For many, this has been the hottest summer in memory. And with more than four weeks of scorching hot temperatures still to endure, eating another grilled meal in order to avoid a hot kitchen can be unbearable.

Celebrity Chef Todd English -- who just opened his 24th restaurant, a french brassiere called Ca Va in Manhattan -- concocted some tasty sliders that require very little time behind the stove. And the price can't be beat.
