Super Bowl Favorite-Tomato-Basil Sliders

January 30, 2009



Okay, I am having a slightly busy week…all because of these Tomato-Basil Sliders. I am in Nashville to be on WTVF News Channel 5 “Talk of the Town” on Friday, and I will be in Birmingham on WBRC Fox 6 TV on Saturday morning preparing this recipe and a few others for Super Bowl Sunday that I will post in the coming days.

Sliders are very popular this year, and this recipe is very special. Using marinara, fresh basil and sun-dried tomatoes create such a flavorful burger that you won’t even need any toppings. And, they’re low-fat, and you can substitute ground turkey or pork if you wish. Adults and kids love them, and I hope you will too! Wish me luck, Alison

Sun-Dried Tomato Sliders

These proportions also work perfectly as a meatloaf in a 71/2- x 4-inch pan.

Prep: 20 minutes

Cook: 10 minutes

Yield: 8 servings


1 pound lean ground beef

3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs (or regular is fine)

1/2 cup chopped fresh basil

1/2 cup marinara sauce

1/2 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes

2 egg whites

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

8 (1-ounce) Parker House rolls

Ketchup, lettuce leaves


1. Combine first 8 ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Divide dough into 8 equal portions, shaping into a 1/4-inch patty. Lightly coat with cooking spray. Place patties in a grill pan and grill 3 to 5 minutes each side or until done. Serve on cut sides of rolls and top with marinara, ketchup and lettuce, if desired.

Dear Mrs. Lewis, my mom just made the sliders for dinner tonight. I ate 4 of them and they were great. Everyone in the family gave these a thumbs up. My mom said these were so easy to make. I can't wait til my mom makes them again. Thanks for the recipe.
