How to cook:
  1. Grilling:
  2. Preheat grill to 350°F.
  3. To a medium bowl, add ground meat, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and worcestershire sauce.
  4. Pour melted lard over the top. (skip the lard if your meat has fat ground in) Mix with your hands until spices are well-combined with the meat. Work quickly because the lard will start to set-up. When you're done mixing, the lard should be distributed in small dots throughout the meat.
  5. Divide meat into 4 equal portions. Then divide each portion into 3 equal portions. You should have 12 pieces of meat total.
  6. Roll each piece of meat into a ball, then form into a patty by squishing it between the palms of your hands. Patties should be about 2.5-3" in diameter. Using your thumb, place a small dimple in the middle of each patty. If your patties have warmed up, place them in the fridge for 30 minutes to help them stick together.
  7. Place patties on preheated grill. Cook for 4 minutes or until browned on the bottom.
  8. Flip burgers and immediately top with 2 slices of cheese per burger. Cook for an addiitonal 2 minutes or until cheese is melted and burgers are cooked through. Remove to a plate and assemble burgers.
  9. Assembly Suggestions:
  10. You can assemble your burgers however you'd like but this is how I like to do it!
  11. Spread mayo on brioche rolls. Place burger patties on bottom halves of rolls. Top with 1 full slice of bacon per slider.
  12. Add lettuce, onion, and tomato on top. Add ketchup and mustard. Place top half of rolls on top. Place a sandwich pick in each burger to hold them together. Enjoy!
  13. Notes:
  14. Thaw your meat on paper towels to help remove off flavors. This also removes excess liquid which helps to keep your patties from falling apart.
  15. If your meat has fat ground in, there is no need to add the lard. But it adds juiciness to burgers that don't already have fat.
  16. Since sliders are so small, they cook quickly. Make sure you add the cheese as soon as you flip them so they don't overcook.
  17. If you're not using a pellet grill, you can turn up the temperature.
