Whiskey BBQ Sliders
as adapted from the Pioneer Woman
1 lb. ground beef
2 Tb. butter
1/2 c. chopped onion
1/2 c. BBQ sauce
1/4 c. whiskey (1 mini bottle is the exact amount you need!)
several jalapeno slices (to taste)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
12 Hawaiian rolls
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Form beef into 12 little patties. Place into a cast iron skillet with 2 Tb. of butter. Cook until almost done. Remove from the pan, scrape out any grease.
While the onions are cooking, split the slider rolls and put them into a 9x13 baking dish and into the oven to toast for a few minutes. Watch carefully so they do not burn. Times can vary, depending on whether you simply want them warm or actually toasted.
Once the onions are softened and cooked down, add in whiskey and jalapenos and cook for 2-3 minutes until thickened. Add in BBQ sauce and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Once the sauce is thickened, add burgers back in to cook for another few minutes.
