Queen of the Castle Sliders and Sweet Potato Fries

Who doesn't love sliders! This fat girl does! But one thing that I don't like is the amount of fat and carbs they are loaded with. This was another fabulous recipe that I found on HungryGirl.com! Here are the details:

4 oz. raw extra-lean ground beef
2 slices of Italian bread
1/3 cup chopped onion
4 hamburger dill pickle chips
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. onion powder
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. black pepper
Optional condiments: ketchup and mustard


Combine beef and seasonings in a small bowl, and knead mixture by hand until integrated. Divide seasoned beef evenly into four balls. Flatten and form each ball into a square patty on a plate. Using a knife, make four small slits on the top of each patty. Place in the freezer for 5 minutes.

Bring a pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat on the stove. Spread onion out on the pan. Place the patties on top of the onion, slit-side down, and cover the pan. Cook for 3 - 4 minutes (no flipping necessary), or until cooked through.

Meanwhile, cut each slice of bread into four squares, for a total of eight pieces. (If you like, slightly toast bread first.) Feel free to spread ketchup and/or mustard onto four pieces. Set aside.

Once patties are cooked through, scoop each one along with the onion beneath it onto one piece of bread. Top each with a pickle chip and then another bread piece (or the other way around, if you want to be fancy!). Let cool slightly, and then slide 'em into your mouth!

9 PP for sliders
4 PP for sweet potato fries
Total: 13 PP for an awesome dinner!

- Happy Eating!
