We’ve been spending a lot of time in the kitchen lately adding new recipes to our recipe box. Some have been new creations that I have concocted, some have not made it past the planning phase (Liz needs to reign me in sometimes) and some are new variations on old ideas. These Italian Sliders kinda fit into two of these groups. While they have been around for awhile, (I mean who hasn’t heard of sliders) we recently began experimenting with Angostura aromatic bitters in some recipes.

I’m still a novice when it comes to cooking, just ask Liz how often she has come to my rescue in the kitchen. And one thing that still amazes me is how the addition of the minutest ingredient can influence the complete taste profile of the dish. These Sliders are a prime example, the flavors simply explode when the Angostura aromatic bitters are added.

These are perfect for parties, tailgates and let’s not forget the Super Bowl. They grill up fast so it’s not a problem to keep the crowd satisfied. But I caution you to make a double batch… you won’t want to run out.
