1 extra large zucchini (or 2 medium/large), cut into 16 1/2inch-slices
3 tablespoon Pine River Spicy Beer Cheese Spread, divided
1 lbs. lean ground beef or turkey
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
Salt & Pepper to taste
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 or turkey and all seasonings; stir until well combined. Shape your ground beef or turkey into 8 equal-sized mini-patties, about 1-inch thick.
Gently pat zucchini rounds dry with paper towels.
Grill sliced zucchini rounds until slightly charred, about 1-2 minutes per side. Too cold to grill? Use a George Foreman Grill or a grill pan!
Set zucchini aside on a plate.
Add burger patties to the grill and sear each side until nicely golden, about 2-4 minutes. Flip to the other side, then add the cheese spread. Continue to cook until the beef is done to your liking and cheese is melted
Assemble your burger sliders and serve immediately. Enjoy!
