California Sliders
  • 1 pound 90/10 ground beef
  • 1 ripe Hass avocado, peeled, pitted and sliced
  • 4 slices reduced fat Swiss or your favorite cheese
  • Thinly sliced red onion
  • Toasted slider buns (I'm very fond of potato buns)
  • ⅓ cup canola mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons chipotle sauce
  • Salt & pepper
  1. To make the chipotle mayo, combine ⅓ cup of mayo with 2 tablespoons of chipotle sauce. Refrigerate until needed.
  2. Season the beef with salt and pepper. Gently mix to combine. Divide the beef into 8 portions. Form each portion into a burger patty. With your thumb, press an indent into the center of each patty, to keep the burgers from bulging when they cook.
  3. Cook the burgers one a griddle or cast iron skillet on medium high heat for 4 minutes, until seared. Flip the burgers, then top each of them with half a slice of cheese. Cook them for another 4-5 minutes for medium rare, or a bit longer if you want them to be well done.
  4. Place a slider on the bottom half of your toasted bun. Top each slider with a few slices of avocado, red onion, and a drizzle of the chipotle mayo.
