Creating a big game menu needs to focus on one idea, variety. Hash Brown Sliders take the classic game day menu item, sliders and offer a plant-based food option. Even if you are the most ardent carnivore, one bite might have you adding an extra hash brown slider to the plate.
Whether it is a big game menu or just looking to add more balance to food choices, plant-based food recipes often transform classic dishes in creative ways. Although a simple ingredient swap can be an option, sometimes the recipes bring big, bold flavors that instantly get people to take notice.
Dr. Praeger’s created a sliders recipe that uses its Southwest Hash Browns. The seasoned hash browns are the first layer of flavor that heightens the eating satisfaction. Even if you eat this dish with a fork versus your hands, the combination of ingredients will leave you adding a second slider to your plate.
Dr. Praeger’s Partytime Hash Brown Sliders won’t make you say where’s the beef.
Dr. Praeger’s graciously shared its recipe for the Partytime Hash Brown Sliders. Here’s how to make them.
Dr. Praeger’s Partytime Hash Brown Sliders
- 1 box Dr. Praeger’s Southwest Hash Browns
- small bunch of basil
- 1 Tbs. roasted red pepper spread or harissa
- 2 avocados
- 2 tomatoes (sliced)
- 4 small slices of sharp cheddar cheese
- ½ lime (juiced)
- salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven or toaster oven to 450°F. Place hash browns on an ungreased baking pan. Bake approximately 5 minutes until browned. Carefully flip and place a small slice of cheese on 4 of the hash browns and bake an additional 4 minutes.
- Mash avocado with lime, salt and pepper to taste.
- On top of each hash brown with melted cheese, layer basil, roasted red pepper spread, tomato, mashed avocado and a second hash brown.
If you are making this recipe, here are a few hints. First, harissa is a better choice than roasted red pepper spread. The North African aromatic pepper paste plays perfectly with the sweetness of the tomatoes. It offers that delightful contrast that makes it quite satisfying.
Also, this recipe recommends sharp cheddar cheese. If that cheese isn’t your preference, you can experiment with other cheese flavors. For example, a smoky gouda might be a nice option.
Lastly, the lime on the avocado is important. That touch of acid brightens the dish and keeps that avocado fresh.
Overall, this Dr. Praeger’s Partytime Hash Brown Sliders recipe could become a big winner on game day or even any day. It might even become your new favorite brunch dish.
