1 1/4 lb extra-lean, ground beef
1 large egg
1 medium onion (finely chopped)
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 clove garlic (finely chopped)
3 small tomatoes sliced into ¼ inch rounds
1 medium cucumber peeled and sliced into ¼ inch rounds
1 head romaine (or other lettuce) separated into leaves
12 whole-wheat slider buns
In a large bowl mix ground meat, egg, onion, black pepper and garlic.
Form into 12 patties about 2 inches across.
Coat a heavy skillet with cooking spray and heat to medium heat. Add the sliders and cook 2-3 minutes per side.
When sliders are ready, remove from heat and serve on a bun with lettuce, a slice of tomato and a slice of cucumber.
