To take the drudgery out of dinnertime, or even guests coming over, serve a board! It’s what we call “food happiness,” because you can get a little artsy and make food so beautiful.

These sliders are super easy to put together, and are always a hit at every gathering, or even for a tailgate party! Make ahead (keep wrapped in foil) and assemble right before eating. Definitely the meat can also be made ahead of time in preparation for your gathering.

Bringing people together

The idea of serving up a board has to do with the connecting done around the table. I always tag in my Instagram, “bringing people together.”

It’s fun to have some fun with a meal!

How to make the mini burgers

Place meat mixture on a large, parchment-lined baking sheet; shape into two, 6×8-in. rectangles, each about 1/2-inch thick.

Meanwhile, without separating rolls, cut them in half horizontally. Spread Thousand Island dressing evenly over bottom halves of rolls (optional). Lay down the lettuce leaves.

Place meat on bottom halves of rolls; spread with remaining 1/4 cup dressing (optional). Replace with top halves of rolls.

How to serve a board meal

Serve breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner on a board. The idea with my boards is that you can pack them with food, and not worry about the food falling off. Whereas, if you use a flat board – get ready for a big mess.

  • Take them to a party
  • Make them for dinner
  • Serve them on game day
  • Set them out for a children’s birthday party

There are so many ideas and toppings that you can add to a board. This time we added watermelon, cherries, and all the delicious toppings like mustard, pickles, ketchup, onions, etc.

ENJOY!

Mini Burger Slider Board

Makes 12 sliders

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 white minced onion, divided
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package, 17 ounces dinner rolls
  • 1/2 cup Marie’s Thousand Island Salad Dressing, divided
  • 3-4 slices Tillamook Sharp Cheddar Cheese, divided into squares

Condiments:

  • 8-10 large Iceberg lettuce leaves
  • 4 small tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup pickle slices
  • 1/2 cup yellow mustard
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • Cherries
  • Strawberries

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450°. In a large bowl, mix beef, eggs, minced onion, garlic powder, salt and pepper just until combined; do not overmix. Place meat mixture on a large, parchment-lined baking sheet; shape into two, 6x8-in. rectangles, each about 1/2-inch thick. Bake 8-10 minutes. Turn the oven down to 350° and bake an additional 8-10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, without separating rolls, cut them in half horizontally. Spread Thousand Island dressing evenly over bottom halves of rolls (optional). Lay down the lettuce leaves.
  • Blot meat with paper towels to remove excess fat; top meat with cheese, and return that portion of the buns/meat/cheese to oven. Bake until cheese has just melted, 2-3 minutes.
  • Place meat on bottom halves of rolls; spread with remaining 1/4 cup dressing (optional). Replace with top halves of rolls.
  • Gently cut the sliders so they are easy to pick up.
  • Allow guests to add their own sauces, red onions, pickles, and tomatoes.
  • Separate into 2 sections/plates and place on the board.
  • Fill small bowls with mustard, ketchup, pickles, and special sauce. Set on the board.
  • In the center, add a big bowl of watermelon.
  • Lay down the remaining condiments, and fill in open areas with cherries and strawberries.

Notes

TIP: Build the board, set out the plates on the board, and add the hot sliders right before serving, to ensure sliders are hot!
