In case you haven’t heard, sliders (mini burgers served on mini buns) are all the rage in restaurants these days.

Ingredients

reduced calorie mayonnaise

¼ cup(s)

apple cider vinegar

1½ tsp

celery seed

1 tsp

uncooked broccoli

10 oz, slaw variety

uncooked 93% lean ground beef

1 pound(s)

table salt

½ tsp

black pepper

¼ tsp

mixed grain bread

16 slice(s), (3-inch round or square)

Instructions

  1. Spray the grill rack with nonstick spray. Preheat the grill to high or prepare a hot fire.
  2. To make the slaw, whisk together the mayonnaise, vinegar, and celery seeds in a medium bowl. Add the broccoli slaw and toss to coat.
  3. With damp hands, shape the beef into 8 (1/2-inch-thick) patties. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Spray the bread on both sides with olive oil nonstick spray.
  4. Place the patties on the grill rack and grill until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the side of a burger registers 160°F for well done, about 5 minutes on each side. After the burgers have cooked for 4 minutes, put the bread on the grill rack and grill until browned and crispy, about 3 minutes on each side. Place a burger on each of 8 slices of bread and top evenly with the slaw. Cover with the remaining slices of bread. Yields 2 sliders per serving.

Notes

The burgers are small enough so that a serving is usually two or three of them. Their popularity is probably due to the fact that they are simply more fun to eat than a large burger.
