Cheese and beer huh! Don’t fret yet, you’re in good hands. Cheese and beer sliders are really nice mini burgers that you can enjoy at home. You can also prepare them for a weekend cookout and let people know that you’re not one to mess with when it comes to burgers. Yummy’s got you.
Inspired by Delish, these cheese and beer sliders are exactly that, delicious. Beer is not just an alcoholic drink. It’s bestowed with powers and abilities that are not visible to the naked eye but are really helpful to the body. Of course, if we’re talking about visibility to the eye we don’t mean when people get drunk on beer, that’s super visible. Beer lowers bad cholesterol, it’s known to prevent kidney stones and it helps reduce stress (wink, wink!).
Infusing beer in your burgers helps you enjoy these benefits, the savouriness and grows your creativity in the kitchen department. Being experimental with food helps a lot. What’s so unique about this cheese and beer sliders recipe? Instead of dipping the beef in the beer batter, spread the cooked butter (with cheese) on top of the beef and cover it up with your dinner rolls. Voila!
We seem to be obsessed with burgers this time of the year but it’s warranted. We’re looking forward to the Nairobi Visa Burger Week 2019. The deals, the combos! August 5th-15th will be such a feast. These recipes are our way of staying ready for this foodie festival!
