Good late Wednesday night, I can hardly wait to jump into bed, but wanted to post while my little guys are sound asleep!
What a crack up little Kindergartners are. Every Wednesday morning I take my boys to school in their wagon a few minutes early so that my 3 year old can play with his brother at the “big boy” playground. I sat back in the shade watching and cracking up the whole time. I was entertained watching the girls chase the boys and the boys freaking out when the girls got too close. My favorite was watching my kindergartener introduce his little brother to all of his friends on the playground, while holding his hand. I could hardly believe my eyes when he started kissing and hugging him. If only he was that nice to him at home!
Whether you are BBQ’ing or not, these little sliders are so much fun and finger licking good. My BBQ sauce is a breeze to make and is so much better than those bottled sauces. Give it a try, you might even have all of the ingredients on hand. If you’ve never topped your BBQ sandwiches with coleslaw get going, you will just love it. Cool, crisp and a total must!
If you’ve got a second, I’ve got 2 friends that are in need of some votes. Catherine, my contesting buddy and author of the Dish Today is participating in the Tillamook Mac and Cheese Cook-off and needs your VOTE. It literally takes 1 second. Mandy from Gourmet Mom On The Go needs your VOTE as well for her yummy cupcakes, follow her link and hurry she needs it before noon Thursday! Good Luck Ladies!

I do accept as true with all of the ideas you have offered on your post.
They’re very convincing and can definitely work.
Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for beginners. May just you please lengthen them a bit from subsequent time?
Thank you for the post.
Hey Jenny! I love your BBQ sauce! So does my family, it is always a hit and I never have any left! I am wondering, have you ever tried canning the sauce? Do you know if it is safe to? I would like to be able to just grab a jar off my shelf and also have it there so my husband wont by bottle BBQ sauce from the store.
Hi Kasey! I haven’t tried canning my sauce before. Wish I was of more help! You could make small batches and keep it in the fridge I’d say at least 2 weeks.
I was looking for whole wheat buns! Thanks Jenny, now I know where to go!
Made your BBQ sauce last night with shredded beef sandwiches and it was SO good! Way, way better than the store-bought, HFCS-laden BBQ sauce. Thanks! 🙂
I love this recipe although I make it using PORK instead of the chicken. I cook the pork in the crockpot until done, take it out and shred it and then add the BBQ sauce. We made this for my daughter’s baptism when we were feeding 30 people. Everyone loved it (although a few were reluctant to put the coleslaw ON the slider) 🙂
Thanks for such awesome recipes!
I made this recipe last night, with shredded leftover turkey and with the coleslaw on top my kids didn’t even complain about the spicy kick of the bbq sauce! Thanks for the recipes – you’re a cutie. Can’t wait to try more!
i printed this recipe off a couple of months ago and finally made it last night. YUM! they were so delicious, everyone raved. it will definitely become a staple meal in my monthly menu planner!
This was by far the easiest bbq sauce I’ve ever made, but next time I think I will add some onion powder and garlic powder for a little extra kick. Thanks for the recipes.
the only reason I’m not going to try this is because I live in Memphis, home of barbeque! But these do look excellent! And putting slaw on top is the way to go, for sure!
I made these for dinner last night and we all loved them!! Great bbq sauce and awesome coleslaw. I subbed splenda for sugar in both and used light miracle whip. This was a super healthy and delicious meal. Thanks!
yumm my mouth is watering. And I like that they are pork free 🙂
I tried commenting on this the other day, but I had computer problems.
Anyway, this is hilarious! Thanks for sharing.
I’ll have to try this for my little one. He’s the pickiest of them all…story of my life/inspiration for my blog…
I’m hoping my youngest will be the foodie like his mama!
Thanks for your sweet comment. So glad you enjoyed these little sliders, I LOVE them too! Glad you’ve enjoyed the recipes here! It’s comments like yours that inspire me to continue blogging!! Thanks.

You are too funny. No it’s not granna’s recipe! Little snitchy!
Yum, give me some of those sliders! Is that Granna’s coleslaw recipe? Maybe you could give her a shout out ;D
This is such an amazing recipe! We absolutely loved it! I am in love with this site. I feel like so often I get into food ruts and lets just say it is a vicious cycle. Your recipes are so easy yet so tasty. Thanks for sharing all of your great recipes with those of us who struggle with creativity in the kitchen. Your food blog is my favorite! Thanks again!
Oh my, I can only dream of this creaminess melting along with BBQ chicken, Yum!
I’m printing this out and it’s going to go into my “Sunday Football” menu lineup. Sounds perfect!
We LOVE BBQ around here…and these look so so good. I’ve got to make this bbq sauce. What a great sandwich!! It’s making me so hungry!
I had never heard of pork sandwiches with cole slaw until I moved here…it seems to be the status quo and it’s turned out to be a great combination. Your sliders look delicious!
Love these, and I love the buns, now I have to find them at Costco!
Check, check, and check, I’ve got everything to make the sauce! Yum, will give it a try! It’s been forever since I made bbq sauce, I wouldn’t even know where to dig up the recipe!
Thanks for the comments everyone!
Mandy, Glad to hear you got awfully close to winning. Your cupcakes were a winner to me!
Hooray for mini food!! I always love a BBQ/slaw combo. These look yummy!
She has to win! She just has to.
Sliders look awesome.
With a picture like that I would not resist eating your meal. Thanks for the great recipes.
These look incredible! I think anyone would be happy to see these on their plate.
Those look yummy. Any you are right, Kindergartners are funny. I have one and he cracks me up every day.
I am totally going to try your BBQ sauce. I have never been a slaw fan but your sliders have about got me convinced!
Aren’t kindergartners so silly! So far we are having a good year too (though Aidan doesn’t want to talk to the girls either LOL!)
We finished dinner not too long ago and now I am hungry!
Those sliders look nice and moist and full of flavour. The cole slaw looks really creamy and good.
Jenny, Jenny, Jenny–you are seriously the best!! After you posted about the contest, I got a ton of votes and actually came close to winning! It’s obvious that everyone loves you and that was really nice of you to help me out. Thanks a million!
I’m totally making these this weekend! Thanks for the recipe! I love your mini madness too!
