A Quick and Delicious Dinner Option

Looking for a meal that’s both quick to make and delicious? These keto-friendly beef and zucchini sliders are the perfect solution. They’re easy to prepare and packed with flavor, making them a hit with the whole family. Plus, without the potatoes, they’re completely keto-approved. Here’s how to make them:

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 6 slices zucchini
  • 4 ounces ground beef (divided into 3 portions)
  • 1 tablespoon cheddar cheese spread (divided)
  • 4 ounces leftover baked potato, sliced into steak fries
  • 2 teaspoons steakhouse seasoning

Instructions:

  1. Preheat Air Fryer: Heat air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 4 minutes.
  2. Prepare Zucchini: While the air fryer heats up, slice the zucchini, season with salt and pepper, and spray with avocado spray. Cook for 2 minutes on each side. Set aside.
  3. Bake Potatoes: Spray the potato slices with avocado spray and season with salt and pepper. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  4. Prepare Beef Patties: For each slider, take half of the ground beef portion, press down, and add 1 teaspoon of cheddar cheese spread in the middle. Add the other half of the patty on top and press together to seal.
  5. Cook Patties: Cook the patties in a skillet over medium-high heat for 6 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  6. Assemble Sliders: To assemble, place a slice of zucchini on the bottom, followed by the beef patty, a touch of mustard, and another slice of zucchini on top.
  7. Serve: Serve with ketchup for dipping. (Ketchup not included in nutritional information.)

Yes, you can grill the sliders for a smoky flavor. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time accordingly.
