With summer drawing to a close, I am trying to take advantage of the days and get in some last summer activities. We have been swimming, spending more time outdoors and grilling. Last weekend, we had a low key family BBQ. I was able to go shopping at Lucky Super Market to pick up some items for our BBQ. Burgers are one of our favorite things to grill and I decided to mix it up this time by making Sliders on a Stick. My kids thought this was such a fun way to eat a burger. After all, food is more fun when it’s on a stick!
To have a later summer BBQ you will need:
- Hamburger buns
- Ground beef
- Sliced American cheese
- Burger Seasoning
Preheat the grill and get started preparing your sliders. Using the ground beef and your choice of burger seasonings, form your sliders. If you’ve made burgers before, just make mini versions of those and you’ve got sliders. When they are formed, toss them on the grill so they can start cooking. We grilled ours for 3 minutes on each side.
The kids can help make these while you are grilling your sliders. Obviously, you will want to make sure your child is old enough to work with a skewer. I cut up some watermelon and asked my daughter to make a pattern with the fruit on her stick. She happily helped me prepare the skewers.
They were a hit with my picky eaters!
I sliced up some more watermelon and prepared it to be grilled. If you’ve never had grilled watermelon before, you must try it. Brush both sides of the watermelon slices with some olive oil and apply salt and pepper.
Cut your hamburger buns into cubes and slice up your tomatoes, avocado and cheese. Now it’s time to start assembling your sliders. Push a cube of bun 3/4 down on a skewer. Next comes the mini burger, a square of cheese, slice of avocado, slice of tomato and another bun. Repeat.
These sliders on a stick are a fun way to present traditional BBQ food. Hopefully we will get a few more chances to grill before summer is over. If you have a BBQ coming up, you can pick up some Fresh Finds at Lucky Super Market. When you shop there you can opt to have a percentage of your purchases go to a charity of your choice. You can find Lucky on Twitter and Facebook.
