Info
These burgers marked several firsts. My first sliders and my first burgers on my new salt block. Like most items made on salt blocks, it was a simple recipe. The ground beef received some ketchup, deli mustard, pepper and milk. I am guessing the milk was to help the smaller patties hold together while keeping them moist. The burgers were grilled for 3 minutes a side at 500 degrees and then topped with cheese for an additional minute. The resulting burgers had great flavor and were quite moist on the inside. These are so quick and easy to make, they would be suited for large groups as appetizers or starters.
