Meet my new obsession: cheeseburger meatballs!
Seriously, cue all the exclamation points.
Meet my new obsession: cheeseburger meatballs! Seriously, cue all the exclamation points. !!!!!!! Oh my gosh. I cannot even EXPLAIN how delish these are. Like… wow. I’m actually stumped for words. I have to tell you how this recipe came about! My cousin Lacy who works with me always gives me the best recipe ideas. […]

Now this is a bar I always want to go to!
A slider bar, complete with bacon and cheese, ripe off-the-vine summer tomatoes and tons of my favorite condiments? Sign me up.
I’m so excited to be partnering with St Pierre again today, featuring more of their Brioche Buns! It’s no secret how much I love their burger buns, and today, I’m showing you how to set up a slider bar with their Brioche Slider Rolls!
We ADORE these rolls. I’ve been buying them for years – in fact, they are Max’s favorite sandwich vehicle. He eats a sandwich almost everyday on the brioche slider roll. The size is perfect!
The St Pierre Brioche Slider Rolls are the highest quality; they truly taste like they were freshly baked. The rolls can elevate a simple lunch or dinner and make a regular day feel special and extraordinary. The rolls are light and airy, making them perfect for a slider bar. They have a slight hint of sweetness with an almost-buttery taste.
If you have a copy of my book, The Pretty Dish, then you know how much I love a good “bar” or board! I have an entire chapter dedicated to fun bars to set up for entertaining family and friends. You can put your own spin on them and it’s exactly what makes them unique!
This board was also partially inspired by my mom’s summer burger plates. So many times when we make burgers at home, we just have the basics out – cheese, one or two condiments, maybe a slide of lettuce. But my mom NEVER made burgers without serving the works. Multiple condiments and pickles, different kinds of cheese, always lettuce, tomato and onion. She’s plate everything in a pretty way and while it wasn’t on one big board, it was the perfect setup to build your own burger.
And I’m convinced that’s why they always taste so good!
So here we are with our own little burger bar! A how-to, but really a use-what-you-love method, because you can add in whatever your favorite toppings may be! I made a classic slider bar here, but you can also do a themed one, such as a southwest slider bar or even a loaded slider bar with poached eggs and caramelized onions.
My favorite part of this is not only how quickly it comes together, but how fancy it looks. It just looks so fresh and delicious. It makes regular old burgers for dinner feel super special. You can do a scaled down burger bar for your immediate family at home, or if you have a few friends over outside, a larger slider bar to enjoy!
It’s a perfect entertaining idea for Labor Day too!
Tell me tell me: what would be on your ideal slider bar board?
Isn’t this a dream?!
This grilled cheeseburger pizza almost turned me into a crazy person. That probably doesn’t surprise you, since I’m the person putting a burger on a pizza. But still. I don’t know why, but I could NOT stop thinking about this combination. Couldn’t stop. Remember a few years ago when I made a copycat smoke shack […]
This grilled cheeseburger pizza almost turned me into a crazy person.
That probably doesn’t surprise you, since I’m the person putting a burger on a pizza. But still.
I don’t know why, but I could NOT stop thinking about this combination. Couldn’t stop. Remember a few years ago when I made a copycat smoke shack burger?! For some reason, a few months ago the idea of putting it all on pizza, like, yes, the idea of immensely trashing up TWO recipes, was stuck in my head.
Every time we are near a Shake Shack, we have to stop. I’m team Shake Shack over everything else, even In and Out (which we don’t have) and Five Guys (which we do have). Shake Shack all the way. Eddie agrees and I won’t even begin to tell you his order. It’s basically a sin.
The crazy thing is that I usually just want a classic cheeseburger when it comes to a place like that. However, every single time I’m there, the smoke shack burger screams my name from the menu. It’s the first burger I ever tasted there and I just can’t pass it up. It’s smoky and slightly spicy and just so.dang.good. Bacon, cherry peppers, cheddar and special sauce… now tell me that doesn’t sound good?
So I had to pizza it. Yes, a verb. To pizza something. Welcome to my English lesson.
It’s not the most photogenic pizza, but it is heaven off the grill.
It comes as no surprise since this is a cheeseburger pizza that there is beef and cheese. Shocking! The specials twist on here is the delish sauce that you’ll want to eat with a spoon, the crispy crunch bacon and the cherry peppers.
Oh, and that it’s grilled! The smoky flavor is fantastic.
When I first made a cheeseburger pizza (in a cast iron skillet!) I was really making it for Eddie. Figured he’d LOVE it. I never expected to love it as much as I did. And sometimes I get these crazy cheeseburger pizza cravings and want to make one – but they do take a little extra time. You have to brown the beef, make the sauce, grate the cheese, all that jazz.
It is so so so worth it though. This is a hearty, heavy pizza and you may only need one slice. Serve it with a big greens salad (spring greens, salt, pepper, lemon, olive oil) and it may just become your new favorite dinner.
This grilled cheeseburger pizza is my take on the smoke shack burger! Cheddar, bacon, cherry peppers and special sauce make this impossible to resist.
Definitely all the heart eyes.
