Posted by on


Summer is for grilling, wine and beer on the porch, and looking up more grilling recipes. (Obviously.)

1 teaspoon granulated garlic
2 teaspoons onion powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin (optional)
1 1/2 pounds ground beef, bison, or lamb
1/2 head iceberg lettuce
1 tomato, sliced (optional, omit for nightshade free)
1/2 red onion, sliced
Creamy Ranch Dressing*
*Check out Foodie with Family for a homemade ranch dressing recipe, or Fork and Beans for a vegan version.

Step 1

Preheat a large cast-iron skillet, grill, or grill pan to medium-high heat.

Step 2

Combine the garlic, onion powder, salt, pepper, and cumin in a small bowl. Form the meat into 8 small (3-ounce) patties, taking care not to over-handle the meat or it will become tough. Use your thumb to imprint a small dent into the center of each patty. With clean hands, liberally season both sides of the patties with the Spice Blend, using a utensil to flip the patties so that your hands do not get dirty between dips into the spices. There may be extra spice left over; it can be stored in a jar for later use.

Step 3

Cook the patties for 3 minutes per side or until they reach the desired level of doneness.

Step 4

Serve over iceberg lettuce, topped with tomato and onion slices or with your favorite burger toppings. These sliders are perfect when topped with Creamy Ranch Dressing.
