Scotch Egg Sliders

Welcome to this anniversary edition of Mitten Movie Night! Anniversary of my blog? No.  Anniversary of the first Mitten Movie Night? No.  It’s actually close enough to 14 years of marriage for me and my hubby.  It is next week so why not celebrate now?  And I think I came up with the perfect dinner for my slider loving hubby, Scotch Egg Sliders.

I was first introduced to the scotch egg just 3 short years ago.  My friend had a party pretty much every Friday over the Summer and everyone was to bring a dish.  One Friday someone brought them and let me tell you-they went fast! Luckily I got one and I was blown away at how delicious they were.

With dinner we are drinking Mosaic-Hero IPA from Revolution Brewing.  Then we are binge watching the last few episodes of Ozark.  Have you seen this show? I cannot believe that it took us so long to finally get into it.  I’ve heard several people rave about it and I’ll tell you, the reviews are spot on because it’s amazing.  I will say that Jason Bateman plays the perfect ‘man who has decided to not give a sh!$ anymore’ character.  So enough about that and my anniversary and on to the food!

To start with let’s boil up 4 eggs.  I boil them for around 14 minutes so they are hard in the center.  Now I’ll be honest that while I was excited about this recipe I was NOT excited about peeling eggs.  I am just bad at it! Exhibit A: The below photo with the sad face is my failed attempt.  I knew if I kept that up there would be no egg to go into the middle of my sausage so that was a fail.

So instead of continuing I hopped online and actually found a video for ‘5 Egg Hacks‘ and guess what, it worked!  See Exhibit B: The below photo with the happy face.  Success!  No more wanting to scream anytime I want to make a delicious hard boiled egg. How ’bout that!?!

Slice the eggs enough so you have 8 thick slices.  I basically didn’t use the ends.  If you don’t want to have them go to waste maybe boil extra eggs and use the ends to make some of my son’s favorite potato salad?  Now take the sausage and cut it into 8 pieces.  Take a little over half of the meat of one patty and flatten it down.  Place the egg in the middle. Roll the edges over the egg then place the remaining sausage on top.  Smooth the edges so that it hides all the egg and makes a nice patty.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Line a baking pan with tin foil then spray with cooking spray.  Now set up the breading station-flour on one plate, egg in a bowl then panko breadcrumbs on another plate.  Take each patty and cover all sides with the flour.  Then dip both sides into the egg.  Finally cover in panko.  Place onto the baking sheet.  Cook for 35 minutes flipping halfway through.

Basically that is all the cooking that this takes.  Grab some slider buns and grainy mustard.  Our local store just got a new line of sauces and I picked up the Smoked Porter Mustard for this recipe.  Assemble the sliders: bun, scotch egg patty then the mustard.  Simple and delicious.  And here you are……

Cream Cheese Slider Sandwiches #SundaySupper

Heading out to a picnic?  These little slider sandwiches with big flavor are perfect because they are very portable.  The sweetness of the roll mixed with savory cream cheese and deli meats can be rich but also addicting.  Limit yourself to one then treat yourself to a great picnic dessert like my Piña Colada Upside Down Cake.

Cream Cheese Slider Sandwiches | Bottom Left of the Mitten

This week started 3 day work weeks for my husband.  Normally he already works 4-10 hour shifts so with enough saved up vacation time he took another day off every week until September.  Plenty of time to have fun in the pool and discover new places that we haven’t visited yet is on our agenda. This past week alone took Little A to his very first trip to SkyZone and a zoo that was truly amazing.

Then of course we will be hitting the usual places that we love:

Head over to St. Joseph, MI for the Splash Pad and grab a slice of pizza at Silver Beach Pizza
Visit the animals at Potawatomi Zoo – The oldest zoo in Indiana.
Central Park in Mishawaka – Our newest find! A smaller splash pad and play area. The perfect place to have a picnic!
Make sure to catch a South Bend Cubs game.

See the area that we live in is coined ‘ Michiana’.  On the boarder of Michigan and Indiana.  Head to Kalamazoo or to South Bend  in equal time.  Plus we are about equally 2-1/2 hours from Detroit, Indianapolis and Chicago.  So many possibilities but since we aren’t giant planners we will have to just see where the Summer takes us.  Now on to the picnic food!

Cream Cheese Slider Sandwiches | Bottom Left of the Mitten

Sweet Hawaiian rolls make the perfect bun for these sandwiches.  These slider buns come in a a package that can be used to get them where they are going.  First let’s make the herbed cream cheese.  Take 1 block of cream cheese and make sure it’s softened.  Mix in garlic powder, oregano and parley then stir to combine.

Cut the buns in half placing the bottom half back into the box that the rolls originally came in. Spread half of the cream cheese on the buns.  Layer ham, sliced tomatoes then the turkey pastrami.  Taking the top half put the rest of the cream cheese on it then put on top.  All done!  You are picnic ready in less than 10 minutes.

After the sandwiches have been assembled here is a great way to transport them to your favorite picnic location-use the packaging from the rolls.  Since they were made right in the paper tray now just cover with two pieces of plastic wrap and put back into bag.  Tie with plastic tie and you are ready!  Place the sandwiches at the top of your cooler so they don’t get flattened.  And here your are….

Wing Sauce Sliders

I’ll be upfront right now. And this may make me unpopular but for a long time I couldn’t even smell Buffalo Wing Sauce. In fact it’s been over a decade that even looking at the sauce would give me chills. Flash back 2003….my husband had just won Virginia’s Strongest Man. We actually had friends in the area so we went out and celebrated afterwards at a local wing place. Well, let’s just say that I ‘Celebrated’ a little too much **insert you shaking your head here because most of us have ‘been there’**.

Wing Sauce Sliders | Bottom Left of the Mitten

So, there’s that. But I can FINALLY say that after my pregnancy with my youngest my taste buds must have been awakened because I craved spicy stuff constantly and have been on the Wing Sauce bandwagon ever since. I’m like ‘Let’s put it on everything!’ Just like I do with these Wing Sauce Sliders.

Wing Sauce Sliders | Bottom Left of the Mitten
Not only have my tastes changed over the years but my entertainment habits have too.  Now instead of going out and getting crazy I much prefer staying at home and spending Mitten Movie Nights  making a great meal and pairing it with some great beer while watching some great entertainment.  Ok, now on to the food!

First you will prepare your chicken. Cut the pieces down to size for as many sliders as you are expecting to prepare. After cutting them into as many pieces as you have buns (I had 12) pound them out with a mallet to thin them out. This helps to tenderize them and you don’t have to cook them as long so they turn out a little juicer.

Wing Sauce Sliders | Bottom Left of the Mitten
Add vegetable oil to the pan. I usually use about 1/2 cup. Bring oil to a temperature that will ‘fry’ the chicken breasts. You can test by adding a little of the dredging mixture and see if it sizzles. While that is heating up put 1/2 cup flour onto a plate. Dredge the chicken so it is coated on all sides of the chicken. Test to see if oil is hot enough. If it is add chicken to pan.  Cook first side around 6-8 minutes–DO NOT TOUCH IT once it’s in the oil. I’m telling you, you want the crunchy part of this chicken to stay intact because it’s delicious and you will ruin it if you mess with it. Ok, rant over :’) Flip over (again, only 1 time) and cook another 6-8 minutes. Remove from pan and let drain on paper towel.

While your chicken is cooking make up the sauces to go with these. First off let’s start with the Garlic Parmesan Sauce.  Mix all the ingredients together in a covered bowl. Once the chicken is cooked take the amount of you want to have the Garlic Parmesan sauce on it and add to bowl with the combined sauce. Cover & shake. Go ahead and get your arm workout for the day.

For the Buffalo Wing sliders just take some Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce and add it to a covered bowl. Just like with the Garlic Parmesan sauce shake the daylights out of it until the sauce covers all parts of the chicken.

The topper for these sliders is a Blue Cheese Sauce that is a perfect combination with the bite of the cheese, creaminess and then the crunch of the celery.  The perfect topping!

Put chicken onto your slider buns. Viola!  Take your sauce & slather it all over the top of your sliders. Add tomato and lettuce so you get your veggies. And here you are……

Turkey & Bacon Sliders with ‘Isn’t That Special’ Sauce #SundaySupper

Sliders have been a huge hit in my house since I started making them about a year ago.  In the summer they pair well with chips and other cold side dishes. In the winter they are perfect for dipping into soups.  They are also big on flavor when you hit the right combination.  I think I have a winner for you today for Sunday Supper, Turkey & Bacon Sliders with ‘Isn’t That Special’ Sauce.

Turkey Back Slider from Bottom Left of the Mitten

Sure you can make these sliders just plain or maybe add some boring mayonnaise on it but why would you when you can add some ‘Isn’t That Special’ Sauce?  While this is similar to the pickle & vinegar based sauce we all know and love I really wanted to set mine apart with a unique name.  So I am paying homage to a show that I have loved since my early teen’s, Saturday Night Live.

You know that question, “Who are the 3 people you would invite to dinner?”  I could easily answer that and everyone at the table would be a former cast member of SNL.  I am a super Tina Fey Fan Girl.  Will Ferrell in my eyes is the hottest guy in Hollywood.  And Steve Martin is a genius. Who would you invite to dinner?

Alright, enough chit chat.  Let’s get cooking!.  Gather your ingredients….

Turkey & Bacon Sliders from Bottom Left of the Mitten

Cook your bacon according to package direction.  I just make mine right on my stove top but my friend swears by baking it in the oven.  Drain the bacon then set up a slider assembly.  Grease the bottom of a baking dish.  Add buns, turkey, bacon and cheese.  Top off with the bun.  In a microwave safe mug add 2 Tbs. butter and 1/2 tsp. garlic powder.  Melt butter in microwave.  Pour on top of the sliders.  Put sliders into a preheated 375 degree over for 15 minutes.

For the sauce.  Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.  Done!  Pour over the sliders when they are served. Add tomatoes if you wish. And here you are…..
