Kalamazoo Grills have served these sliders to happy crowds all over the country, especially in burger-crazy Los Angeles. They are so well-received they have become our go-to protein at just about every grill demonstration and customer party. We figured it’s about time to share the recipe with all of you.

Why do we do “sliders” instead of “burgers?” I think the perfect burger requires a rather specific thickness. On a full-sized bun, it requires about a half-pound patty, but on a slider bun, it only requires a quarter-pound patty – a much more reasonably-sized indulgence!
