Southwestern Spinach Sliders 1

Southwestern Spinach Sliders

Serves: 3 (2 burgers each)

Happy Friday! I hope you had a great (short) week! As most of you know, I have been working a crazy amount of hours, which means meal prep is very important every weekend! I have been on a huge spinach kick lately, but needed a flavorful way to change it up! These little (bunless) sliders were the perfect way! They are easy to pack and taste amazing warm or cold! I hope you enjoy them! Have a great day! 🙂

These were the perfect mini meal! They had the amazing southwestern flavor, melty cheese and tons of nutrients from the spinach! These are definitely going to be a regular part of my weekly meal prep.

  • I came across a blog yesterday that talked about spinach pancakes (please, forgive me, if it was yours... :) ). Granted, I've never actually had them, but they looked appealing and certainly piqued my curiosity.

  • Hmm these sound really interesting the only thing that worries me is the taste? :) assuming they do taste good though as otherwise you wouldn't have shared the recipe.

  • This is a great idea! I love spinach (my favorite is to dump warmed leftovers on spinach and cause it to wilt a little bit, or to include it in egg scrambles or green smoothies!). You're packing a ton of it in here - thanks!
