|The recipe, submitted by Lisa Keys, of Middlebury, Conn., took second place in our 2008 Grilling Contest. The idea for these sliders was inspired by the Cuban sandwiches she and her husband tasted while on vacation in Tampa. She first made them for her Bunco group of about a dozen friends. "My friends really enjoyed the spicy goodness of these little burgers," said Lisa. So did the Cabin Life judges!|
