Roasting the polenta, tomato and onion together saves time and concentrates the flavors in these colorful, fast, and easy gluten-free sliders. The spicy herb-garlic oil plays up their Italian side.

Ingredients

Directions

Special equipment: Parchment paper

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and coat with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine the oil, garlic, oregano and pepper flakes in a small bowl. Arrange the polenta, tomato and onion slices on the prepared baking sheets. Brush the tops of the polenta and vegetables with the herbed oil. Sprinkle the vegetables with 1/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper. Roast until the vegetables are soft and beginning to caramelize, about 25 minutes.

Gently combine the ground beef with 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a medium bowl. Shape into 8 patties about 2 1/2 inches across and 1/2 inch thick. Spray both sides with nonstick cooking spray. Heat a large nonstick skillet on high for two minutes and arrange the patties in the skillet spaced evenly apart. Reduce to medium high and cook for about 1 1/2 minutes per side for medium-rare. Allow patties to rest for 5 minutes before assembling sliders.

Assemble the sliders: On a work surface, place 8 polenta rounds herb-side down and top with 3 basil leaves, slightly overlapped on each. Top basil with a patty, tomato and onion slices. Sandwich with the remaining polenta rounds, herb-side up, and serve 2 sliders per person.
