Low Carb Sliders
Preheat the oven to 400 Fahrenheit. Divide lettuce, cheese, and pickles for assembly prep while the oven is preheating.
Divide the ground beef into 4 equal balls, arrange on a cookie sheet, and flatten the balls
Cook ground beef for 15 minutes or until internal temperature is 155 Fahrenheit, check ¾ of the way through cooking and drain fat if necessary
After the ground beef is cooked, remove from the oven, place cheese on top of burger and place back in the oven for 1 minute if desired
Remove the cooked burger patties from the oven and build your burger with 1 square of cheese, lettuce and 1 pickle slice. Place toothpick through sliders if desired (this works great for a finger food/party!)
