Sliders with Shallot-Dijon Relish

Baby burgers aren’t just for appetizers; they are the ideal size for pint-sized diners. If your children prefer the standard embellishments, top theirs with low-fat cheese, lettuce, and pickles. Sliders are an ideal way to keep calories in check—these baby burgers have less than 175 calories each. Use ground sirloin or 90/10 lean ground beef to keep the total fat low.

Parents, bring sophisticated flavor to a casual adult get-together by serving the Shallot-Dijon Relish on the appetizer-size burgers. For a heartier burger, make four servings instead of eight.
