Take Me Out To the Ball Game!!
by Mandy DeCecco

 

 

With the record breaking winter of 2010 on its way out, we can finally put away the snow shovels and ice melt and begin to look forward to some warmer temperatures and pleasant Spring weather. Ok, so maybe it won't always be pleasant, but April showers sure beat double digit snowfall amounts in my book. I think we could all use a good nine months without hearing the terms like "black ice," "wintery mix", and "bread-milk-eggs" being used in one sentence.
 
With the start of Spring we can also look forward to the new season of baseball. I am sure our Fightin' Phils were feeling sorry for us from sunny Clearwater as we suffered winter storm after winter storm. I'll bet they've been working their hardest to reward us with another great season of baseball. So now we can all look forward to switching off the stale reality T.V. programming that we've been surviving the winter on and tuning in to what promises to be another winning baseball season.
 
To help get the season into swing here are some baseball inspired recipes complied by the staff at the Philadelphia Catering Company. Our "Flyin' Hawaiian Pineapple-Habanero Hot Sauce" is the perfect condiment for burgers, fries or anything that could use some spicing up. "Home Plate Sliders" are a classic crowd pleaser and are great for groups that include children and adults. Customize your own, by substituting your favorite cheese and toppings.
 
So sports fans, put away the snow blower and fire up you're BBQ grills, good times are here again!
 
Home Plate Sliders
 
Ingredients
 

  • 2lbs ground beef (80 percent lean)

  •  
  • 3 TBSP olive oil

  •  
  • 1 TBSP Dijon mustard

  •  
  • 1 TBSP finely chopped garlic

  •  
  • 1 TSP chopped fresh thyme

  •  
  • 1 TSP kosher salt

  •  
  • 1 TSP freshly ground pepper

  •  
  • Cooking spray for grilling

  •  
  • 12 small rolls

  •  
  • Your choice of toppings: cheese, lettuce, red onion, hot peppers, mustard, ketchup, mayo

  •  
    Preparation
     
    Fire up your grill to medium-high heat. In a large bowl gently mix ground beef, olive oil, mustard, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper. Mix gently until combined - do not overly compress the ingredients. Shape mixture into 12 - 2 inch patties.
     
    Grill sliders for 4 approximately minutes on each side (or longer to desired wellness). Top with cheese in the remaining minutes of grilling. Toast sliced buns on grill. Enjoy with your choice of toppings.
