Forget the Good Morning Burger: The real hipness is deep fried sliders. That’s sliders as in White Castle cheeseburgers. A minor league team in Illinois, the Gateway Grizzlies, is selling the deep fried treats at their concession stands. A two-pack of the “Baseball’s Best Sliders” sells for $4, with cheese sauce costing $1 extra. This isn’t the Grizzlies’ first foray into fast food zaniness: The chain sold a “Baseball’s Best Burger”—a bacon cheeseburger that used a sliced Krispy Kreme donut for a bun—last year.
For the record, CNBC deems it “great” and like a “onion ring burger”. There’s even video.
Here in Philadelphia, we have our own hometown variation on the slider: Barclay Prime’s kobe beef slider.
