Look no further for super simple yet delicious meal!  I have Beyond Meat Sliders to share with you.  I feel like a broken record when I talk about plant-based recipes…. they aren’t all the bad, they do have flavor, they have good texture, blah blah blah.  Basically, I’m saying don’t knock it until you try it!  These sliders were incredibly flavorful – like more flavorful than a traditional beef patty, plus they were tender, juicy, and seasoned perfectly.

The recipe can be found here.

Start by making the caramelized onions.  Slice the onions into strips.  Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat, add the onions and cook for about 10 minutes or until soft and translucent.  Season with sugar and salt and stir to combine.  Reduce the heat to low and continue to cook for about 30 minutes or until the onions start to turn brown and caramelize, stirring occasionally.

Add the balsamic, garlic, thyme, and red pepper flakes.  Stir to combine and continue to heat for 2-3 more minutes then remove from the heat and set aside.

Next, you’ll want to prepare the slider “meat”.  Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Add the beyond meat, salt, pepper, and garlic powder to a large bowl and mix until well combined.  Place the mixture in a 9×13 baking dish and press down into a rectangular shape.  You want it to be approximately the same size as the package of rolls.  Bake for 20-25 minutes.


Then, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Use a bread knife to slice the rolls in half, lengthwise, but keep the rolls attached.  Place the bottom half on the baking sheet.  When the “meat” is done baking, use a large spatula or two to carefully lift and transfer to the baking sheet, placing it on top of the rolls.  Top with sliced gouda and the caramelized onions.  Place the other half of the rolls on top.

Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl.  Mix in the garlic powder, dried oregano, dried basil, dried parsley, and salt.  Brush the mixture over the top of the rolls.

Bake, uncovered, for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the rolls are toasted.  Slice into individual sliders, serve, and enjoy!

We devoured this recipe!  The onions were sweet and salty, the “meat” was tender and well-seasoned, the rolls were toasted yet soft on the inside, and the cheese added a nice nutty flavor.  We will be having these again!

If you follow a vegan diet, make sure you are using vegan cheese, rolls, etc.  Or if you prefer cheddar or gouda, go ahead and substitute.  Make these your own.  But do please enjoy!

Happy Cooking!
