Recipe of the Month: Grilled Pretzel Roll Ham SlidersFebruary 27, 2017 Outdoor Cooking
Who doesn’t love a good slider? Our highlighted recipe for this month is versatile, feel free to change it up to your liking, but we have a hunch you may keep it just the way it is! Meet this month’s mouth-watering, gotta-have grilling grub …
So what’s our secret? See below …
1 red onion
Extra virgin olive oil
Butter (salted) (secret #1)
Fine sea salt
4 pretzel rolls, about 3in. in diameter (secret #2)
1 pound thick-cut ham
4 oz. Brie cheese, Cut into chunks
4 cocktail skewers
Prepare the grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat, about 500°F grill grate temperature. Slice the red onion into 3/4in. thick slices. Oil both sides and season liberally with salt.
Grill the onion slices until translucent and soft, about 10 minutes. Remove from the grill, brake the slices down into rings and set to the side.
Slice the pretzel rolls. Spread salted butter on each side (don’t be conservative, didn’t you hear? Butter is good for you now, so go ahead and take advantage before they change their mind on us again)! Grilling the buns (especially these buns) will make all of the difference, trust us!
Brush each slice of ham on both sides with olive oil and season with salt. The olive oil will help form a crust on the outside of the meat. Grill ham, turning once, 1 to 2 minutes per side. After flipping the meat, add a large ring of onion to the top of each slice, so it sits neatly in a circle.
Add the cheese on top of the onion. The cheese will melt, almost into a creamy sauce, and the onions will help hold the cheese on top of the ham. While the cheese is melting, lightly grill the rolls.
Gently remove the meat when the cheese has melted and transfer directly onto the pretzel rolls. Skewer each slider to hold it together.
Open wide and enjoy!
