Get Your Burger On: Sneaking Veggies in Their Sliders

We're entering the home stretch for National Burger Month and have ordered up everything from pizza and Mexican-style chicken sliders to a mural meal that took the burger off the bun and put it over pasta. Inspired by everything burger-related, LilSugar reader senorita shared her method for including veggies in her lil ones' favorite meal.

My kids actually really like burgers and it is never any trouble to get them to eat one but getting them to eat a veggie alongside is nearly impossible. So, I have been tricking them and adding veggies to my burgers before I cook them. Depending on what veggies are in season, I will add them raw to my food processor to chop them up a bit. Mix it in with hamburger meat and add a little panko bread crumbs to keep it all together. My kids love the burgers and never complain that they are eating baby chard, squash and bell peppers. I usually put a little spinach pesto on the bun (they don't realize it is spinach they just love the way it tastes). The mini buns I have been buying at Trader Joe's are the perfect size for them. They chow down on these sliders with no hesitation or complaining.

See senorita's entire recipe, including step-by-step photo instructions, here.
