Spicy Beef Sliders with Sour Cream & Spring Onion Sauce

I love sliders, you get all the flavour of a good regular sized burger in a few mouthfuls! They are great for a party (just multiply ingredients as you need to) or just a family Saturday night in. Use your favourite chilli powder whether it be mild or hot & adjust the amount accordingly.

The Sour Cream sauce is a nice contrast to the spicy sliders!

If you can't find small snack rolls buy a pack of bridge/hot dog rolls & cut them in half.


Serves 4 Approx 57p per person & £1.15 for about 200ml of sauce

Prep time (inc sauce) 20 minutes Cooking time 12 minutes

Level 🍴🍴



  • 500g beef mince
  • 1 tbsp dried breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp chilli powder (or less if hot)
  • 1 tsp dried coriander
  • 1 ts garlic powder (or 1 crushed clove of garlic)
  • 1/2 tsp mustard powder (if you have it)
  • salt & pepper

For the sauce:

  • 150ml pot Sour cream
  • 50g plain cream cheese
  • 1/2 bunch spring onions, finely chopped (don't worry if you have a few bigger bits, it's great for texture!)
  • pinch of salt & pepper

To serve:

  • 8 snack rolls

Place the mince into a large bowl & add the breadcrumbs, chilli powder, garlic powder (or crushed garlic), coriander, mustard powder & salt & pepper.

Mix well with your hands, you may want to wear some plastic gloves for this to avoid getting chilli on your hands!

Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions then shape each one into a small burger. You can use a ramekin to help mould it into shape if you like.

Place the sliders on to a plate or tray, cover with cling film & pop them in the fridge for about an hour to firm up.

Meanwhile, make the sauce.

Place the cream cheese into a bowl & beat with a fork until soft. Add the sour cream & mix until smooth. Season with a pinch of salt & a good grind of black pepper then add the chopped spring onions. Mix until combined. Either transfer to a container with a lid or cover the bowl with cling film & place in the fridge until ready to serve.

Remove the sliders from the fridge & pre-heat the oven to 180 Fan/Gas 6/200C.

Place the sliders on to a greased baking tray & cook in the oven for 12 minutes turning halfway through cooking.

To serve, split the rolls & place a slider in each one. Put the sauce on the table so everyone can help themselves.

You could serve these with your "Straight from the freezer oven chips"!! (see Time Savers)
