Did someone say “Pork Sliders”?

10 Mar

So anyone who knows me knows that I have a serious obsession with pork.  I mean I can eat pork almost every day.  I know there are a lot of non pork eaters out there, but I am not apologizing.  I eat it pork and have no qualms about it.

So the other day I am on the food network website and I came across a recipe by the “Neelys”.  I mean all I had to do was read the title and I was already salivating.  My co-worker was right there to witness my excitement.  “Triple Pork Sliders”, everything about the recipe got me excited.  I mean who would think to combine ground pork, chorizo, and applewood smoked bacon?  My mouth was just watering, and then to top it off they had the nerve to throw in a recipe for smoked paprika mayonnaise.  Needless to say I couldn’t wait to get home to try this recipe.  After all, my freezer was already stocked with chorizo.  SMH I know I am a mess.  But I am not going to rant about this great recipe anymore, I will just share it with you.

Mmm take a bite out of that!
