November comes along and minds are on travel, turkey and family gatherings. This classic slider provides an autumn twist. This Bacon and Bleu Cheese Slider will fast become a family favorite and change up the typical “hamburger night.” The dish is fun, and uses a slight shortcut with cornbread mix and it’s easy to get the kids involved (buttering the pan, mixing the ingredients, what kid doesn’t want to crack an egg?). If you aren’t a bleu cheese fan, easily substitute equal amount of goat or gorgonzola cheese. For an extra kick, add one jalapeno (seeded) to the cornbread mix. Prefer a moister cornbread muffin? Replace 1 cup of the milk with one can creamed corn. Kids typically prefer a toned down version of the mayo, use more or less of the chipotle depending upon your families taste. These sliders make great appetizers for your holiday parties or a great main dish for family meals. Enjoy!
