It’s Time for the Kick Off – “Date”Worthy Beef and Cheddar Sliders

Date-worthy Beef and Cheddar Sliders | Famished Fish, Finicky Shark

 

It’s Game Day! Who are you rooting for? The Patriots or the Seahawks?

I’m rooting for food. We aren’t much of sports fans over in the Famished Fish household, but we do enjoy the commercials! And the game day snacks.

These “Date”Worthy Beef and Cheddar Sliders were created for #TripleSBites using sponsor ingredients. They are romantically smoky and saucily spicy and zangy. Perfect for serving at your SuperBowl party or on date night in with your honey.

I used Not Ketchup’s Smoky Date Sauce in the ground chuck patties and Pirate Jonny’s Sirena’s Seduction Hot Sauce in the mayonnaise. Topped with creamy avocado and thick cheddar cheese slices, these burgers will vanish in a flash.

 

See, I would have saved these to make for game day today, but we scarfed them down last night so I could create these for you all.
