We’ve got another amazing recipe for Tasty Tuesday – and this one has become one of my faves!

Sometimes you just want to cheat, am I right?! Wouldn’t it be great if that cheat worked for you, not against?

A friend of mine shared the sliders she was having for dinner one night, and it immediately lead me to craving burgers the entire week! So, that week, I was inspired to go off book a little bit and whip up some sliders! They turned out surprisingly good. And BONUS – they were really easy to make!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1 pound of ground turkey
  • Garlic & Herb Breadcrumbs, 1/2 cup
  • Garlic & Onion Spice, 1 T
  • 1 Egg
  • Worcestershire sauce, to taste – I only used a couple drizzles. Just enough to give a little flavor!
  • 2 Large sweet potatoes
  • Romaine
  • optional: Cheddar cheese for topping

Directions:

  • Mix all but the sweet potatoes and romaine in a bowl. Separate into 8 portions. Roll them into a ball.
  • Flatten each ball and sautee 4 at a time on medium-high for 7 minutes each side or until cooked all the way through. 
    • Note: My purposes, since I’m meal prepping, I don’t worry about cooking all the way through since I zap my sliders in the Microwave before eating! So, you may want to plan on upping the time by a couple minutes per side!
  • While sliders are cooking, preheat the oven to 400F.
  • Slice up the potatoes, toss in olive oil! Season as desired – I took one potato and tossed it with cinnamon, and the other potato I tossed in kosher salt.
  • Bake at 400F for 8 minutes, toss again, and then bake for 8 minutes again.
    • I actually broiled my fries in a toaster oven for 10 mins before eating.

That’s it!

To serve, I melted a little cheddar cheese on top of one slider and used romaine leaves as my “buns”. It’s a perfect, hits-the-spot cheat meal for anyone craving that greasy burger!

Enjoy!

Low Carb Caprese Pesto Pasta
