Redneck Sliders

These are fantastic little sliders with a sort of loose meat filling, not to be confused with traditional "Loose Meat" burgers.  They are cheesy, savory, and sure to disappear. Try these Redneck Sliders at your next party or tailgate, and you will be surprised at how big a hit they will be.  Enjoy!

1 lb hamburger meat
1 lb tube of breakfast sausage (like Jimmy Dean's)
1/4 C finely minced onion
1 serrano or jalapeno, chopped and seeded, if desired
Olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
Black pepper, to taste
1 lb Velveeta cheese, cubed
1 T Worcestershire sauce
2 T ketchup
2 teaspoons yellow mustard
24 slider buns

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.  Wrap the slider buns in foil and put them in the oven to warm while you cook the filling. 

Drizzle some olive oil in a skillet and preheat it to medium high heat.  Cook the onion and serrano until they are soft, about 3-4 minutes.  Add in the hamburger meat, sausage, garlic and black pepper.  Cook the mixture and break it up until it's browned and cooked through.  Drain grease, if necessary.  Add in the Worcestershire sauce, ketchup and mustard and stir.  Add in the Velveeta and cook and stir until the cheese is completely melted and smooth.  Remove it from the heat.  Serve the meat on the buns.
