Mini Zucchini Burgers

Servings: 4


  • 1 extra large zucchini or 2 medium/large, cut into 16 1/2inch-slices
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 lbs. lean ground beef
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 4 slices of cheddar cheese cut into quarters to get 4 small squares
  • avocado oil cooking spray


  • Thoroughly rinse your zucchini and pat the excess moisture with a towel.
  • Carefully cut off the ends. Now simply cut across the zucchini to slice into 1/2-inch thick rounds.
  • Sprinkle rounds with a tiny bit of salt and pepper, then set aside on paper towels.
  • In a medium bowl, combine ground beef and all seasonings; stir until well combined.
  • Shape your ground beef into 8 equal sized mini-patties, about 1-inch thick.
  • Gently pat zucchini rounds dry with paper towels.
  • Lightly grease a large skillet with avocado oil cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat, then add sliced zucchini rounds, cook until slightly charred, about 1-2 minutes per side.
  • Set zucchini aside on a plate.
  • Add burger patties to the pan and sear each side until nicely golden, about 2-4 minutes. Flip to the other side, then add the cheese.
  • Continue to cook until the beef is done to your liking and cheese is nice and melty!
  • Assemble your burger sliders as shown, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
