Sliders with Spicy Ketchup are a tasty alternative to a full-size hamburger. Sliders are smaller versions of hamburgers that are topped with a spicy ketchup and relish. They are fun to make and eat!
Sliders with Spicy Ketchup are good to serve as a meal or a party snack. When I serve them as a meal, I like to serve them with Baked French Fries or Baked Sweet Potato Fries. Together, they make a yummy, filling meal. When serving as a party snack, a big bowl of chips pairs well with the sliders. If spicy ketchup and relish isn't your thing, then top with whatever makes you happy, or let your guests dress their own sliders.
The buns are made from crescent rolls that are sold in a "can". They are rolled out and cut into tiny buns, baked then cut in half. The crescent rolls make tasty little buns. I don't usually use rolls in a "can", but they are handy and good for this recipe. I've recently learned that Pillsbury Crescent Rolls are dairy-free. So, that is an added bonus.
I hope you enjoy!
