Makes 30 "Sliders"
2lbs Ground Meat (Buffalo, Beef, Venison, Elk...)*
30 Paleo Buns, recipe follows
-Arugula or Mache
-Tomato (use Roma tomatoes and slice horizontally)
-Avocado or Guacamole
-Shallots (I like to use thinly-sliced shallots for sliders, instead of red onions, for their small size)
-Mustard, Homemade Mayo
*This should create about 30- 1oz burgers, after cooking. I just use sea salt and pepper for my burgers, but make them how you like. Use a small ice cream scoop for even size. They can be grilled, cooked in a pan, or baked in a 400F oven (my choice when making large batches for a party).
Paleo "Slider" Buns:
3/4 Cup Coconut Flour
2T. Arrowroot Powder
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
6 Eggs, beaten
1T. Braggs Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 Cup Melted Ghee (if you don't do ghee, try coconut oil...but, know that I haven't tried it, so don't know how it will work)
1 Egg, whisked
1 T. Sesame Seeds
- Preheat oven to 325F.
- Sift coconut flour, arrowroot powder, baking soda, and sea salt into a bowl.
- Add beaten eggs and mix to combine.
- Add melted ghee and vinegar, mix until smooth.
- Scoop batter onto a silpat or parchment paper- lined baking sheet, in 1 T. balls (I used a small ice cream scooper). You should have about 30 buns.
- Brush the tops of the buns with whisked egg and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown and slightly puffed.
- Remove from oven and transfer to a baking rack, to cool.
- Slice in half and serve with "slider" patties and toppings.
This bun recipe is inspired by this bread recipe that I recently discovered; I modified it quite a bit, but since this is where it all began, I thought it worth mentioning. We host an "Annual Super Bowl Party" at our house and, though we're going to Portland this year, I thought that it might be nice to share a few recipes that I would've liked to make this year. I usually serve burgers, in some form, but like the idea of actually getting to eat a bun and offering a bun that other non-Paleo eaters would actually enjoy. And, I really like that it's has a coconut flour base, versus an almond (which I've been limiting) flour base. This bun and burger is awesome and I'm so excited to share it with you!
