One of the easiest ways to make three perfect slider buns? Cut up a hot dog bun! This version is beefy, cheesy, and Philly-licious!
1/4 cup thinly sliced onion
1/4 cup sliced mushrooms
1/2 tsp. chopped garlic
4 oz. thinly sliced raw lean filet beefsteak (see HG Tip!)
Dash each salt and black pepper
1 light hot dog bun
1 slice fat-free American cheese
Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat on the stove. Add onion, mushrooms, and garlic. Stirring often, cook until slightly browned, 3 - 4 minutes. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
Remove skillet from heat, re-spray with nonstick spray, and bring to medium-high heat. Add beef and season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 1 minute per side, flipping gently, until fully cooked. Remove beef from the skillet and set aside.
Split open the hot dog bun without separating the halves. Pile veggies onto one side and top with the beef. Tear cheese into 2 strips, and evenly place over the beef. Gently close the sandwich to keep filling from escaping.
Remove skillet from heat, re-spray with nonstick spray, and return to medium-high heat. Carefully place sandwich in the skillet with one of the bun's flat sides down. Cook until cheese has melted and bun is lightly browned, about 1 minute per side, flipping carefully and pressing down with a spatula to seal.
Using a serrated knife, evenly slice into 3 pieces. Eat up!

HG Tip! Slightly freeze the beef before slicing it -- this will make thinly slicing it easier!
