Ingredients

2 1/4 pounds 90% lean ground beef (such as sirloin)

1 large onion, roughly chopped

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

36 slider buns, split

Dill pickle slices, ketchup and mustard, for topping

Directions

  1. Form the meat into 36 golf ball-size balls. Pulse the onion in a food processor until finely chopped.
  2. Heat a cast-iron skillet over high heat. Working in batches, add the meatballs to the skillet and smash them very flat with a spatula. Season with salt and pepper, then sprinkle the onion over the patties. Cook 1 minute, then flip and smash the burgers with the spatula again. Cook 1 more minute for well done; place both halves of the buns on top of the patties to steam for the last few seconds of cooking.
  3. Serve the burgers on the buns; top with pickles, ketchup and mustard.
