  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 slices mozzarella cheese
  • Slider Buns


  1. Mix the sausage together with the chopped olives and form (5) 3 oz. patties.
  2. Meanwhile in a saucepan, combine the tomato sauce with the cinnamon, garlic powder, cumin and salt and simmer for 15 minutes over medium heat.
  3. Heat up a large skillet and spray with non-stick cooking spray. You can also cook these on the grill or a grill pan.
  4. Cook the sliders for 4 minutes on one side and then flip for another 3 on the other side.
  5. Place a slice of mozzarella cheese on each slider then place the lid on the skillet to melt the cheese.
  6. Put each slider onto a bun, spoon some of the tomato sauce on and then the top of the bun.
