Sliders Into Home Plate

I LOVE baseball season.  If I could afford it I would buy season tickets and spend all season at the ballpark!  My dream vacation is trying to see how many ball parks we could go to in a period of time.  CRAZY I know.  So when my friend Alex over at Ma, What's for Dinner? posted recipes dedicated to the opening day of baseball, I was intrigued.  Each Tuesday my boss makes sliders for lunch.  I love them, but sadly never made them for my family.  Well after finding this recipe, they will now be a regular on the menu plan.  One word YUM!!
Sliders Into Home Plate
From Ma,What's For Dinner?
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 T dried onion
1 T seasoning salt
sliced cheddar
12 dinner rolls
*optional bacon, ham or Canadian Bacon
sliced tomatoes
In a large bowl combine the meat, onions, steak seasoning, and water. Mix well to blend and then form about 1/4 cup of the the meat into small burgers . Stick em on the grill for about 4 minutes on the first side. Flip ‘em and then toss the cheese on top and grill for another 3-4 minutes.
Place these little beauties on a roll and serve with ketchup, mustard and other burger toppings.
*I added some Canadian bacon to each patty before adding the cheese.

Thanks Alex!  


  1. YUM! I've thought about making these but never have. Thanks for posting this 'cause now I know what we'll be eating on Saturday after my son's baseball game :)

  2. Yeah, they look really yummy, but then I'd want an order of fries...and then I'd want a chocolate shake...and then I'd want...


  3. We love baseball too. The Red Sox are our team!! My son lives and breathes Red Sox baseball, and let me tell you, they are not off to a good start...0 and 5 as I type this.

    I have often done baseball-type dinners for our family. We always do it on the All-Star game and then again during the World Series. Hot dogs or sub sandwiches, peanuts in the shell (I even spread beach towels on the floor so they could toss the shells on the ground, ala stadium style), cracker jacks, etc.

    It is so fun to celebrate our favorite things with special treats. I'm sure your family loved your sliders. But even more than the food, they probably liked the celebration dinner.


  4. These look good. I love mini-versions of foods!

  5. first time what lovely looking sliders.....just perfect n delicious ! u hav a wonderful collection of recipes in your space! glad to follow ur visit mine whenever u hav time :-)

  6. Those are definitely a recipe I'm trying. The grandchildren love sliders because they are just the right size.

  7. Count me in as a never made sliders, cook. A fun dinner for sure. I will have to give these a try, this summer especially when we can grill.

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
