I don’t know about you, but one of the biggest stressors I have when it comes to getting dinner ready is getting all the food ready at a similar time. So, when there’s going to be a lot of food, I try my best to have things that require little to no cooking or can be made ahead. You can plan on making these sliders the morning of by throwing everything into your slow cooker and plate them before dinner.
