I did not make this recipe, but saw this in the Kid Friendly Wedding Ideas article. I will say we did have mini slider cheesburgers as part of a kids menu at our wedding which was in a boutique hotel, as part of a kids menu (personal pizza, chicken nuggets, or sliders) and they were a HUGE hit and even the adults were envious so I recommend this idea and this recipe looks like it'd be a good one to use for that!

These were great! There's not anything difficult or fancy about them, but they were fun, simple to make, and the kids loved them. Then the dad's finished off the leftovers :) I did broil them in the last few minutes of cooking to crisp them up like a grill would do.

my family loved these. the recipe was easy and straight-forward, the only thing that i would change is that they didn't need to be cooked as long as it said, but thats probly my oven. I will definately make these again!

Great dish for a family with kids. The teens and tweens loved them. Cooking time was longer than the recipe stated, but ovens vary. Would make it again. Served with steamed baby carrots. A hit.

Very tasty, easy and love that they can be frozen! I use these for my 2-year-old as a quick dinner when I'm serving something (spicy) he won't eat with my husband and me. Great to have on hand for quick lunches &/or dinners.

My nine year old son loved these. I made twelve burgers and cooked four them for twenty minutes, freezing the rest for a later date. I will make these again.
