Bacon jalapeño sliders:

I have been whipping up these bacon jalapeño grass fed sliders for years now. I think we have them at least once a month in our household. They are the perfect item to meal prep, because you can repurpose the leftovers into a variety of meals throughout the week, so that you don’t get bored with leftovers.

Ingredients you will need:

  1. Any type of ground meat you like (I’ve used bison, beef, turkey, and chicken)
  2. Red or yellow onion
  3. Cilantro
  4. Jalapeño deseeded
  5. Salt and pepper to taste
  6. Primal Palate Meat and potato seasoning
  7. Garlic ghee or any type of oil you use
  8. Garlic powder
  9.  5-6 slices cooked bacon

How to prepare air fried fries:

The first step is to prepare your air fried sweet potato fries, so you can get these going while you prepare your patties. You want to add your japanese sweet potatoes that you peeled and sliced into fries to your air fryer. Spray with some avocado oil and season with Primal Palate’s  meat and potato seasoning. Cook on 400 for 20 minutes, shaking half way through.

How to prepare sliders:

Making these sliders are simple. First, I bake my bacon in my convection oven on 400 F for 20-25 minutes, flipping half way. And once the bacon is done, I wipe off all the fat with paper towels and give them a rough chop. And then in a medium bowl, I add the ground beef, vegetables, seasonings, and bacon. Using my hands I mix it all up until incorporated and then form into 11 sliders. And lastly, heat up a grill pan with ghee and cook the slider a few minutes each side.

You could use these in:
  1. Creating a meat sauce by crumbling the patties and putting it into your favorite tomato sauce
  2. Burgers
  3. Lettuce wraps
  4. My favorite option: Burger bowls (pictured above where I load it with greens, avocado, Persian cucumbers, kraut, and crispy roasted potatoes)
Meal prepping and storing:

Since I like to meal prep my sliders ahead of time for an easy weeknight dinner option. I like to follow the steps above and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. But you could also freeze these too if you want to save half the batch for another night you don’t feel like cooking.

How to reheat:

I prefer reheating mine in my air fryer on 370 F for 5-8 minutes. And I love this method because it makes the sliders have a nice little crisp to them. But if you don’t have an air fryer, they can be reheated in a pan or convection oven for 5 minutes or until heated through.
