Old Fashioned Sliders

Everything tastes better when it's MINI!  These are a major hit at my house. They have that authentic flavor, but with added deliciousness of good quality beef, buns & cheese.

1 package of dinner rolls (12 per pack) - I pay $1.69 for them at Aldi. They are AWESOME too.
1 lb of ground beef (tonight's was free from our friends who got a side of beef)
Burger or Steak Seasoning (or salt/pepper)
American Cheese - I buy the Kraft singles at Sam's Club
Dill Hamburger Slice Pickles
Sweet or Red Onion

Lay out a large piece of plastic wrap. Scoop out 12 even balls of meat (it will use the whole pound & make 12 burgers) onto the plastic. Cover with another piece of plastic & use a baking sheet to press them down evenly.

Remove the plastic & sprinkle on some seasoning (burger, steak or s&p)...place the plastic wrap back on the burgers and press the seasoning into the meat.

Heat up a skillet on medium heat. Place your little burgers in there & let 'em start to cook up.

In the mean time, slice the dinner rolls and take the tops off. Give each top a dab of ketchup (I'm not a huge fan of ketchup, but it works on these well) & mustard. Put 2 pickles on each top. Slice some thin slices of onion & place on the pickles. (the onion is necessary as are the pickles...they really give them that "authentic" flavor)

Flip the burgers and let them cook a minute more. Top each burger with 2 small squares of cheese. Cover the skillet for a minute so the cheese can melt. Then just pop them onto the bottom halves of the rolls and flip them up onto the top halves and turn right side up. DONE!!!! 

You can put lettuce or tomato on it, but we don't. They are perfect just like this.
I'm saying "delicious" with my eyes in case you couldn't tell.

I agree everything tastes better when it's mini. I will have to make these at home for T.

I made these sliders tonight for the whole family. I have a difficult time finding things that will please us and my 2 1/2 year old triplets. Well these were wonderful! A crowd pleaser!
