Sliders with Avocado and Chipotle Mayonnaise

We love to eat homemade burgers, especially off the grill in our home. I have been seeing lots of different sliders on cooking shows and blogs lately, and thought I’d give them a try. They are just so cute and looked like alot of fun, especially for little kids. I found some water rolls, which looked like the perfect size for sliders at our local grocery store. I remembered a chipotle mayonnaise that I had seen on an episode of Bobby Flay, and thought it would be a perfect condiment for our burgers. I added some sliced avocados too to balance the heat, and add even more flavor. I just used salt and pepper to season my ground chuck. I really like, as Bobby Flay says, to just enjoy the beef. I also prefer an “au naturel” burger, just salt and pepper, I can always add other flavors with different toppings.  The size of the burgers were great fun for our son. He loved having a burger that was just his size.
