I am delighted to welcome Marla from Organic Life On A Budget to our contributing team. What a way to make her entrance with these delicious pork sliders!
I developed this recipe for pork sliders when trying to think of a new type of Easter dinner. Sometimes you just want to eat something a little bit different!
I don’t know about you, but in my family we always like trying something new with our holiday dinners, and Easter is no exception.
Several years ago we broke away from the traditional ham and devilled eggs, and started a tradition of trying a new meal at each holiday.
I thought this Easter would be a great time to try these pork sliders. This is a budget-friendly, healthier alternative to the traditional ham dinner.
These pork sliders are so quick and easy to prepare. You just sear the medallions, then pop them into the oven to finish cooking.
I use a large baking sheet, that would easily fit 30+ medallions. This allows the recipe to be easily adaptable.
Sliders are perfect for either a small group or you can feed an army without spending much more time in the kitchen.
The holidays are all about family and coming together for a nice meal, and Easter is no different. This meal makes it easy to entertain without spending all of your time in the kitchen.
What Can Be Served With Pork Sliders?
Pork sliders are such a versatile meal. They can either be eaten on their own or made into a bigger meal with a side dish.
Side dish ideas include:
For Easter, I served the pork sliders with a roasted potato salad.
The potato salad is such a simple, yet delicious homemade dish that nicely complements the pork. Roasting the potatoes gives them such a rich flavor, that all you have to do is toss them in olive oil and add a few chives, then you have a perfect side dish.
What Toppings Do You Put On A Pork Sandwich?
Pork sliders don’t need to be eaten with a side dish and are great to be eaten on their own.
I like to serve with a roasted garlic gravy, but they are lots of alternatives to choose from.
Some great suggestions include:
- Horseradish sauce. Horseradish is a great pairing to pork, so this would work really well.
- For a simpler taste, you can’t beat a good coleslaw recipe. The flavors packed into coleslaw work beautifully with pork. A coleslaw is also generally a favorite topping for the kids.
