Quick Mini Pepper Sliders

17 May

So thanks to some of my recent cooking magazine purchases,  I’ve developed a small obsession with “cute food”. I know what some of you are thinking, “why would you even care to make food cute if you are just going to stuff it in your face?” I can’t say I disagree, however, I am ALL about “functional food”. Take these Mini Pepper Sliders for example. They may be cute,  but they are VERY easy to make, super quick, and did I mention, DELICIOUS?  If you have 15 minutes, a few pounds of ground beef ( or meat of choice), and you don’t want the same boring ol’ burger, give these lil guys a try. I think you will like them!


  •  2 lbs of ground meat of choice ( I used venison)
  •  Dash of salt and pepper
  •  1 tsp of onion powder
  •  3 bell peppers
  • 1 tbsp of Olive Oil


  • In a medium bowl, mix your ground meat and seasonings with your hands. Set aside
  • Slice your bell peppers in 1/2 -1 inch thick rings. Set the rings flat on a plate and use them like a cookie cutter by filling in the center with your seasoned meat, pressing down firmly to fill the center.
  • Place sliders in a skillet on medium heat with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Cook each side for 6 minutes for medium cooked burgers. Eat and enjoy!
