2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the onion and mushrooms

  • Peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Thinly slice the mushrooms.

In a medium frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion and mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and caramelized, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, prepare the sliders.


Make the patties

  • Cut a small corner from the ground meat packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. 

In a medium bowl, combine the meat and meatball seasoning blend. Season generously with salt and pepper and mix gently until just combined. Using wet hands, form the mixture into four [eight] ½-inch-thick patties.


Cook the patties

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the patties and cook, turning frequently, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes for beef, lamb, or pork and 4 to 5 minutes for turkey or chicken.

Reduce the heat to low and continue cooking, turning frequently and brushing with the BBQ glaze, until the beef, lamb, or pork sliders are cooked to the desired doneness, 2 to 4 minutes for medium, and the turkey or chicken sliders are cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. While the patties are cooking, prepare the remaining ingredients.


Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Trim the root end from the romaine heart; remove as many of the largest outer leaves as you like for the sliders and save any remaining romaine for another use.
  • Cut away the core from the tomato; thinly slice the tomato.


Transfer the romaine leaves to individual plates and top with the sliders. Top with the tomato, caramelized onion and mushrooms, and as many pickled jalapeños as you like and serve.

Kids Can!
  • Time the patties.
  • Separate the romaine leaves.
  • Help assemble the sliders.
