Consider these magic little morsels the ideal party starter, bound to tie your family and friends over until the main event.
1 packet of Silver Fern Farms Venison Mince
30 gram Wild Fennel Co. venison seasoning
50 grams plain flour
200 grams firm blue cheese
pack of 8 slider buns
100 grams rocket
Pre-heat oven to 180ºc.
To begin, slice your slider buns and in a small bowl break the blue cheese up with a fork and put to one side.
Mix the Silver Fern Farms Venison Mince, Wild Fennel Co. venison seasoning, egg and the plain flour in a large bowl until fully mixed.
Divide the mixture into eight 50g meatballs and press into small burger patties.
Heat a non-stick pan with a little of the cooking oil until it is almost smoking. Caramelise the burger patties for 2 minutes on both sides then to finish put in the oven for a further 4 minutes.
While the venison patties are in the oven, lightly toast your slider buns then spread a generous amount of aioli on both sides.
To assemble: Take the venison from the oven and begin to assemble the sliders by placing a pattie on the base of the slider, topped with the broken down blue cheese, then a small handful of rocket and finish with the lid. Serves 4.
