PW Wednesday’s: Mushroom Sliders with Fry Sauce


PW Wednesday’s: Mushroom Sliders with Fry Sauce grab a cold brew and dig in for some delicious comfort food!mushroom-onion-sliders-1
Annnnd we’re back with the 2nd installment of Pioneer Woman Wednesday’s! You might want to grab a cold brew to drink with these babies. These are the perfect summer grilling meal. This week, the menu choice was chosen by the lovely Megan. Good job, Megan ;) but whatever happened to our rule of no frying or oil splattering? Haha juuuust kidding!

I think all of us had issues with these sliders but boy, the results sure make us forget pretty quickly what messes may have happened in the kitchen. Plus, you can always send the misters in the kitchen to do the dirty work after you’ve slaved over the stove, right?

Pioneer Woman, I gotta hand it to her, she knows how to make challenging meals turn into delicious, unforgettable dishes that you will make over and over again. I think all her recipes have some sort of challenge to them, or maybe it’s just the ones we’ve chosen, haha..there’s definitely methods to getting them right but I feel like that’s the way she is. She teaches you through scrumptious food so you’ll make it again and get that method down pat.

These burgers, although they did make quite the splatter mess for some of us, were definitely well worth it in the end. My favorite part was the fry sauce. Mayo, ketchup, and cayenne pepper. Woooow. So flipping good. I kept dipping my sliders in it, probably not the best. Also, the fact that these were topped with mushrooms and onions cooked down in wine (yeah, so mine were overly wine-y since I halved the recipe & forgot to halve the wine — but I guess you could see that as me doing it on purpose, ha!) made them so flavorful. I didn’t use ground beef like the recipe called for (I know, such a rebel), I went with ground turkey because I had that in the freezer and it needed to be used. I still think it turned out awesome and we have leftovers so I’m more than ok with that!

Be sure to grab the recipe over at Megan’s blog if you want to make these for a summer cookout and be sure to check out the other participating ladies’ posts below:

Stay tuned for more PW Wednesday’s!! :) Aren’t these fun?!

    You ladies definitely have me craving burgers this morning – these sliders look so good!!

  2. 04/18/2012 at 7:33 am

    A mess there definitely was and I’m dying over the doubled wine… hey at least it turned out tasty! :)

  3. 04/18/2012 at 7:52 am

    I need these, like right now!!

  4. 04/18/2012 at 7:57 am

    These look so good…I love that you doubled the wine!

  5. 04/18/2012 at 8:43 am

    I want these!! All of them!

  6. 04/18/2012 at 8:48 am

    Yes, these are fun! Wait, was I supposed to answer that? haha
    I love that you used turkey. I thought about doing that since I had both on hand but didn’t in the end. I might try it next time with it though b/c there will definitely be a next time. These were beyond delicious! And um, I made these at lunch yesterday (a work day) and may or may not have taken a swig of that wine after the mushrooms got their little alcohol bath. ;)

    What a great idea that a few bloggers make the same recipe! Love to see how you all got your own style and that the pictures are diffrent. I will defenitly follow the rest of your PW Wednesday serie!

    For some reason I am getting very hungry for sliders ;)

  9. 04/18/2012 at 9:47 am

    Yeah…sorry about the frying thing (Again!) hahah But dang these were a good idea, I have to say. And you’re totally spot on with sending the misters to do the cleaning. My dinner guests cleaned up my entire kitchen. A total win all around.

    That fry sauce would do me in – I’m convinced there is no better combination in the world than ketchup and mayo. HEAVEN.

  11. 04/18/2012 at 10:44 am

    As I said many many times and on many blogs, I LOVE sliders!!! And anything that has mushrooms!!

  12. 04/18/2012 at 11:06 am

    oh my goodness…I have only recently discovered my love for mushrooms and these sound like the most perfect way to cook them up..sadly my fiance wont go near the things..

  13. 04/18/2012 at 11:11 am

    oh wow, these sound awesome! and i agree – whenever i cook + make a big mess, hubs is always in charge of cleaning up. =) we consider it a fair trade-off!

  14. 04/18/2012 at 11:36 am
