makes 8-10 sliders


Make the sauce:

Heat the oil in a small saucepan over medium heat and add the onions with a pinch of salt. Cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the tomato paste and spices, and cook for 1 minute. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until thickened, 10-12 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Make the sliders:

In a large bowl, mix the ground meat with the shallot, breadcrumbs, and spices. Add ½ cup of smoked cheddar cheese to the slider mixture and mix until combined. Using your hands, form 2.5-3 inch patties and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high. Cook the patties for 4 minutes and flip. Place about 1 Tbs. of cheese on top of each patty, cover the skillet, and steam for 4-5 minutes until the cheese is melted and the meat is cooked through. Repeat with the remaining patties.

Place each slider on a bun. Top with the lingonberry ketchup and sliced red onion if desired.
