Salt and pepper to taste
3 plum tomatoes thinly sliced
Arugula (a few pieces for each slider)
Wholly Guacamole Spicy dip (as much as desired)
Serve with pickled jalapenos on the side for extra southwest kick!
Place meat into a larger bowl and lightly mix with salt and pepper. Use a fork to avoid over mixing. Shape into 20 patties, about 2 tablespoons of meat per patty.
Brush each parry with olive oil to keep from sticking. Arrange patties on a large baking sheet and place in a hot oven preheated to broil. Broil for 4 to 5 minutes. As soon as the hot patties come out of the oven top with a slice of pepper jack cheese and let melt.
Lightly toast split dinner rolls in broiler. Don’t take your eyes off them as they will toast very quickly.
Assemble the sliders by placing a few pieces of arugula on the bottom of the slider bun. Top with cheese covered patty, a thin slice of tomato and guacamole. Serve with a few pickled jalapenos on the side for some extra heat.
