Maybe it’s the heat, or the lack of routine, or the exhausting task of keeping the kids occupied all day (or probably a combination of all three!), but whatever the reason, there are a lot of times when I don’t feel like cooking much in the summer. I either prepare meals earlier in the day while I still have the energy, or I make a quick and easy dinner.
These sliders are perfect for those summer days when I’m feeling lazy and I don’t want to fuss with dinner. I also don’t want to hear the kids whine about what’s for dinner. Thankfully, it’s often the easiest meals that are the biggest kid-pleasers.
A big thumbs-up from everyone for this meal! I chopped up everything for Ayla, because it’s a little hard for a toddler to eat a whole slider. The boys assembled their own (Bonus! Even less work for me!) and gobbled them up.
I used pre-made chicken nuggets for the slider patties, but if you happen to have some homemade chicken nuggets (like these Quinoa Chicken Nuggets) stored in your freezer, this is a great opportunity to use them. I didn’t have any slider buns, but I found that cutting up hot dog buns works perfectly.
Serve the sliders with fresh veggies, and you’ll have dinner ready in no time. That means more time for relaxing on your patio and enjoying the summer.
