I often get cravings for burgers since cutting grains out of my diet. I have seen lots of recipes using lettuce and Portobello mushrooms as bun substitutes. I was in the grocery store the other week and was craving a juicy burger. That is when I spotted these mushrooms and came up with the perfect idea for Sliders! I’m rather small in stature, so large burgers can sometimes be daunting. Sliders were made for me! (And children, but sshhh, there is a big “kid” in all of us!) So I decided to make Mushroom Sliders!
This recipe will depend on how many sliders you want to make, so buy the amount of mushrooms that you will need for the number of burgers you want to make. I used a little over a pound of hamburger meat and made a dozen sliders, so this recipe is based off of that. These would be great for appetizers, kids parties, and in my case, dinner! Release your inner child and enjoy some mushroom sliders!
1 lb hamburger
2 tbsp garlic powder
2 tbsp liquid aminos
1 tbsp black pepper
2 tbsp white truffle oil (optional)
A dozen medium sized mushrooms
1. Wash mushrooms thoroughly. Carefully cut in half.
2. Heat skillet on medium heat. Use olive oil to lightly grease.
3. Once hot, “toast” the mushrooms halves on either side. Set aside.
4. Put hamburger meat in a bowl. Sprinkle half the seasonings on top and begin to mix. Then add the second half. 5. Create golf sized balls with hamburger and flatten with hands. Place into skillet and allow to cook through. 5-7 minutes.
6. Build sliders. Add optional toppings of avocado, lettuce, tomato, Dijon mustard, etc. Enjoy!
