Some nights it can be hard to come up with something that works for everyone around the dinner table. So, when a friend made sliders and added veggies in, I was pleasantly surprised to watch as all the kids wolfed down the little burgers. Of course I had to try it for myself and make these grilled beef burgers with shredded carrot. Once again they were a huge hit. The great thing about this recipe is it can easily be altered to fit whatever you have on hand in your veggie drawer. I used carrots, but diced peppers, mushrooms or zucchini would also work. You can grill them out like I did, or cook them right on your stovetop. Whatever is easiest and works for you!
Here’s how I made these little beef sliders.
1.25 lbs lean ground beef (Makes 8-10 sliders)
2 good sized carrots shredded (I used a box grater)
1/2 cup bread crumbs
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cheese, tomato and other burger toppings
1. Preheat grill.
2. Mix together in bowl the beef, carrots, egg, bread crumbs, salt and pepper and shape into small size patties. Sprinkle patties with a little additional salt and pepper.
3. Grill about 3 minutes per side, flipping only once.
4. Let rest for a few minutes once off the grill. Place on bun, top with cheese and other toppings, enjoy!
This was a great weeknight meal and we even had a few leftovers for the next day. I love when lunch is a no brainer, ha! Tell me lovelies, what veggies would you put in your sliders?
