Wine Pairings by @grapefriend

Cabernet is a true friend to heavy cheeses and bold sauces.

Beer Pairings

We like a richer beer, something like Alesmith’s Nut Brown, to bring out the smoky and sweet flavors in the sauce.

What To Do:

Ball Hawk Sliders - Step 1

1. Cook Onions: Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a medium sauté pan over moderately high heat. Cook onion with tsp salt, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 6-8 minutes.

2. Onion chopping: Chop half of the cooked onions and transfer to a medium mixing bowl. Chop the cilantro.

3. Mix Onions and Salsa: Put the unchopped onions in a small mixing bowl with half of the chipotle salsa. Stir together. Set aside (this is your crazy good burger topping).

4. Make Burger Mixture: Add the turkey, chopped cilantro, remaining salsa, cumin and ½ teaspoon salt to the chopped onion in the mixing bowl. Use your hands to mix together.

5. Form Burgers: Divide the turkey mixture into 4 equal pieces. Form into patties making an indent in the middle with your thumb.

6. Cook Burgers: Add two teaspoons oil to the sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add burgers and cook until golden brown and cooked through, gently turning once. About 4 minutes per side.

7. Cheese Burgers: In the last minute of cooking, sprinkle sliders with cheese and cook until just slightly melted. Remove from pan.

8. Toast Buns (optional): Brush buns with oil and place in the still hot sauté pan to toast

To Serve: Place burgers on bottom buns, top with reserved chipotle onion mixture and bun tops.
