Bacon & Guacamole Sliders with Grilled Watermelon
Jun 18th, 2014
Sliders are a dish that always remind us of summer! Paired with a grilled watermelon (who knew you could do that?!) you’re sure to have the perfect dish for your next gathering.
Here are some tips to make sure it goes off without a hitch:
Add minced garlic and scallions (from our Fresh Cuts Section) to add flavor to the patties.
Don’t over-work the meat! Just fold the ingredients in gently.
Make a thumb indent in the center of each pattie; this ensures an evenly cooked slider and keeps it from turning into a hockey puck!
Flip your meat only once! It will let you know when it’s ready when it stops sticking.
Don’t press your patties! You’ll release all of those delicious juices from the meat.
Cook your watermelon on indirect heat – those natural sugars will caramelize from the heat, giving it an even sweeter flavor.
For an extra kick, add a chili-lime seasoning from McCormick to your watermelon! YUM!
