Whether you’re gearing up for a big game, a party or just a family dinner, sliders are always a hit.  And if you’re trying to go a little lighter on the calories, then making healthy practical substitutions is a must. Swap ground meat for a leaner version and swap the bread buns for mushroom caps.

Try this quick and easy low-carb slider recipe I recently made.

Mushroom Bison Sliders

Ingredients

Ingredients for 8 sliders:

  • ~1lb 94% lean ground bison
  • 16 large cremini mushroom caps
  • Seasonings:
    • 1 tablespoon Spice Cave Fire & Land seasoning (OR 1 tablespoon smoked paprika, 1 teaspoon cayenne)
    • 1/3 cup chopped green onion
    • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • For sliders:
    • 2 regular slices reduced fat sharp cheddar
    • 8 Roma tomato slices
    • maché rosettes (or your choice of lettuce)
    • 4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
Steps
  1. Set grill or oven to 350F.
  2. Mix ground bison with the seasonings and form into 8 small patties.
  3. Thoroughly wash the mushrooms. Chop the stem off the mushroom caps. Using a small knife or spoon, carefully scrape out the inner black portion of the mushroom caps.  Spray the caps with a little olive oil, then toss them face down on the grill or in the oven for no more than 8 minutes. This will help soften them a bit.
  4. Add the bison patties to the grill and cook for about 10 minutes.  Then, flip them over to cook for another 5 minutes or so (to desired readiness).
  5. Cut each cheese slice into 4 equal squares, then place the square of cheese on each slider and let the cheese melt on the slider for 1 – 2 minutes.
  6. Assemble the slider. Squeeze a bit of Dijon into one of the caps, then add maché (lettuce), 1 tomato slice, the bison patty and then top with the other mushroom cap.  Skewer with a toothpick or wooden stick if needed.
