Sliders, in Brussels sprout form?! Grainy mustard, marinated tempeh, and most importantly, roasted Brussels sprout buns…how clever!
I stumbled upon a version of this recipe over on the New York Times a few years back, and quickly decided it was Friendsgiving material.
Upon bringing the sliders to a holiday gathering of friends, I was quickly welcomed with similar enthusiasm to that which I held upon hearing of the idea.
“Brussels sprout buns? Genius!”
The plate of sliders was empty almost immediately, and I was both happy (recipe success!) and sad (all that effort gone in a snap!), but mostly happy with how well these turned out.
The recipe was destined for a repeat.
This year, when I was brainstorming what to make for my family’s Thanksgiving, I decided to pull this recipe out of the archives.
Once again, the sliders were an instant hit at the Thanksgiving table and gone long before we sat down to feast. (Although I admit, at least a few of them in went into my stomach before transporting from my kitchen to my sisters.)
I’m sharing this recipe with you now to bookmark for your next holiday feast — whether it’s a Christmas dinner, a New Year’s Eve dinner party, or anything else in between.
These are hands-down delicious. They do take a bit of tedious assembly. However, it’s certainly worth it when you look at the end result — so cute and so tasty, a double win!
