1 pound lean ground meat (beef, chicken, pork, or turkey)
1 cup chopped spinach
1/3 cup green salsa (mild or spicy)
1/4 cup finely chopped almonds
salt and pepper to taste
1 slice of Cheddar cheese folded in quarters
In a medium bowl, add all the ingredients and mix well. I like to use my hands because it really helps to combine all the ingredients. I added the almonds partly to soak up the extra liquid and partly to add flavor. I also happened to have leftovers from Sunday's pad thai.
On high heat, heat a non-stick skillet. Make patties about as big as the palm of your hand. I got 6 patties out of a pound--sliders! I put the sliders in that wonderful Everyday pan (no oil!). Turn the heat to medium high. I let the patties cook about 10 minutes on each side. I turned the patties once and topped four of them with the cheese quarters.They're juicy, as you can see from the picture above.
