How to make the best lamb sliders

These lamb sliders are so sloppy and good.  They are a slider version of a sloppy joe made with ground lamb.  These are quick and easy to throw together and there will be zero leftovers.  Another recipe that includes commonly used ingredients that most people that cook some at all will already have.  

Perfect for a game day meal or to make several for a family gathering.  This is also another recipe we used ground beef with once and it really did nothing for this recipe.  We agreed if we didn’t have any ground lamb available at the time, then we would just not make it!

So give this sloppy lamb sliders recipe a try and let me know what your think.  You will not be disappointed.
