Small Surprise Summer Sliders (with other summer meal ideas inside)

I’ve been pretty busy the last few weeks and haven’t really just had time to sit and think up anything spectacular in the food category. I’ve been getting by with stir fry, tofu and rice, oatmeal, grilled veggie tortilla wraps and a few salads, mainly fast and simple things. Last week I decided to make it fun and tasty. I mixed together a few things and pulled out pretty much every condiment and topping we had to create some super simple, delicious and surprising little burgers. We both enjoyed them with some sweet potato fries and talked about the flavor combination we ended up getting. I suppose you could make them all the same, but it was fun having all the different colors and flavors on each slider.


Basic Ingredients Needed :


  • 12-15 whole wheat dinner rolls or any small bun
  • 1 recipe black bean burgers , shaped small to fit your slider buns
  • lettuce, tomato, red onion


To Make :


Follow the recipe for my black bean burgers I’ve linked to, and assemble your burgers however you choose. Below is a fun list of condiments I used and enjoyed :


  • Guacamole / Avocado
  • Miso Mayo 
  • Chipotle Vegenaise 
  • Mustard, Ketchup
  • Dill Relish
  • BBQ Sauce
  • Red Onion
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Pico de Gallo
  • Roasted Red Bell Peppers


Get creative and enjoy! You could even leave one of your combinations in the comments for us to try next time we make these 🙂
