Sliders - Ranch Beef & Roasted Red Pepper Salmon
Have you ever thought that if you eat a whole hamburger, you'll be too stuffed to eat anything else?
Make sliders - they're small enough to still enjoy a side dish - or eat 3!
What you will need:
Ranch Beef Burgers:
Tear up the bread into small pieces and mix with about 2 tablespoons milk.
Add in ground beef and ranch dressing seasoning.
Mix well with your hands and form patties about 2 1/2 inches round, they will shrink upon cooking.
Roasted Red Pepper Salmon Patties:
Remove salmon from skin. Cut into small pieces - most should be about 1/2 to 1/4 inch, but chop some of it up pretty small.
Chop red peppers and herbs.
Mix together the salmon, about 1/4 cup red peppers, 1/4 cup fresh herbs, 1 egg, 1/4-1/2 cup bread crumbs and 1 1/2 tablespoons Salmon Seasoning using your hands.

Form into 2 inch patties.
Grill, and top with your favorite burger toppings.
On the Salmon burgers, I like mayo, Dijon, arugula, tomato and avocado.
I made homemade artisan rolls with the 5 Minutes A Day To Fresh Bread recipe (http://www.motherearthnews.com/Real-Food/Artisan-Bread-In-Five-Minutes-A-Day.aspx)
But small rolls or King's Hawaiian Bread will work just as well.
This recipe makes a TON of sliders, you could feed a crowd, or put some in your freezer for an easy dinner later.
And obviously you could make regular sized burgers with this recipe as well.
