HEALTHY MUSHROOM BISON SLIDERS
~1 LB. 94% LEAN GROUND BISON
16 LARGE CREMINI MUSHROOM CAPS
1 TBSP. SPICE CAVE FIRE & LANDING SEASONING, OR 1 TBSP. SMOKED PAPRIKA AND 1 TSP. CAYENNE
1/3 CUP GREEN ONION, CHOPPED
1/3 CUP CILANTRO, CHOPPED
2 SLICES REDUCED FAT SHARP CHEDDAR
8 SLICES ROMA TOMATOES
4 TBSP. DIJON MUSTARD
FOR TOPPING – YOUR CHOICE OF LETTUCE (WE SUGGEST ARUGULA)
The ingredients make for 8 sliders. Start the Traeger on Smoke until fire is established (4-5). Set the grill to 350 degrees F.
Mix ground bison with the seasonings and form into 8 small patties.
Thoroughly wash the mushrooms. Chop the stem off the mushroom caps. Using a small knife or spoon, carefully scrape out the inner black portion of the mushroom caps.
Spray the caps with a little olive oil, then toss them face down on the grill for no more than 8 minutes. This will help soften them a bit.
Add the bison patties to the grill and cook for about 10 minutes. Then, flip them over to cook for another 5 minutes or so (to desired readiness).
Cut each cheese slice into 4 equal squares, then place the square of cheese on each slider and let the cheese melt on the slider for 1 – 2 minutes.
Assemble the slider. Squeeze a bit of Dijon into one of the caps, then add lettuce, 1 tomato slice, the bison patty and then top with the other mushroom cap.
Skewer with a toothpick or wooden stick if needed. Enjoy!
