If you don’t know, you can find a holiday for just about every day of the year. According to one of the lists I discovered, today has the all important holiday title of Lazy Day. Yep. August 10 is Lazy Day. So on a day when you’re practically told to be a couch potato, what do you cook?
My first thought was making burger sliders for dinner. Since I’ve been craving tacos since last Friday, I chose to save the beef and eat some Jack Daniel’s Barbecue Pork sliders and broccoli. Such an easy and lazy approved meal when the most exertion is poking holes in the meat package and setting the microwave for 2-3 minutes. I’m not regretting my dinner choice today, but I’m feeling like easy burgers need the love today too. So in honor of my first choice, I’m sharing my very simple way of making burger sliders.
These burgers are an easy-to-make weekly dinner option. If my meat has been in the freezer then I’ll set it in hot water about an hour or so before I’m going to begin making them. (I don’t know why but I really don’t like thawing food in the microwave.) Pair the seasoned burgers with Hawaiian Bread slider buns, a scoop (or three) of mac and cheese, and a vegetable of your choice and dinner is served! I’m not an experienced cook so these burgers are about as basic as you can get, there’s no secret sauce, even if our condiments range from mayo and honey mustard to your basic trinity of mayo, ketchup, and mustard, but they’re still a hit in our house. Maybe they’ll be a hit in yours, too. Happy Eating!
- 1 lb Ground Beef

- Rub seasoning on both sides of patty
- Place on a heated George Foreman or similar grill and cook for the allotted time
