These sliders use crescent rolls and ketchup with a spicy kick for a fun twist on traditional burgers. Using crescent roll dough and a biscuit cutter (or a glass, if need be) let’s you customize the buns to the exact size you need for the patties. Sprinkle the dough with garlic powder or dried herbs before you put them in the oven for another layer of flavor. The burgers are made with lean ground beef that’s seasoned with a mix of salt, paprika, and garlic powder. Mix the patties with your hands just until combined so they will stay as tender as possible.


Crescent roll dough

4 oz

All-purpose flour

2 tsp, for rolling out dough

Table salt

¾ tsp, divided (or to taste)


¼ tsp

Garlic powder

¼ tsp

Uncooked 93% lean ground beef

1 pound(s)

Cooking spray

4 spray(s)


10 tsp

Chili powder

tsp, chipotle-variety

Hamburger pickle chips

20 chip(s)


  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Unroll dough and form into a ball; roll dough into a thin sheet on a lightly floured surface. Cut 10 (2 ½-inch) circles from dough, collecting scraps and rerolling dough as needed. Place circles on a nonstick baking sheet and sprinkle with 1/4 tsp salt (and optional seasonings of your choice); bake until golden, about 8 minutes. Remove from pan; cool on a wire rack. Slice cooled rolls in half to make 10 tops and 10 bottoms.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare sliders. In a medium mixing bowl, combine remaining 1/2 tsp salt, paprika, and garlic powder. Add beef and gently knead to combine; divide into 10 portions. Flatten each portion into a 2 ½-inch patty, about ½-inch thick.
  4. Coat a large stovetop grill pan with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Arrange burgers on pan, making sure not to crowd them; cook until well-browned on bottom, about 6- 8 minutes. Flip burgers; cook until meat is cooked through, about 4 minutes more.
  5. To serve, stir together ketchup and chili powder in a small bowl. Serve burgers on rolls, each spread with 1 tsp ketchup mixture; top each with 2 pickles (and any other zero Point toppings such as sliced onion, sliced tomato, and lettuce).
