Who needs a traditional hamburger bun when you can upgrade your next slider with an oh-so-healthy tomato in place of a bun? Try this recipe at your next gathering and watch these sliders disappear.


Select ingredients:


  1. In a small bowl, combine the beef with the salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce.
  2. Shape the beef into 4 small slider-sized hamburger patties, suitably sized to match the tomatoes.
  3. On a medium-high grill, cook the hamburger patties until done (approximately 3 to 5 minutes per side). (A meat thermometer inserted in the center of the hamburger should reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.)
  4. To assemble the tomato bun sliders: Cut each tomato (horizontally) into equal halves. Take a paper towel and carefully dry the cut sides of the tomatoes—this will help the mayonnaise stick a bit better.
  5. Place the desired amount of mayonnaise on the bottom half of the tomato. Add the leaf lettuce, then a hamburger patty, then the shredded cheese, and the diced pickles. Top with the second half of the tomato.
  6. Run a long toothpick through the entire thing to hold everything together.
  7. Repeat until you've made 4 sliders.
