Bravo to Marc Ippoliti in West Chester, PA for submitting his Dizzy Pumpkin Sliders recipe to Outdora’s original BGE recipe contest. Fall is here and pumpkins reign. What better way to celebrate the season than by firing up Marc’s recipe on your Big Green Egg. “Dizzy Pumpkin Sliders” is just an abbreviated way of saying “ground chuck sliders over pineapple-headed butter grill fried pumpkin gnocco-buns”. According to Marc, “Two-tone dizzy spices work well, the sweetness of the pumpkin and caramelized pineapple head crust on the ‘bun’ followed by the savory peppery-ness of the chuck burger, wed by cheese, all I can say is it tastes like buttery meat candy.” Marc recommends serving the Dizzy Pumpkin Sliders with beer.
