Signature Chorizo Sliders

Every restaurant has a burger. Some are basic, while others have more “personality” to them. I’ve seen almost anything atop a burger, including fried eggs, an 8 ounce block of cream cheese, fried chicken, guacamole, cole slaw, and the list goes on. While I truly enjoy the unique, shall we say “wierd”, twist that some burgers have, there are few burgers that I think about for days after eating. The Glendower Farms Chorizo Sliders is one for me. My farmer father-in-law actually came up with the recipe blend for them. Did you hear that? I give the farmer credit for this recipe. The first time I made them, I mixed our Glendower Farms chorizo sausage into some Glendower Farms ground pork. When my husband took his first bite, he looked at his father, and said, “Dad, this is a signature recipe!” We all agreed, so we simplified the process for you by adding the chorizo burger, already blended and ready to cook, to our inventory. They’re super simple. Only two ingredients. But there’s nothing simple about the flavor. Here’s how I make them.


2 lbs. Glendower Farms Chorizo burger blend

Kings Hawaiian Rolls

1.  Put the Glendower Farms chorizo burger blend into a large mixing bowl.

2. Using your hands, form the Glendower Farms chorizo burger into small patties (slightly larger than the Hawaiian Rolls because they will shrink a little while cooking).


3. Heat up your pan on the stove. I use a grill pan to give it the grill marks, while keeping all of the juices in the pan, rather than dripping through the grill bars.


4. Cook the patties 3-5 minutes on each side depending on thickness. You want them to be cooked through, but you don’t want to overcook them.

5. Meanwhile, slice the Kings Hawaiian Rolls into little burger buns. The sweetness of the Kings Hawaiian Rolls really compliments the sweet/spice blend in the chorizo.


6. When your sliders are finished cooking, serve them on the Hawaiian Roll buns. My family usually likes ketchup, mayonnaise, cheese, lettuce, tomato, etc. on their burgers, but we prefer these with just meat and bread. There’s something satisfying about the simplicity, and we almost feel like any extra additions detract from the special chorizo flavor.

So, there you have it. A recipe created by the farmer, loved by the whole family. Pick some up today. Sliders are great for tailgate season, appetizers, or a small lunch date (or just lunch). I know you’ll love them as much as we do!
