Shrunken Head Cheesy Sliders with Grilled Tape Worms and Alien Fingers!

  • 1 pound lean ground beef, 80/20
  • 1/2 pound Italian sausage, ground
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Steak sauce
  • Cajun seasoning
  • Cheese
  • Steamed or grilled onions
  • Lettuce
  • Sliced pickles

Directions: Combine the beef and ground Italian sausage in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.

Form into equally sized meatballs about the size of a golf ball. Next, flatten each ball while pinching one side into a thinner piece forming a skeleton head type of shape.

Next, season each side with a light brushing of steak sauce and a few dashes of Cajun seasoning.

Grill, bake or broil as you normally would. Use tiny slices of cheese for x’s representing stitched eyes and for the mouth. I used pepper jack. Serve hot on toasted slider buns covered in cheese with zombie sauce, steamed onion slices and gherkin pickle wedges. Serve open faced.
