There’s a lot of options when it comes to entertaining, and you can go as relaxed or elaborate as you feel. Looking for something to serve at your party that can be ready in under an hour and still bring the “Ahs” ? Try our elevated version of a classic slider topped with bacon jam and blue cheese for some steakhouse level happiness cozied between two buns. Let the envy begin!
Perfect with a big bold Washington Cabernet Sauvignon based red blend, this is a showstopper of an appetizer to go with a showstopper of a wine. Washington red wines are noted for the ample structure and tannin, well developed dark fruit character, and acidity. Great characters for aging that also create a memorable food pairing with this dish. Start with the black pepper and savory seasonings (Worcestershire, soy, mustard) in the sliders that complement the savory elements of a Cabernet-driven blend and enhance the fruitiness of the wine. Bold flavors of blue cheese and bacon jam further enrich the meaty slider as well as a full-bodied red wine.
Our club selection, the Passing Time 2018 Columbia Valley Red Wine is unforgettable (admittedly with or without the slider!) Plush and full bodied, the black and blue fruit flavors of the wine enhance the herbal, spicy character of the sliders while the new French oak profile complements the smoky savory flavors of the bacon jam.
