Lamb Sliders

For Christmas, Forrest received a Big City Slider Maker.  I was skeptical, to say the least, but I tried it out tonight to make dinner.  Thanks to a fantastic deal at the grocery store, I was able to try out lamb sliders tonight.  I found some slider buns on sale in the fresh bakery section as well!  I didn't follow any recipes, just made it up as I went along.

Lamb Sliders

1 pound ground lamb
1 tbsp evoo
fresh herbs such as rosemary and parsley, minced
freshly ground pepper
kosher salt
burger toppings of choice

The slider maker was easy enough to use....
Using the provided scoop, shape the sliders and drop into the lightly greased pan.  Place on stovetop on medium heat, cover with top lid, and cook 5 mins or until cooked through.  I personally chose to dump out the juices as the sliders were cooking, which seemed to reduce the "boiling" factor.  The bottoms of the sliders were nicely browned, but the tops were not.  I simply covered the sliders with cheese and broiled them for a few seconds to melt the cheese.

We enjoyed this yummy treat with roasted "chips" of carrots and potatoes topped with evoo, kosher salt, freshly ground pepper, rosemary, and parsley.
