Sliders are a popular appetizer on restaurant menus. They are so small that typically two or three of them constitute a single serving. Their popularity is likely due to the fact that tiny foods are just fun to make and eat, but their name is said to have originated in the mess halls of the U.S. Navy almost a century ago. Sailors said they were so small and greasy that they would slide right down and the name sliders stuck. We promise there is nothing greasy about these healthy sliders. They are made with lean beef topped with a heap of crunchy broccoli slaw, so your can rest assured they will slide right down out of sheer deliciousness.


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)


  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.
