Rated 5 out of 5 by from A New Favorite in our House! This was a huge hit in my house. Everyone in my family has asked for these again and again. Be warned, if you make these sliders now, you will be making it frequently all summer long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing My entire family loved these burgers!! We made regular burgers instead of sliders and I used Roasted onion starter in the burgers and then the BBQ on top with some cheese.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for busy families and super delicious! I prepped these burgers, as whole burgers and wrapped them individually. This way when it was just me and the kids I only took out 3 to defrost and cook, instead of all 6. So for us this was 2 meals for our family. The next time I will double to make more burgers because great for busy cheer practice nights!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just a sample, but mighty fine. I'm focusing on getting my freezer stocked with ready to go meals. So simple to assemble and the flavor was great. I made a mini version so I could give a fair review of the flavor. They were moist and a little bit sweet. Can hardly wait to have them with all the fixings. Takes a burger to a whole new level.
