Andouille Blue Cheese Sliders with Easy Jack IPA Mustard Sauce

It is grilling season, and sliders are definitely at the top of the menu. But who wants another boring ground beef slider with ketchup and mustard? Not me, I want something unique and different with some heat. So, I whipped up a cajun-style slider with andouille sausage and Easy Jack IPA from Firestone Walker. Sandwich these sausage patties of love in a Hawaiian bun with a Creole mustard sauce and pickled okra…the recipe for success.
