There's nothing better than a platter of Grilled Sliders. These are so easy, you will have dinner done in 30 min. these will also fit in your macros and are gluten free for those watching gluten in their diet. I started transitioning gluten out of my diet in 2018 after a diagnosis with Hypothyroidism and it has helped me so much. Sometimes it can be tricky for meals, but once you get the hang of it, it's pretty easy to start implementing it into your daily diet. One thing I like to do is use different veggies to replace the bread. With these I'm using chopped Zucchini as my "bread."
First you want to wash and chop all your zucchini in thick slices(they will shrink down). I throw them in a bowl and drizzle EVOO(extra virgin olive oil), salt and pepper and onion and garlic powder and a sprinkle of Italian seasoning. I place them in a saute' pan and cook 10-15 flipping occasionally. Some will cook faster so move those to the sides. You can also put them on a pan and bake in oven at 400 for 20-25 min. flipping halfway, or in the summer grilling them on a grilling sheet. I've also thrown them in the air fryer, but I feel like when I need to use them as an alternative to buns, the saute' pan works best.
Next when it's too cold to grill I place all the sliders on the stove in a saute' pan. Cook until done. I like mine medium to medium well done. Since they are sliders they will cook faster than regular size hamburgers. We love using Longhorn seasoning or any burger seasoning will work great.
I also cut up small squares of Sharp White Cheddar Cheese to go on top. Let melt. Then place sliders on paper towels to soak up some of the grease. Then layer your sliders with zucchini slice, beef slider and then add another zucchini on top. They are delicious and hubs and kids approved. These have made it into our weekly rotation.
Drop a comment below if you're gonna try some sliders this week! Don't forget to pin this for later!
**A quick tip when you're at the supermarket and there are no sliders available, ask your Butcher if he would make you some sliders while you shop. I like this option the best and then I can pick what beef I want to use. I buy grass-fed organic beef.
