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……

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.
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….
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…..
