Ranch Cheeseburger Sliders

When I was younger, my mom used to always use a glass to cut hamburger buns out of wonder bread if we didn’t have any.  I used to think this was so horribly lame and embarrassing and just hate it.  Today I realized this idea is GENIUS for getting rid of excess bread (read: points) that come from all those buns on sliders.  So here I was…cutting around the glasses to make perfect skinny hamburger buns, rolling my eyes at that bratty child who thought she was too cool for diy burger buns 😉

Cutting the buns out is super easy.  Simply take a juice glass and trace along the edge with a knife on a roll up.  I could get six buns out of one roll up.  (I used the left over scraps of roll up to make baked tortilla chips…hey I don’t like to waste points!)
