  5. Once the patties are cooked, add them to your favorite slider buns and enjoy!

 

Recipe developed by Pearl Celeste Brooks, MS, RD

This is a great tasting burger without adding salt. The secret for this great taste is allowing the meat and ingredients time to sit together.

For a low-carb alternative, you can enjoy the patty plain or swap the buns for lettuce wraps!
