Ingredients

Servings  6  

  • 1 1/4 lb extra-lean, ground beef
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 medium onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 clove garlic (finely chopped)

  • 1 head romaine (or other lettuce) separated into leaves
  • Cooking spray
  • 12 whole-wheat slider buns

Directions

Tip: Click on step to mark as complete.

  1. In a large bowl mix ground meat, egg, onion, black pepper and garlic.
  2. Form patties about 2 inches across and set on a plate.
  3. Coat a heavy skillet with cooking spray and heat to medium heat. Add the sliders and cook 2-3 minutes per side.
  4. When sliders are ready, remove from heat and serve on a bun with lettuce, a slice of tomato and a slice of cucumber.

Keep it Healthy: You can use extra lean/lean ground turkey instead of beef. You can serve with raw veggie sticks instead of fries.

This dressing does not need added salt, since the mustard has salt in it.

Tip: Your children can help set out the ingredients, and depending on their age, help wash the lettuce, cut the tomatoes and cucumbers and assemble the sliders with the vegetables.
