      I pretty much ignored the min bet and just bet around the same as I would have if they both checked. I think this is the best line

      Possibly true since you are up against 2 opponents. Vs one opponent I'd nearly always check (or flat). It's still a legitimate option to flat in this hand. You are not going to get 3 streets of value, so it's not a huge deal if you don't bet this dry flop.

      Your bet size doesn't make a lot of sense here. The board is very dry, and your goal is to get value from hands worse than Kx not to blow both opponents out of the water.

      Maybe 40 cents is more appropriate in this spot. Followed through with a small turn barrel on safe turns.

      Vs one opponent why would you always check?
      Doesn't that make it more difficult on the turn for us if he bets as we have less of an idea of his hand strength

      The board is very dry, there simply aren't many hands he can have. It's actually better for us if he can bluff the turn.

      Assuming he has a hand like TT he will never call 3 streets anyway. So you don't lose value by checking back the flop and make it more likely you will get paid by worse.
