Chipotle Bacon Sliders (gluten and grain free)

  • Author: Katja from the Savory Lotus
  • Yield: 9 small burgers 1x


  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced into thin rounds
  • 2 TBS butter, ghee (like this), or coconut oil (like this)
  • 1 pound ground meat
  • 4 strips of precooked bacon
  • 1 tsp unrefined sea salt (I use this one)
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder (like this)
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder (like this one)
  • 1 tsp cumin powder (like this)
  • 1 TBS butter, ghee, or coconut oil for cooking burgers
  • 1 avocado
  • lime juice
  • unrefined sea salt


  • a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce
  • lettuce for garnish



  1. Melt the ghee, butter, or coconut oil on medium heat. Add onion rounds and saute slowly until golden brown. Push the onions around a bit to make sure they cook evenly. You can add a tablespoon of water if they begin to stick to pan. Mine usually take 20-25 minutes.
  2. Mash together avocado, lime, and salt in a small bowl. Add optional hot sauce for some heat. Set aside.
  3. Combine ground meat, chopped bacon, salt, and spices in a medium bowl. Mix to combine. Form into 9 small patties.
  4. Heat 1 TBS of fat of choice in skillet on medium to medium high heat. Cook patties 4-5 minutes on each side, or until cooked the way you like it.
  5. Serve over a bed of fresh lettuce. Top with caramelized onions and avocado.
