Miss Picky decided we just had to have a mini burger / slider press. If it makes her eat something besides pasta and potatoes, I'm in! So we got one! and tonight we had sliders with all the fixing's!
I looked for slider buns at the supermarket, looked and looked, there was nothing specifically labeled slider buns, but Arnold's dinner rolls were a perfect fit! I guess it's sort of like when my kids were small, I never made cupcakes before, not from scratch and not from a mix. I went to the grocery and couldn't find the box of cupcake mix. Looked everywhere. Nothing said CUPCAKE MIX! Finally went to the customer service desk and asked. The girl directed me to the cake mixes with a very big smile! This time I wasn't taking chances, I didn't ask, I just went with the dinner rolls :)
Mine had chipotle mayo, onions, cheddar, avocado, shredded lettuce and tomatoes!
Miss Picky had two mini's. Plain with ketchup. This was worth it. Very worth it! I think chicken mini's are in our future! and definitely I can make these gyro burgers again, they were amazing!

Middle Eastern Sliders
Source: Rachael Ray Everyday Magazine, June-July 2009
1-1/2 pounds ground beef
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Salt and pepper
1 romaine heart, thinly sliced crosswise
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup dill pickle slices
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, plus lemon wedges for serving
3/4 cup store-bought hummus
Tip: You can also use Greek-style yogurt instead of the hummus and add feta cheese crumbles to the salad.
Preheat a grill to medium-high. Stack the pitas and wrap in heavy-duty foil; place on the grill and cover to warm.
In a large bowl, combine the beef with the cumin, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; shape into twelve 1/3-inch-thick patties. In another large bowl, combine the romaine, tomatoes and pickles; toss with the olive oil and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
Remove the pitas from the grill. Transfer the beef patties to the grill, cover and grill for 2 minutes on each side for medium. Spread each pita with some of the hummus, then top with some of the salad and 3 patties. Serve with the lemon wedges.
