Simply prepare your grill for high heat cooking (450+ degrees), from Snake River Farms ground beef in to patties that are approximately ½ inch wider than the slider buns to allow for shrinkage, season liberally with Kosher salt and ground black pepper, then grill for 3-4 minutes per side until they reach an internal temperature of 130 degrees for medium-rare.
