A BIG Thank You! To True Aussie Beef & Lamb who provided us with a Big Green Egg and amazing Aussie Lamb for this post.
These easy Greek Sliders make an awesome easy appetizer recipe for a cookout or game day.
Today is a continuation of our Two Chicks and Their Big Green Egg summer grilling series. If you missed Part 1 make sure you head over and check it out!
We made a lot of easy slider recipes here on Home. Made. Interest.. We just can’t get enough of them! From Chicken Parmesan Sliders to Philly Cheesesteak Sliders we’ve turned some of our favorite recipes into simple slider recipes that are perfect for parties. This week we’re going back to basics with these grilled Greek Sliders. We made them to go with our Herb Crusted Grilled Leg of Lamb at the cookout we hosted a couple of weekends ago and they were a huge hit.
Our Greek Sliders are made from Aussie beef mixed with Kalamata olives and red onion. Guys, I can’t tell you how much fun we’ve been having with the Big Green Egg and all of the amazing lamb and beef that True Aussie Beef & Lamb sent us! Most of you probably don’t think of beef as coming from Australia, at least I know I didn’t, but Australia’s unique climate and environment allows cattle to live in their natural state and produces a consistent supply all year round. I was really impressed with the quality of the Aussie ground beef we used for the Greek Sliders and if how quickly they disappeared off of the platter is any indication so was everyone else.
We grilled the Greek Sliders on the Big Green Egg and that natural charcoal added a great smokey flavor to the burgers. Each slider patty went on a slider bun along with homemade tzatziki sauce, spinach, cucumbers and fresh tomatoes right out of Melinda’s garden. The combination of the light, bright sauce, and the beefy burger filled with tangy Kalamata olives and onions made for a spectacular Greek Slider that our guests loved. We totally OWNED that party! 🙂
