Hot Italian Sliders

" These saucy burgers have just enough spice to delight the taste buds. An optional addition would be a slice of mozzarella cheese on top."


28 oz. can crushed tomatoes, undrained
1/2 can (6 oz) tomato paste
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
2 teaspoons salt
1 chipotle chile in adobo sauce (from 7-oz can), finely chopped
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil leaves

1 1/2 lb bulk hot Italian sausage
1 lb ground beef
1/3 saltine cracker crumbs
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
20 small round buns


FOR SAUCE: In 3-quart saucepan over medium heat, bring tomatoes, tomato paste, dried oregano, salt and chipotle chile to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. If desired, with potato masher, crush tomatoes to form sauce. Stir in basil.

In large bowl, combine all slider ingredients: Mix well. Shape into patties 2 to 2 1/2 inches in diameter. This can be measured using an ice cream scoop with mixture slightly rounded.

In large skillet or Dutch oven, brown patties in batches over medium-high heat, remove cooked patties to slow cooker on low setting. Pour sauce over patties. Cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Serve on small round buns(dollar buns).
