Grillo's Pickles® & King's Hawaiian Beef & Queso Sliders

Just when you thought Beef and Queso Sliders couldn't get any better, this recipe raises the stakes with Grillo's Pickles® and King Hawaiian Pretzel buns.


  • 1 Pound 93% Lean Ground Beef
  • 8 Kings Hawaiian Pretzel Buns
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup light beer
  • 2 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/4 cup pickled jalapeno pepper slices
  • 8 red onion slices
  • 8 Grillo's Pickles® Classic Dill Chips


  1. Combine Ground Beef, bread crumbs, garlic, salt and pepper in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into eight 1/2-inch thick mini-patties.

  2. In a small pot over medium heat combine cream cheese, beer, shredded cheese, and heavy cream. Wisk mixture until smooth and all the cheese is melted about 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low and keep warm till ready to serve. 

  3. Place patties on grill over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 9 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 9 to 10 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally. 

  4. Place burgers on top of 8 slider buns. Top with pickles, 1 slice of red onion, 2 jalapenos and 2 Tbsp. beer cheese. 

  • Test Kitchen Tips Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
