Posted on

Happy Monday!  For this week’s Mealtime Monday, I am sharing some great and simple tomato, Parmesan pesto sliders with a recipe from Cooking Light.  YUM!

Ingredients:

  • Ground beef
  • Tomatoes
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Pesto (I like using homemade)
  • Slider Bun ( I used King’s Hawaiian rolls)
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Step 1: Start off with placing your raw ground beef into a bowl.  Season with salt and pepper an mix together.

Step 2: Roll meat into small balls.  I was using 1/2 a package of ground beef and wanted to make 6 sliders, so I simply divided my meat into 6 balls and the size worked out perfectly.

Step 3: Flatten the balls to make slider meat patties.  Place into a skillet over medium-high heat.  Cook for about 3 minutes on each side or until desired done-ness.
