I don’t know about you, but around here it’s been raining cats and dogs. Last night, I was in the mood for a good burger, so instead of having Adam stand out in the rain, we brought our recipe inside and took advantage of our oven instead! I’ve also been trying to greatly decrease the amount of dairy I eat, since I’ve noticed it tends to make my face break out more than anything else. (Boo!) And believe it or not, trying to come up with a dairy free recipe proves quite difficult in this southern girl’s kitchen. To compromise, we still made burgers and sweet potato fries, but substituted Go Veggie sliced dairy-free american cheese. And honestly, I couldn’t even taste a difference!
Here’s our recipe for last night’s burgers! Don’t get too excited, you know I’m a fan of easy, and this is embarrassingly easy!
Easy Baked Dairy-Free Cheeseburger Sliders
-salt and pepper
-Go Veggie dairy free cheese slices
-King’s Hawaiian sweet rolls or hamburger buns
-sweet potato fries (fresh or frozen)
-9×13″ deep baking pan
1. Preheat the oven to 400*
2. Put the ground beef in a mixing bowl and use your hands to mix together the beff, diced onions, salt, pepper, and bread crumbs.
3. Form the meat mixture into the 9X13″ ungreased pan, flatten and thin out as much as possible. Poke a few holes throughout the meat to prevent any bubbles while it bakes. Bake in oven for 20 minutes.
4. Remove from oven and drain the grease.
5. Lay cheese slices on top, then place back in oven for two minutes to melt completely and bubble.
6. Sprinkle brown sugar lightly on sweet potato fries and bake according to directions. (We actually put these in about the same time we put in the meat, timing worked out perfectly)
7. Toast buns in oven, then cut meat to size of buns.
8. Add lettuce, tomato, and any other toppings.
Delicious! I think next time we make them we won’t use as much meat, so that they turn out a bit thinner. But if you were having a party, this would be a really quick and easy way to make burger sliders if you don’t have access to a grill, or don’t want to mess with it! I’m obviously a bigger fan of the grilled taste, but when you need a burger fix, this’ll do!
And of course, sweet potato fries are a must. We cheated and just used a bag of frozen ones, but they always turn out great, so I’m not going to argue it.
