And don’t even think about talking to me about making them without pickles. Pickles are everything to begin with, so count me in for double here. And they are easy to make! I think they’re easier to make, than it is to say Worcestershire sauce. I actually don’t need bread to love a burger. You know that all I need is pickles to be happy with a burger. I even order them on hot dogs. So this fun recipe is not a stretch. Think of it as perfect bunless cheeseburger sliders. You can make the sliders for the kids, and the burger bites for the adults. Or you can mix and match.
