Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400°. On a small baking sheet, arrange the tomatoes in a single layer. Drizzle with about 2 tbsp. olive oil. Season with salt, pepper, and the thyme. Roast until the tomatoes collapse, about 12 minutes.

  • In a small bowl, toss the shallots with the vinegar, honey, and lemon juice. Season with salt.

  • Trim and shred or chop the lettuce.

  • In a medium bowl, mix the beef, parsley, paprika, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Form into 12 small (about 2 oz. each) patties (thinner in the centers for even cooking).

  • Heat a cast-iron griddle or skillet over medium-high. Drizzle with oil. Cook the patties for about 3 minutes. Flip; cook for a minute more. Top each patty with a small spoonful of the cheese.

  • Split the rolls and assemble the sliders by stacking the roll bottoms, lettuce, tomatoes, blue cheese burgers, shallots, and roll tops. Thread an olive onto each toothpick; use to secure each slider.
