Spicy Italian Sausage Sliders

These Mino Prime Spicy Italian Sausage sliders are a must try! When @forkmylifechi sent me this recipe I was skeptical but the results were out of this world. This recipe is fast and easy, the only effort lies in squeezing the sausage out of the casing. There is a full tutorial on Chef Morgan Berringtons’ instagram page. I have been working with Morgan for a few months and we have had some amazing collaborations. I love her ability to turn simple into extraordinary, in this case she took our spicy Italian sausage into an insanely tasty slider your whole family will love. Just a tip, use the Burrata Mozzarella, it elevates the dish, especially if you are serving these to a crowd. Enjoy!

Italian Sausage Sliders Recipe 

Makes 6-7 sliders 

Prep Time: 10 minutes 

Cook Time: 15 minutes 


  • 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped 
  • 3 tbsp butter, unsalted 
  • 1 tsp dried parsley 
  • 1 pound @minoprime Hot Italian Sausage 
  • ½ cup Rao’s tomato sauce (or your favorite brand), plus more for serving 
  • 3 ounces mozzarella or burrata 
  • 6-7 slider buns (I love Martin’s potato slider buns) 
  • 7-8 basil leaves 
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper 


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. 
  2. In a small saucepot, combine chopped garlic, butter, dried parsley and a pinch or two of salt. Turn the heat on low. Let the butter and garlic simmer for a few minutes until fragrant–do not let the butter get brown. Set aside. 
  3. In a medium bowl, remove the casing from the hot Italian sausage. Using your hand form the sausage into small patties – about 2¼ ounces each  
  4. Heat a large skillet or cast-iron pan over medium-high heat. Add the sausage patties and cook on one side for 2 minutes, flip and cook on the other side for 2 minutes. 
  5. Top sausage patties with tomato sauce and mozzarella. Add a splash of water to the pan and cover with a lid to melt the cheese. If using burrata, add tomato sauce and a splash of water to the pan and cover to heat up tomato sauce. Once hot, remove the sausage sliders and then add the burrata. 
  6. While the sausage is cooking, brush the potato slider buns with the garlic butter and toast in the oven for 3-4 minutes. 
  7. Place sausage patties on the slider buns and top with fresh basil and serve!
