Low Carb German Burger Sliders (Frikadellen)


  • 1 package LC German Pretzel Rolls
  • ½ pound ground beef
  • ½ pound ground pork
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 medium onion finely chopped
  • 1 LC Soft Baked Hamburger Roll or 2 slices LC Hearty White Bread
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos or soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
  • 1 tablespoon smoked sweet paprika
  • 2 tablespoons parsley minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup LC Seasoned Bread Crumbs for breading
  • Sliced cheese, lettuce, tomato if desired for topping
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil


  • Tear the LC Soft Baked Hamburger Roll or LC Hearty White Bread into pieces and soak them in a bowl with about ½ cup of water.
  • In a separate large bowl and whisk the egg with a fork. Add ground beef, ground pork, chopped onions, garlic, soy sauce, mustard, paprika, parsley, salt, and pepper.
  • Squeeze the water out of the LC Soft Baked Hamburger Roll and gently mix into the meat mixture. If the mixture is too wet, add a bit of LC Seasoned Bread Crumbs.
  • Shape the meat mixture into five patties about the size of the LC German Pretzel Roll.
  • Pour the LC Seasoned Bread Crumbs into a plate and coat each patty on both sides.
  • Preheat a skillet on the stove on medium-high heat and add the butter and olive oil.
  • When the oil and butter are hot, brown the patties on each side. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 9-10 minutes until they are cooked through to your liking.
  • Remove the patties and place them on a plate with a paper towel to drain excess grease.
  • Slice and toast the LC German Pretzel Rolls. Add desired toppings (lettuce, tomato, cheese – any low carb toppings you love) along with the burger patty and enjoy!
