Ingredients for 6 servings
½ teaspoon black pepper
¾ pound lean ground sirloin
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 ounces extra-sharp Cheddar cheese, thinly sliced
12 miniature buns or dinner rolls
24 small dill pickle slices
olive oil cooking spray
Remove some of the fluffy center from the buns so that they will sit well on top of burgers; set aside.
Combine sirloin with Worcestershire and pepper, and form into 12 (2-inch) flat patties.
Preheat a lightly oiled grill pan over moderate heat until hot but not smoking. Cook burgers over moderate heat, turning, and evenly top with cheese, about 2 minutes per side for medium or until cheese is melted. (Use a meat thermometer to check that burgers have reached 160°.) Transfer the burgers to a plate, and grill the buns, cut sides down, 1-2 minutes or until toasted.
Sandwich burgers between buns with about 2 pickles per slider.
