Kids’ Lunch Cheddar Beef Sliders
with Tortilla Chips, Cucumber Rounds, Orange Slices & Grapes
These kid-sized cheeseburger sliders are perfect for lunch boxes! Topped with mild cheddar and sandwiched between rounds of white bread (no crusts here), we’re pretty sure you won’t see this lunch coming back uneaten. Pair with cukes, oranges and grapes (or sub in whatever your kiddos prefer—you’re the lunch chef!). Rest assured your little ones will get the fuel they need, and without all the planning and shopping, you’ll have more time for them—or for you!
This recipe is designed to provide lunch for multiple days. For each lunch meal, 3 servings and 6 servings are provided for a 2 person and 4 person box respectively.
Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

• Wash and dry produce. • Using a large drinking glass or round cookie cutter, cut circles out of the centers of bread (about a 3½-inch round per piece).
• Trim and thinly slice cucumber into rounds. • Halve orange; slice crosswise into ½-inch-thick half-moons. • Halve grapes if desired.
• In a large bowl, combine beef* and a pinch of salt and pepper. Form into three patties (six patties for 6 servings), each slightly wider than the bread rounds.
• Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add patties and cook to desired doneness, 3-5 minutes per side. • In the last minute of cooking, top each patty with cheddar and cover to melt cheese. • Transfer patties to a paper-towel-lined plate.
• Spread each bread round with ketchup. Top half the rounds with cheesy patties and remaining bread rounds, ketchup sides down, to form sliders.
• To serve: Divide sliders between plates. Serve with tortilla chips, cucumber rounds, orange slices, and grapes on the side. • To stash: Let sliders cool completely. Refrigerate sliders, tortilla chips, cucumber rounds, orange slices, and grapes in separate containers and pack as desired for lunch!
