Another “healthy” junk food night.. sliders with yummy toppings!

This post really isn’t really about sliders. I mean, it is.  But it isn’t.  We all know how to make burgers. We all know to make small burgers.  But the bun is made of White Sweet Potato Toast (not my idea but I really don’t remember where I got it, but here is a video on how to make it) and that alone makes it something delicious. However, it is what you  put ON a burger is what makes it your own.  So I wanted to share some ideas (ok, and some pictures) of great and fun, allergy free AIP/Wahl’s Friendly Recipes so you can have a junk food night and still stay on track.  Most of these ingredients you can find at any grocery store but if something is obscure, I went ahead and included some affiliate links for your convenience.  For my full disclosure policy, please click here.

AIP and Paleo Toppings:

Homemade Pickles

This is a southern tradition that goes back probably a few hundred years.  Simply slice cucumbers and some red onion and soak overnight in water with some Vinegar (for this recipe makeover we are using Apple Cider Vinegar) and some sea salt.  Black Pepper optional (AIP reintro).  The real flavor is from the red onions and vinegar.

Dairy Free and Nut Free Pesto:

A cup of Basil and approximately a 1/4 cup of olive oil with 1 to 2 raw garlic cloves placed in a food processor.  Add the olive oil gradually so that you can control the thinness or thickness of the pesto as you see fit.

Caramelized Onions and Sauteed Mushrooms:

Mashed Avocado

AIP catsup.

I’ve linked this to a recommended recipe.

Fresh grated horseradish.

This could also be grated into the ground beef before forming.

Zucchini Cheese

Side Dishes

Homemade Slaw

chopped cabbage, Apple Cider Vinegar and Olive oil with a pinch of salt and a 1/4 teaspoon of honey make this dish simple.   For add-ins, you can add tomato (not aip) or avocado or fresh herbs like cilantro but that is certainly not necessary.

Marinated Veggies

Same dressing as above but with Italian seasoning and marinated overnight.  I suggest steamed asparagus, cauliflower, carrots, yellow squash and some fresh celery, red onion or cucumber.

Root Vegetable fries

You can make this with any root vegetable, tossed with olive oil and sea salt (extra seasonings optional) and broil or roast them until they are crispy.  You can use sweet potatoes, parsnips, turnips, rutabagas, carrots, or others to make your “fries”.

side dish to go with my paleo sliders
I made these “fries” in my toaster oven with the skins that I peeled off of my sweet potatoes. I used sea salt and lime juice.  I did 400 degrees for 30 minutes and stirred them half way through.
