I created this recipe for Sweet and Smoky Juicy Lucy BBQ Sliders for the Budweiser Sauces Ultimate Blogger Recipe Challenge. I received complimentary product to do so, however the opinions are mine alone.
I had never heard of a Juicy Lucy until talking to my best friend one day about grilling out burgers. You don’t know what they are either? Well, my BFF lives outside Minneapolis and the Juicy Lucy is Minneapolis’s claim to fame, along with the musician Prince, of course. When I started thinking about a second recipe to use the Budweiser Brewmaster’s Premium Sweet and Smoky Sauce, I couldn’t get a Juicy Lucy out of my head. When I started bouncing ideas off of my 13 year old son, we came up with this recipe.
This was my first attempt at a Juicy Lucy. I wanted a cheese that I knew would melt well. I picked a Vermont white Cheddar. Provolone cubes would be another good choice because it also melts well. These delicious sliders make the perfect game day snack, movie night food, easy lunch or dinner. If you have teenage boys and their friends like to hang out at your house, double or even triple, the recipe. You know how hungry teenagers can be!
