Sliders for Dinner

Last night it was just Hubby and me for dinner.  We've had a hectic week. I know, your week has been hectic, too.  That's why this dinner suggestion is perfect for all of us.  Sliders...

Sliders for Dinner
Sliders, you ask?  That's so last year...

OK.  Come on...  Last year... this year... do you really care what year?  I'm just saying that when you need a quick and easy dinner, sliders can be a fun answer.  We all need a little fun in our dinner once in a while, don't we?  And sliders are both kid and adult friendly.  What's better than that?

I must admit that sliders were not part of the original dinner plan.  Well, to be perfectly honest there was no plan.  There was a trip to the grocery store looking for inspiration.  Inspiration came in the form of sliders.  Yes, cheddar and bacon sliders to be exact. 

Do I have your interest yet?

Cheddar Bacon Sliders for Two
Making Sliders
  • 6 pre-made cheddar bacon sliders
  • 6 slices chive cheddar cheese, or the cheese of your choice
  • 6 slices of  red onion, sliced very thin
  • 12 slices French baguette, buttered
  • barbecue sauce, your favorite

Buy premade sliders or make your own.  Preheat your grill. 

Slice the baguette into 12 rounds.  Butter one side and toast the rounds on your grill.

Toast Baguette Slices
Grill the sliders, approximately 4 minutes each side.  After you flip the sliders, baste with your favorite barbecue sauce, layer with sliced onion and cheese.  Cook until cheese melts.
Mmm, Grilled Sliders
Remove from the grill and place on the toasted baguette.  Serve with your favorite sides.  We chose a tossed green salad and our favorite tomato salad. 

Sliders and Salad
 Oh, so good...

Tonight, make some sliders.  You'll be glad you did!
