Under 30 Minutes: California Sliders


I absolutely love sliders which are mini bite-size hamburgers. They are perfect for appetizers, main dishes and especially the kids. I developed these California Sliders for Laura’s Lean Beef. They are a cinch to prepare and are so delicious topped with this homemade guacamole.
