  1. Heat olive oil in skillet on med
  2. Slice onions and mushrooms, add to the hot olive oil and cook until onions are clear.
  3. Mix beef and all spices (including liquid smoke), make 5 to 6 small patties. The spices make it easy to make fairly thin patties, Mine are usually 3-4 inches in diameter before cooking.
  4. Once onions are clear, dump the onion/mushroom mix over into a small bowl and add the balsamic vinegar.
  5. Add the coconut oil to the pan your onion/mushroom mix came out of and cook for 3 minutes on each side.
  6. Once patties are done cooking, place a slice of cheese on each one and divide the onion mushroom mix, placing a portion on top each slice of cheese.
  7. Cover for 1-2 minutes or until cheese is hot and "melty"
  8. Serve each slider on a leaf of lettuce topped with a bit of prepared mustard!
