Bonfires, Football and More

There are so many reasons people are getting together this time of year. Folks are gathering for bonfires, tailgating, hayrides and good ol' fashion fall fun! And when it is time to start your next autumn party, you've got to be ahead of the game with great recipes ready to go.

When it comes to parties, any get together, or heck, even a weeknight meal, what is more fun, more tasty than sliders? I'll give you a minute to think....Nothing, right??!! They are easy to eat, no matter where you are, and can usually be whipped up in almost no time. Plus, if you're having an day event, it's easy to make them ahead, and then reheat them as you go!

When I first saw these, my eyes immediately went to the sesame seeds. I'm a sucker for a good bun with sesame seeds on it. But then when I read the other ingredients, I was literally drooling. I knew I wanted to serve them at the next party we had, but to be honest, I don't entertain a lot, so I figured, hey, they would make a great simple supper too!

No matter what you've got planned this fall, easy, tasty food needs to be a part of it. These little sliders are like a party in a bun!

Party Burgers
1 lb. ground beef
12 dinner rolls
1 (10 oz.) can diced tomatoes with green chilies, drained
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. ground mustard
1/2 tsp. paprika
3 garlic cloves, minced
Salt and Pepper to taste
12 slices medium cheddar cheese

1 stick butter
2 TBS brown sugar
1 TBS Worcestershire sauce
1 TBS mustard
1 TBS sesame seeds  

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9 x13 baking dish with nonstick spray. In a large skillet, brown beef with garlic. Drain if necessary. Add cumin, paprika, onion powder, ground mustard, salt and pepper. Add tomatoes. Stir to combine. In a medium pan, combine sauce ingredients. Heat on low until combined. Lay bottoms of rolls in dish. Using a slotted spoon, add beef mixture, making sure it is evenly distributed. Top with sliced cheese. Add tops of rolls. Pour sauce over. Spread evenly. Sprinkle with extra sesame seeds, if desired. Bake for 25 minutes.
