Method to Prepare:-
- Put all ingredients except the bread crumbs in the food processor.

- Form burger patties on the prepared surface using about 1/2 cup of mixture per burger.
- Bake for 25-35 minutes. Burgers will be hot throughout, but don’t let them get too dry.
- Allow cooling for a few minutes on the baking sheet before serving.
- For pico de gallo, combine tomato, remaining onion and jalapeño, coriander, and lime juice in a bowl.
- Place each patty on a bun and top with 1 tbsp pico de gallo and serve.
- Enjoy these healthy and savory sliders!
The pico de gallo, a salsa, adds wonderful texture to these burgers. If meat is okay, cook a finely diced rasher of bacon with the garlic and jalapeño for smokiness. Try these amazingly delicious sliders and enjoy them on your weekend dinners.
