Beef & Mushroom Sliders

The mushrooms in this recipe aren't just for flavor—they replace half the ground beef. The flavor of the mushrooms complements the beef, so you end up with a seriously satisfying slider.

Ingredients

  • 2 pkgs (8 oz./250 geach) white or cremini mushrooms
  • 8 oz. (250 g) 80 or 85% lean ground beef
  • 1   egg
  • ½ cup (125 g) panko bread crumbs, plus additional for sprinkling
  •  salt and pepper
  • 8–10   Slider buns, bibb lettuce leaves, or pita pockets
  •  Optional toppings: sliced tomato, Swiss cheese, pickles

Directions

  1. Slice the mushrooms with the Quick Slice. Place the mushrooms into the Manual Food Processor in batches and finely process.

  2. Transfer the mushrooms to the 3-qt. (3-L) Micro-Cooker® Plus. Cover and microwave on HIGH for 2½–3 minutes. Drain the mushrooms very well in a small Stainless Steel Mesh Colander.

  3. Combine the mushrooms, beef, egg, and panko in a large bowl. Use the Mix ‘N Masher to mix until well combined.

  4. Heat the Nonstick Double Burner Grill over medium heat for 3–5 minutes.

  5. Place the slider insert into the base of the Burger & Slider Press and sprinkle with panko. Place about ¼ cup (50 mL) of the meat mixture into the press and release onto a Flexible Cutting Mat. Repeat to make 8–10 sliders.

  6. Grill the sliders for 3–5 minutes per side, or until the centers of the sliders are no longer pink and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). Serve on buns or lettuce wraps.
