Tostone Sliders (Paleo, Whole30, AIP)

  • Author: Michelle
  • Yield: 8 sliders 1x



For the sliders 

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper (omit for AIP)

For the tostones

  • 2 green plantains
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt

For topping

  • 12 tbsp avocado oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup onions, diced
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 avocado, mashed
  • Arugula


For the burgers

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Form the ground beef into small sliders (about 8) and season on both sides.
  3. Place on the baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes (or until cooked through), flipping halfway. See notes for other cooking methods.

For the tostones

  1. Peel the plantains with a knife and slice them into about 1-1.5″ slices.
  2. Heat the oil in a large, deep frying pan and fry the plantain slices (flipping once) until lightly browned and softened. Do this in two-three batches if necessary.
  3. Carefully remove the plantains from the heat and allow to slightly cool. Use the flat bottom of a drinking glass to press the plantains down. Do this one by one and set them aside.
  4. Return the flattened plantains to the pan and lightly salt. Fry for 3-4 minutes or until crispy.

For the veggie toppings 

  1. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat.
  2. Sautee the garlic until lightly fragrant, then add in the onions and mushrooms. Season with salt and cook until softened.
  3. Set aside when cooked.

To assemble

  1. Assemble the sliders with one tostone, one slider, veggies, avocado, and arugula, and then finishing with another tostone. You’ll have about 8 sliders in total!


You can also grill or fry the burgers! This method is easier and allows you to focus on the tostones while simultaneously cooking the burgers.  ????
