Easy Beef Sliders

My kids love burgers, especially my son. It’s one of the best ways to reward (or bribe) him for good behaviour.

I have a way of fast tracking burger making without having to handle mince and make up the burger patties.

The filling for these beef sliders is grated cheese, mayo, seasoned beef mince, more cheese and mayo.

The buns are heated in the oven until the slider buns are heated through and the cheese is melted and gooey.

I think the best bit about this recipe is the gooey melted cheese but if you’re like my husband, and don’t like cheese, then you could remove a layer or don’t use it at all.

I love these sliders with caramelized onions in them and I’ve included the method for this down below but don’t feel obliged to add this extra bit if you want to save yourself an extra step.

Admittedly, it’s not a true burger; there is no lettuce or raw vegetables in these sliders but you could certainly serve them with a side salad and chips (fries).
