SIDES: Juicy, Low-fat, Sliders on Whole Wheat Buns

Who doesn't like sliders? It's all the fun of a burger, but in a cuter, gourmet package.  This recipe results in a super juicy, well seasoned, and most importantly low-fat slider.  The key component of this recipe is the Lipton's Onion Soup mix (unfortunately, it does have MSG in it - if you can find a replacement, use it).

  • 1 lb lean ground beef, chicken, or turkey
  • 1 packet onion soup mix
  • 1/2 - 1 tbsp black pepper
  • Optional: 1 jalapeno, finely chopped
  • Whole wheat dinner rolls
  • Romaine lettuce 
  • Pepper jack cheese, cut into slices that fit the buns
  • Brown mustard
  • Ketchup (optional)
  • Mix ground beef with the packet of onion soup mix and black pepper (add jalapeno if desired)
  • Form into small (relatively flat) patties the size of your dinner rolls
  • Heat patties on a grill or broil in oven (or bake at 450) for 8-10 minutes (4-5 minutes on each side)
  • While the patties are cooking, stick buns on a cookie sheet and bake at 450 for 3-4 minutes
  • Split buns and layer the cheese, patty, and lettuce - spread ketchup and mustard as desired on the top bun
  • Optional: add onions, pickles, or hot peppers
  • Enjoy!
