Three Meat Sliders on Brioche Buns

Have you ever been inspired to make a dish just based on a single ingredient? I came across this newish (have only been open for less than a year) bakery in Worthington called Holiday Baking Company that makes some delicious brioche and even yummier still, these tiny brioche rolls. Once I saw them, I couldn’t help but pick them up and declared them perfect for sliders.

I can’t really quantify a recipe for this, sadly, as I basically just played it by ear. I split and buttered the brioche rolls, and then grilled them. The burgers are a mix of pork, beef and veal, with a bunch of spices and Roasted Garlic and Onion Jam mixed into it. I made an garlic mayo for the buns, and topped them with some Boston lettuce, garlic cheddar, and Applewood Smoked Ready Bacon. Yum.

Since this was a mid-winter spur of the moment thing, I couldn’t exactly grill the burgers on the BBQ outside, and ended up cooking them in my Arepa Maker (unitasker? I don’t think so!). I was surprised at how well it worked.

So what ingredients inspire you? What food discovery have you made that caused you to plan a whole meal around it?

  1. I so want one of those arepa makers! I haven't seen them in Canada yet.
    Your sliders look wonderful, I love brioche. I am really craving a burger now..
    Thank you so much for your kind words and concern for Bella. She is sleeping happily right now.

  2. I got mine at Amazon.com (link to it is on the words Arepa Maker in my post). Sadly, I haven't used it to make arepas yet. I so have to go the Hispanic grocery down the street and get the proper flour.

    I'm so glad to hear that Bella is doing well. Hopefully the medication will keep on working and she'll have a long, seizure free life from here on out.

  3. I'm trying to picture in my mind where this is. Is it as far down as DairyQueen/Kinkos/Mrs. Goodmans? On the map, it looks closer to the library but I can't think where it might be.

  4. It's a bit further north of where the Fed Ex/Kinkos is. About a block or so, it's in a shopping center on the same side of the street right before you get to the next cross street. If you look it up on Google Maps, you can do a street view that will show you exactly where it is.

  5. Where can I get brioche buns in Columbus? I am making a black truffle burger and need them for the best result.

  6. Unfortunately, the place where I got them before (Holiday Baking Company in Worthington) is now a gluten free only bakery and no longer makes them.

    My advice? Use the little rolls that Amy at Omega Baking in the North Market makes. I think they would be delicious with burgers.
