White Castle was always a mystery to our family. It’s literally the only fast food chain we never stepped foot inside. But the sliders there always got so much attention…
Sliders, or mini burgers, have portion control built right in. The good news about our version of these sliders is that they’re also made using homemade BBQ sauce.
Most BBQ sauces at the store are totally loaded with sugar. It’s almost like pouring liquid pixie sticks down your throat (yuck!), not to mention all the additives and preservatives they use to extend the shelf life of their mixes.
You can make these mini burgers using beef or turkey meat, but we opted for turkey since it’s a bit leaner and slightly more affordable.
These sliders are a great game day option! To make them even cleaner, skip the bun altogether and serve them on a bed of lettuce instead! Add whatever veggie toppings you like, if that’s your thing. 😉

- Top burgers with remaining BBQ sauce and bake for 25-30 minutes.
