The ultimate mini-cheeseburger combines a burger with ooey gooey baked mozzarella.

March is one of my favorite seasons of the year and it’s not because my husband is part Irish, and we play these awesome epic St. Patrick’s Day games every year. It actually has nothing to do with St. Patrick’s Day. For me, March is all about the madness, and by that I mean fun times catching buzzer-beating basketball games.

I don’t really care about watching sports, there’s just something about the March tournament that sucks me in. Maybe it’s because there are 64+ teams that all have a shot at winning; all they have to do is win a couple of games to become champions. And I love a good underdog story.

Or maybe it’s because it’s something my family can do together without having any real knowledge of the teams beforehand. A good game is a good game whether or not you like the teams, and who doesn’t love to see a buzzer-beating last second shot to win for a big upset.

This year I’m lucky enough to have my sister and brother-in-law, Mitch, in town for selection Sunday and the first round of games. I’ve planned a fun meal complete with a DIY basketball table and Mitch’s favorite foods and snacks so we can watch and eat together, including this easy slider recipe.

These sliders were inspired by Mitch, who is a big kid at heart. And that works for me because food I make him, my 3-year-old will actually eat. Like these sliders. Mitch tried a burger once with fried mozzarella sticks on top and now orders it every time he goes back to that restaurant, so I’m hoping he’ll love my take on his favorite.

These sliders are really easy to make and only take four ingredients: mini hamburgers, slider buns, Farm Rich Mozzarella Sticks, and your favorite marinara sauce – perfect for feeding both kids and kids at heart. The Mozzarella Sticks on top serve as your cheese, just a breaded version, and add a great source of calcium and protein to the sliders. The Mozzarella Sticks are also delicious on their own if you want to cook up a few extra for game time snacking.

While the original mozzarella stick burger uses fried mozzarella sticks, I prefer to use Farm Rich Mozzarella Sticks that you bake in the oven in this recipe for less grease. They’re made with 100% real mozzarella cheese and breaded and seasoned to perfection, which also means baking them gives you a nice crisp outside and the perfect ooey gooey inside you want in a mozzarella stick.

The key here is to try and time everything so that as soon as the Mozzarella Sticks come out of the oven, the sliders are ready to eat. I recommend putting together the sliders and just topping with the hot Mozzarella Sticks as soon as they’re done, so you get that great warm cheesiness and crunch when you bite into the slider.

They’re still great at room temp or a few minutes later if you can’t get them right out of the oven. I’m a mom, so I understand if you have kids around, getting things on the table and eaten right away may just not happen.

These are my new favorite way to eat sliders and will definitely be on our table during March matchups this year. Enjoy!



Salt and pepper each of the individual ground beef patties then grill until cooked thoroughly (unless you prefer them rare).


While patties are grilling, bake Farm Rich Mozzarella Sticks according to package instructions. Either open and heat included sauce, or make your homemade marinara sauce.


While all the other ingredients are cooking, slice slider buns in half.


Put sliders together - one hamburger patty, a Mozzarella Stick hot out of the oven, and a spoonful of marinara sauce on top. Serve warm!
