Herbed Sliders, 2 Variations

Mim says, I was a vegetarian for many (11) years and have returned to meat eating a tad bit shy. Making sliders has been a fun project for me, a way to reconnect with the idea of preparing meat while incorporating herbs and spices I already know and love. Oona says, in our house, simple burgers are an easy and popular way to sneak vegetables and new tastes in for our kids. We often eat them with sauerkraut or pickles. Pair these with a grated carrot salad, tangy coleslaw and some delicious bread from El Jardin Bakery slathered with mustard for a summer dinner.
