 Summertime Waffle Sliders Recipe
12 Servings
Prep: 12 min.
Total: 20 min.
  1. On a baking sheet, heat waffle fries according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine ground beef, garlic powder, salt, and pepper; mix well. Divide mixture into 12 equal portions and shape in 12 slider-sized patties.
  3. In a grill pan or skillet over medium heat, cook sliders in batches, if necessary, 3 minutes; turn over and place a piece of cheese on each. Continue to cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until desired doneness and cheese is melted (discard any pan drippings between batches which will help reduce the calories and saturated fat).
  4. Place sliders on 12 of the waffle fries and top with remaining fries. Serve immediately.

Better-for-You Tip: To make these easy-to-serve portion-perfect sliders look extra special, we suggest topping each with a pickle slice (Clover Valley™ has both dill and bread & butter varieties), or add some canned sliced mushrooms (that are drained) before placing the cheese on top. And since we use a leaner ground beef (80/20 vs.73/27), we keep the calories in check and the protein up.
