There is something about sliders that I love. I am not sure if its the novelty of the mini burger or what, but I love them. I recently had a potluck at work and was excited about bringing a plant based dish to share. My fellow employees who are not vegans or even vegetarians loved them!
The recipe can come off looking difficult, but they are pretty easy to make. I got a few questions on what type of rolls to use. Really you can use any type of dinner roll that is big enough to slice in half, and small enough to fit a slider patty. You can also get creative with what you top it with. I used a sweet onion, and tomato. But you can also throw an avocado on there or even romaine slices. I also topped mine with a raspberry chipotle sauce. The sweet and spicy sauce really complemented the cajun taste of the slider.
Let us know what you top yours with!
- 1 Large Sweet Potato or 2 Medium Size
- 2 Cans of White Cannellini Beans, Risned and Drained
- 1/2 - 3/4 Cups of Bread Crumbs
- 25 Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls
- 2 Tablespoons of Tahini
- 2 Teaspoons of Maple Syrup
- 2 Teaspoons of Cajun Seasoning
- Box of Panko Bread Crumbs
- 2 Tomatoes
- 1 Sweet Onion
Preheat oven to 400f.
Place sweet potato in oven for 45 minutes - 65 minutes. Remove from the oven when you can pierce through with a fork easily.
Place cooked sweet potato in fridge to cool for 10 - 15 minutes. Remove from refrigerator and remove skin. If the potato is still hot, put it back in the refrigerator.
After potato is cool, place in a bowl with the beans and mash them.
In a separate bowl, mix the tahini, maple syrup, and Cajun seasoning.
Pour the tahini mix into the mashed beans and potato mix.
Stir in 1/2 cup of bread crumbs. Continue to add bread crumbs slowly until the potato and bean mixture is sticky enough to form patties.
Preheat oven to 375f.
While oven is preheating, form your slider patties. You will want them to be about 2 - 2 1/2 inches so they fit on your dinner rolls.
Pour panko crumbs onto a plate. Roll patties into the crumbs so they stick.
Place patties on a non stick baking sheet and bake for 7 minutes, flip and bake for 7 more.
Slice rolls in half and place patty on roll. Top with tomato and onion slice.
