    Things To Grab

    • Medium bowl
    • Wooden spoon
    • Meat thermometer
    • Cutting board
    • Aluminum foil
    • Sandwich skewer


    1. Prepare pickled onions; cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.

    2. For burgers, stir together cheesy loaf, chopped pickle chips and brine, shallot, dill and cayenne pepper in a medium bowl with the back of a wooden spoon until smooth and well combined; set aside.

    3. Press each slider into a 4½-in.-round patty, about 1/8 in. thick. Spoon about 4½ Tbsp. cheesy mixture in the center of each of 4 patties. Top each with a second patty; pinch edges together to seal. Sprinkle stuffed patties with 1 tsp. garlic pepper; refrigerate for 15 minutes.

    4. Meanwhile, preheat a charcoal or gas grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350 degrees). Grill stuffed patties on a greased grill rack for 15 to 20 minutes or until meat reaches 165 degrees, turning halfway through. Transfer to a clean cutting board; loosely cover with foil and let rest for 3 minutes.

    5. To serve, spread roll bottoms with Wahl sauce; top with lettuce, tomato, burgers, additional Wahl sauce, pickled onions and roll tops. Lightly brush roll tops with vegetable oil and sprinkle with additional garlic pepper, if desired. Thread olives on sandwich skewers and insert into sandwiches, if desired.
