The cool thing about sliders is that they’re small, which gives you the perfect excuse to eat three or four or 12 burgers and not feel bad about it. Not that you should bad about eating 12 regular-sized burgers in one sitting. Actually, I take that back – you probably should feel bad about that.
Today’s recipe is for sloppy joe sliders, which combine the tiny joy of sliders with the awesomeness of sloppy joes. USELESS FACT: In Australia, “sloppy joe” is a colloquial term for a light cotton jacket or sweater. EXAMPLE: “G’day mate. Have you seen my sloppy joe? I seem to have misplaced it when I was wranglin’ that croc!”
