There is almost nothing that isn't improved with Drunken Goat. I often put it in quesadillas or top pizzas with a few thin slices. Some crostini with Drunken Goat is an excellent appetizer; add some chorizo and a glass of Temperanillo and it's a meal in itself.
I decided to make sliders with Drunken Goat. I got some small potato rolls from Bristol Farms, which have become the only acceptable choice for making sliders these days, and some patties from Trader Joe's. This time, I smashed the patties down and grilled them for a few minutes, then stuck a slice of Drunken Goat between two patties and cooked them for a couple minutes more, just enough to melt the cheese.
I wanted some kind of condiment with a bit of tang to play against the smoothness of the cheese. E. Waldo Ward's mustard relish fit the bill perfectly. E. Waldo Ward's products have the trifecta I love most about foods: they are delicious, they have been made locally for over 100 years, and Huell Howser has featured them. You could not ask for anything more.
The mustard relish has mustard and pickles, obviously, but also a little horseradish and pickled watermelon rind. After I took the patties off the grill and placed them on the buns, I added a slice of pickle to each and topped it with a dollop of the mustard relish. They were, without question, my favorite sliders I have ever made.
