You know what I love most about sliders? The fact that it is perfectly acceptable to eat more than one burger at a time. In fact, it is not only acceptable, it is expected! And I really love it when I can have my sliders on gluten free buns instead of wrapped in a lettuce leaf.
This gluten free recipe puts a Greek spin on the classic burger; ground lamb with crumbled feta and oregano and a quick tzatziki sauce to top it off. I serve the burgers on my amazing Greek slider buns (more about those later!) with the sauce on the side along with sliced tomatoes, cucumbers and thin slivers of onion so my guests can doctor up the sliders any way they choose.

Greek sliders recipe gluten free

  1. 1. Greek Sliders Recipe - Gluten Free<br />You know what I love most about sliders? The fact that it is perfectly acceptable to eat more than one burger at a time. In fact, it is not only acceptable, it is expected! And I really love it when I can have my sliders on gluten free buns instead of wrapped in a lettuce leaf. This gluten free recipe puts a Greek spin on the classic burger; ground lamb with crumbled feta and oregano and a quick tzatziki sauce to top it off. I serve the burgers on my amazing Greek slider buns (more about those later!) with the sauce on the side along with sliced tomatoes, cucumbers and thin slivers of onion so my guests can doctor up the sliders any way they choose.<br />A while ago I received a box filled with all sorts of gluten free goodies from Kinnikinnick. Tucked in there was a package of their Kinni-Kwik Bread & Bun Mix. To be honest I didn’t pay much attention to it because when a box is filled with donuts, chocolate cake mix and Oreo style Kinni-toos cookies, bun mix just doesn’t seem that sexy. Well, let me just say this – the bun mix may not be sexy but Oh Boy! is it versatile and what a great workhorse! It makes SOFT rolls and buns – just what you want with a slider. After all no one wants to ruin the taste of a great burger with a hard, crumbly bun that tastes like cardboard. If they don’t currently sell this in your local store, make them! Trust me there are tons of ways to use this easy mix. For my slider buns I added olive oil and oregano to enhance the “Greekness”.<br />If you want to keep these sliders dairy free, leave the feta out of the burgers and give Maggie’s dairy free tzatziki sauce a try.<br />By the way – if they don’t sell ground lamb in your grocery store you can always buy a piece of leg or shoulder and ask the butcher to grind it for you. Tell him or her that you are making burgers with it so that you get the right amount of fat; you want most of it trimmed off so the burgers aren’t too fatty but they need to leave some so they don’t end up dry. <br />
  2. 2. I scaled this recipe to make 8 sliders but you can very easily double or triple the recipe for a party.   Opa!<br />Greek Sliders<br />Ingredients<br />1 pound ground lamb,3 ounces crumbled feta cheese,1 teaspoon dried oregano,½ teaspoon salt<br />¼ teaspoon pepper,QuickTzatziki Sauce (recipe follows),8 Greek Slider Buns (recipe follows),2 roma or plum tomatoes, sliced,½ hot house cucumber, sliced,¼ small white onion, thinly sliced<br />Directions<br />Combine all ingredients and divide into 8 equal portions. Roll into balls and then flatten into little burgers. Grill on a barbecue or grill pan over medium-high heat for 2 -3 minutes per side. Do not over cook.Serve the sliders on the Greek Slider Buns with the Quick Tzatziki Sauce and sliced vegetables on the side.<br />Quick Tzatziki<br />SauceIngredients<br />½ cup Greek yogurt (I use fat free but you can use any kind you like),¼ cup sour cream (low fat is fine)<br />½ hot house cucumber, peeled and grated with the large holes on a box grater<br />2 tablespoons fresh dill, minced,1 – 2 cloves garlic, grated or minced,Large pinch of kosher or fine sea salt,Large pinch black pepper<br />Directions<br />Combine all ingredients.
