Dinner Recap: Diamond Burgers

I made incredible sliders yesterday, and they were a major win. I just wanted to share them here on the blog so I could find them again, because I’m probably going to turn these into a staple in our house. They turned out way better than I imagined… even the kiddos loved them.

They aren’t clean or healthy, but you could make a few adjustments to improve them:

  • Use ground turkey instead of beef
  • Avoid the glaze (but it’s the best part, so I’m willing to just eat more salad the next day to keep the glaze)
  • Serve open-faced (1/2 the roll)
  • Replace with vegan cheese, or even just nix the cheese and swirl some hot sauce over the top. The filling was delicious!
  • Dinner Rolls (I used these, but any dinner rolls would work)
  • 1 lb of ground beef
  • 2 cups of diced onion
  • Garlic
  • 1 can of Ro-Tel
  • Sharp cheddar
I made my sliders ahead of time, then took them to my friend’s house to bake. I was worried that the bottom of the sliders would get soggy, but they didn’t. I drained off the beef, and drained the Ro-Tel, so there really isn’t much liquid. I took off the aluminum for the last 5 minutes, and the glaze on the top, was SO good.
Original and full-version of the recipe is here. Thanks for an incredible meal, Kevin & Amanda!
