I hope you've been enjoying all the delicious slow cooker recipe ideas this week! I love, love using the slow cooker for our meals. I use it all year round and it is such a time saver for busy families and for when you have small kids like me and want to make a good dinner, but don't always have the opportunity to spend a lot of time in the kitchen in the evening.

Today I'm sharing a recipe for these yummy sliders! These little sandwiches are definitely a family friendly meal and are easy to make. These rolls from Rhodes Bane N Serve are so soft and fluffy and perfect for these sliders. I've been buying these dinner rolls for a long time because my kids love them and I often serve them as one of the "safe foods" for dinner when we are having something new or something I know my kids may be wary of trying. However, using them as slider rolls takes them to a whole new level of yummy! They are warm and soft and perfect for the whole family. Sliders are also a fun size for little ones!

We had these with a side of vegetables and fries for our meal. They'd also be a great sandwich for a game day party. They were a hit and will be making more appearances on our menu.
