"My family loves hamburger sliders, so I was excited to try these sausage variations. They were perfect for a backyard get-together with friends and family, not to mention incredibly simple to prepare. Jalapeños gave the relish just enough heat to satisfy my pepper-loving husband, while my kids enjoyed the sweetness of the pineapple. Perfect summer finger-food!"
