Queenie and I recently tested out a few new (to us, anyway) slider options that we found in the freezer section at Whole Foods. They were easy and tasty enough to recommend to you.
First, Beyond Meat’s “Beastly Sliders” (a smaller version of their equally successful Beast Burger) couldn’t be easier or more pleasant. Good flavor, nice consistency… what’s not to love? And for those of you concerned with such matters, they are gluten-free and soy-free. While they would be excellent grilled, we just quickly heated them up on the stove top and ate them sans bun with a little ketchup. Yum!
Next up, the “Crispy Chick’n Sliders” from Gardein. I didn’t realize at first that these came with buns! I thought we were just getting the patties. It’s pretty fun to have a complete little sandwich in there. All you need to do is heat in the oven (the buns get inserted for the last couple of minutes) and top with your favorite burger toppings. I wasn’t in the mood for bread, so Queenie took these for a test drive on her own, topping simply with mayo. She said the buns were perfect – fluffy inside, just crisped perfectly on the outside – and she really enjoyed the patties’ taste and texture as well.
We’ll definitely be having more of both of these again! I’m thinking Beastly Sliders with pretzel bread…
