Juicy Lucy Sliders Recipe
Take a large skillet and heat oil in it on medium heat.
Add onions and cook or 5 minutes so that their edges start turning brown. Stir occasionally and let the onions cook for 20 more minutes so that it is caramelized and turns brown.
Add the garlic, chipotles, salt, and black pepper. Cook for another 1-2 minutes, or until properly combined. Then, turn off the heat.
Preheat your oven broiler.
Make 12 portions of the meat, each of about 2 ounces. Turn each into a 2.5-3-inch diameter patty with cheese stuffed in the center.
Line a baking sheet with foil and place the patties on it. Sprinkle salt on all the patties.
Broil for about 6 minutes, or until the cheese melts and the burgers are medium cooked and juicy (pink in the center)
In a small bowl, mix ketchup, black pepper, and salt. Brush some ketchup on the burgers and layer the bottom halves of the slider buns with it.
On each bun, place a burger and top it with some spicy onions. To finish, place the top halves of the buns on top.
