1/3 cup mayo
1 teaspoon sriracha hot sauce

Quick Boss Sauce
1 cup mayo
1/4 cup ketchup
1 Tbs yellow mustard
1 1/2 Tbs sweet relish
1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp each black pepper and garlic powder
small jar of pitted kalamata (check for pits)
small jar of green olives drained (checked for pits)
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes re-hydrated in hot water for 10 minutes and roughly chopped
1 clove garlic minced
2 teaspoons lemon juice
Place all ingredients into food processor and process to a paste.
Use chicken tender cuts for the chicken sliders. These are smaller cuts and are easier to portion to fit the slider buns.
Use 2-3 oz. burger patties for the mini burger sliders. The patties should be cooked in a non-stick fry pan (or grill) for about 1 minute on each side.
Use small Portobello caps. Drizzle with oil on each side and roast in the oven for 6-8 minutes at 350 degrees. This can be done ahead of time. When ready to serve, place in a frying pan (or grill) for 1 minute each side.
When preparing the roasted red pepper aioli, be sure to strain the peppers well. If not, the sauce will be very watery.
Make your patties thinner and larger in circumference than you think you might need to. They will shrink and plump up as they cook.
If you are cooking the sliders inside, make sure you use a non-stick pan to avoid any sticking!
