Ingredients

For Beets:

  • Cooked beets sliced about 3/4 inch thick*
  • 1 heaping tablespoon flour per slice
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon milk or water
  • 1 heaping tablespoon panko breadcrumbs per slice

For Sliders

  • Slider buns lightly toasted
  • Boursin cheese
  • Pickled onions
  • Avocado slices
  • Arugula or mixed greens

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment or foil. Set aside.
  • Dredge the beets by first tossing in flour, shaking off excess, then dunking into the egg mixture.
  • Let the excess egg drip off, then toss immediately into the panko bread crumbs until completely coated. Place on prepared baking pan.
  • Repeat with all beet slices. Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the panko is golden.

To Assemble Sliders:

  • Spread Boursin on the slider buns. Place a crispy beet slice on the bun. Top with some pickled red onion, avocado and greens of your choice.

Notes

Instead of buying raw beets and roasting or steaming them {which I find messy and time consuming}, I used ready-to-eat beets from Trader Joe's. They can be found in the produce section sealed in plastic. You can cook your own beets or buy them prepared for easier preparation.
I didn't specify the amounts for this recipe because it depends on how many sliders you want to make. A large beet can be sliced into 3-4 slider "steaks." This recipe is easy to make for one or multiply for a crowd.
This recipe was inspired by my visit to 5 Church in Charleston, South Carolina.
