Mini Cheeseburgers


Use your broiler instead of the outdoor grill to make these cheeseburger sliders and get your summer fix any time of year.


  • 1 pound ground beef chuck (95 percent lean)

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 8 slices cheddar (2 ounces)

  • 8 whole-wheat dinner rolls, split and lightly toasted

  • 1 cup shredded romaine lettuce

  • 1 medium tomato, thinly sliced

  • 16 dill pickle chips

  • 3 tablespoons mustard


  1. Heat broiler, with rack in top position. Divide beef into 8 balls. Press each lightly to form 1/2-inch-thick patties and season both sides with salt and pepper. Broil patties about 5 minutes for medium. Remove from oven and top each with a cheese slice. Broil until cheese melts, about 1 minute.

  2. Serve burgers on rolls with lettuce, tomato, pickles, and mustard.
