I made a dozen of these yesterday. I loaded three with pickles, onions, and mustard. They really hit the fast-food-craving spot. I couldn't even finish the third one. They are Phase I friendly, and I imagine on Phase II they would be great with sweet potato or butternut squash oven fries.
Sesame Seed Buns for Sliders:
Preheat oven to 350*.
1/2 c. black beans, rinsed (could sub ricotta)
1/4 c. flaxseed
1/4 c. almond meal
3 packets Splenda
1 t. baking powder
pinch of salt
1 t. sesame seeds (optional)
Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth. Spray a non-stick muffin tin heavily with cooking spray. Pour mixture into muffin cups (should make 12). Bake 15 minutes or until puffy and done. If you want sesame seed buns, sprinkle them on after about 10 minutes of baking. Cool and slice.
These are also great with SB chicken nuggets with buffalo sauce
for a tasty chicken-mini, or with ground buffalo burgers, or tuna or chicken salad.
The burgers: Shape 1 lb. of lean ground beef into 12 3 1/2-inch patties. Sprinkle with Canadian Steak Seasoning. Broil (turnng once), fry, or grill. Great topped with low-sugar barbecue sauce or guacamole, in addition to the usual suspects.
