Low-Carb SuperLicious Sliders

Low-Carb SuperLicious Sliders

Enjoy every bite of these little delicious beef sliders – so tasty you won’t even notice there’s no bun. Spiced up with smoothly crushed garlic and onion, it brings forth the juicy taste in the ground beef; and then we have the onions, bacon and sautéed mushrooms to make every bite “superlicious”!

Tip: You can add an extra tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce into the beef mixture if you aren’t on a carb intake diet or staying away from extra sugar in your recipes. The Worcestershire sauce will even give it more flavour.

Preparation time: ten minutes
Cooking time: 35-40 minutes
Serves: 4 (8 sliders)

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tablespoons of white onion (smoothly crushed)
  • Black pepper and sea salt
  • 4 ounces of sliced white mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 cloves garlic (smoothly crushed)
  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 3 ounces of crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons of additional virgin olive oil, divided up evenly
  • 3 strips of bacon, chopped into thirds and cooked

Possible Side Dish: 1 12-oz. packed up frozen broccoli, steamed

Directions:

  1. First preheat the oven broiler to high and then put it in the oven rack at the top to the second highest.
  2. Next cook the bacon and set it to the side for later.
  3. Mix mustard, ground beef, garlic and onions in an average sized bowl. Add black pepper and salt seasonings and use your fingers or a fork to mix until the mixture is properly combined.
  4. The beef mixture should be split into eight different portions with each shaped into a little patty. Place the patties on a flat plate and smash them down gently with the flat of your hand or a spatula to give them a nice patty size and shape.
  5. Use a large skillet (oven-safe) to heat up the olive oil on an average heat setting, and then add mushrooms and let them cook for about 5-6 minutes while stirring it regularly until the mushrooms are a lovely brown. Turn the heat off, put the mushrooms in a bowl and set them to the side for now.
  6. The leftover tablespoon containing olive oil should be added to the pan and swirled to cover the bottom. Put the slider patties into the skillet and cook for about 2-3 minutes until they become nicely browned and are cooked evenly.
  7. Turn off the heat and add crumbled blue cheese and sautéed mushrooms to each slider. The skillet containing the patties should now be placed in the oven for about 2-3 minutes (or till the blue cheese begins to melt) under the broiler.
  8. Take out the skillet from the oven and add a piece of cooked bacon to each slider. They should be served at once on a bed of lettuce or with a side of steamed broccoli, depending on your own personal preferences. Enjoy!
