Makes 12-16 sliders

  • 2 lbs ground chuck
  • 4 tbsp olive oil – divided in half
  • Salt and pepper
  • 12 – 16 favorite dinner size rolls

  • Tips: Don’t over handle the meat and select a good cut with fat from a reliable butcher.

    Prepare grill and coals. Carefully shape the meat into 12 – 16 patties, making them slightly larger than the width of your rolls.

    Brush both sides of each patty with olive oil. Season them with salt and pepper.

    Cook over a flame of medium height for 2-3 minutes each side for medium-rare or until done to your preference.

    Brush inside of buns with olive oil, add toppings inside the buns and heat lightly over the grill. Put a burger into each roll and serve immediately.
