Savory Gourmet Sliders

featuring Núñez de Prado Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Nutritious, nutty quinoa and golden grated sweet potato combine for light, crispy savory bites. Perfect for an elegant breakfast, lunch, brunch or hors d'oeuvres.

INGREDIENTS (makes 10 sliders)

  • 1 pound ground lamb or turkey
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 2 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons spice rub
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons Núñez de Prado Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 bunch watercress or arugula
  • 10 dinner rolls, toasted or grilled


Mix together the ingredients for the olive salsa, set aside.

Mix together the ground meat, onion, feta, seasoning and black pepper. Form mixture into 10 patties. Brush each patty with some olive oil to prevent sticking and grill or pan-fry the patties over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side.

Serve each slider on a roll with some watercress and a spoonful of olive salsa.


For a vegetarian option, grill a baby Portobello mushroom that has been brushed with Núñez de Prado Extra Virgin Olive Oil and sprinkled with spice rub.
