Cooking with Caitlin: Hold onto the taste of summer with this 'slaw burger' recipe

CINCINNATI - WCPO is pleased to bring you food blogger Caitlin MacEachen Steininger, of Cooking with Caitlin, as a contributor. She has been tickling the food fancy of her family and friends since third grade. Check back next Monday for a new recipe!

From Terry’s Turf Club to Quatman’s Café – with a slew of Zip Burgers in between – we have eaten our way through the Cincinnati burger scene many, many times. As Queen City natives, we knew great burgers long before they were a trend. And we are most grateful for our beefy education.

We always crave the aforementioned classics, and we relish burgers from our own backyards too. Here is our favorite homemade recipe--made extra special with a melty center and crunchy slaw topper. With just a couple twists on traditional, it’s an easy way to grill gourmet into the every day.

Tweak this burger to your tastes by tailoring the slaw, mixing up the cheese, and playing with the colorful variety of tomatoes available right now. 

Be thoughtful about the bread too. For sliders in particular, seek out buttery dinner rolls or soft Hawaiian buns for optimum texture and flavor. We are loyal to Servatii’s knots, but their Parkerhouse rolls are to-die-for delicious too.
