I know, I know. You probably don’t want a reminder that summer is drawing to a close, and fall will soon be here. That is unless you’re like me, and have been counting down since the beginning of July! Summer is fast-paced and often hectic. Fall is my favorite season – it’s time to sink back into routines and get organized for the upcoming year.
I don’t know about you, but my meal plan goes out the window in the summer. Impromptu picnics or (gasp!) ice cream for dinner are more common than I would like to admit. And don’t even talk about turning on the oven!
Since fall and back-to-school time will soon be here, I’ve teamed up with Tyson Foods today to help you slide into fall routines. Fall routines, for me, means getting back into a meal plan routine. What better way to do this, than with an easy slider hack that works for any meal of the day? I’ve got one simple hack that will make sliders a low-prep, easy meal option.
I made a quick trip to my local Walmart for my slider essentials. I grabbed Tyson® Chicken Nuggets and Jimmy Dean® Fully Cooked Sausage Patties – they’re protein packed fridge and freezer essentials that help me get a meal on the table quickly.
The Easiest Way to Make Sliders
I’ve always thought of sliders as a high-maintenance meal option that is better in a restaurant. Why would I want to assemble three sandwiches, when I can just do one?
Well, set that thought aside! You can assemble once, and have 12 sliders in no time for your dinner table.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 12 small rolls
- Tyson® Chicken Nuggets – or other protein source, like pulled pork
- sauce of choice – I used marinara
- cheese of choice – I used mozzarella
Quick Slider Assembly
Cut your rolls in half, doing your best to keep the bottoms together. Set the tops aside.
Add your protein choice – I used chicken nuggets. I microwaved the chicken nuggets according to the package directions first.
Add your cheese slices.
Lightly top with sauce. I used marinara. Feel free to branch out. Try barbecue sauce!
Bake in a 350-degree oven for about 5 minutes. You just want to melt the cheese and lightly toast your rolls.
Separate with a sharp knife, and serve!
Perfect for Breakfast Too
Sliders aren’t just for dinner, you guys!
I used Jimmy Dean® Fully Cooked Sausage Patties (found in the refrigerator section) to make sausage, egg, and cheese breakfast sliders.
Use the same method as above to layer scrambled eggs (I used 9 large eggs + some milk), sausage patties, and cheddar cheese. Bake for 5 minutes at 350-degrees.
These breakfast sliders refrigerate well for a couple of days. I microwaved two this morning in a paper towel, and I ate them on my way to work!
