The Lazy Man's Garlic Cheeseburger Sliders

We have all been sick the last few days--the kids are feeling better but I am not (yet).  I am still wanting soups with lots of garlic but the kidlets are ready for some "real" food so I added extra garlic to dinner so we were all happy ;)

I have a confession--I HATE hate hate hate touching raw meat.  Hate it.  So when the kids were wanting cheeseburgers, I needed to find a way to not actually touch the ground beef ;)  And so was born The Lazy Man's Garlic Cheeseburger Sliders.

S thought it was fun to help make these :)  First step, we browned up some ground beef with some garlic, onion, and cumin.  Once it was done, we layered the bottom half of some slider buns in a glass baking dish:

Then we whipped up a little flavored mayo--garlic, paprika, and a little cumin.  S normally does NOT like mayo and will not eat things made with mayo unless he is really hungry but he thought this mayo was delicious and would be willing to eat it on sandwiches :p We spread a bit on the buns:

Then we layered the ground beef and some shredded cheddar blend cheese on top:

We added the top layer of the slider buns and then adorned them with some garlic butter (melted butter, garlic, and parsley).  S was excited by the parsley because "the green stuff is what makes garlic bread so good!" LOL

We popped it in the oven at 350 degrees for about twenty minutes--when the bread was toasty we pulled them out.  I dished out seconds to everyone so that automatically makes them a hit :)  S even went back after evening chores and ate thirds :)  Now, we have two slightly different pictures--the first one shows how nice and toasty the tops got but S said that since you couldn't really see the "green stuff" on top, I needed to take one with the flash :p
