Dear Credit Card Thief,

We need to chat some things over. I’m not sure how you got my credit card number, but it was very rude of you to steal. Stealing leads to bad karma. Bad karma leads to a terrible life. That’s just how it is.

It was particularly dumb of you to book a hotel in some amazing getaway location. If you were smart, and read my blog, you would know that there is no way I have $1,000+ to spend on my credit card. I got recipes to create bro. So even though you were smart enough to get my credit card number, you were an idiot to think I had actual money. AND you were selfish enough to not invite me along with you on this wonderful getaway. You’re an asshole.

Hugs and Kisses,

Your Credit Card Owner.

Anywho. I have some bad news people. Ok, so I have been trying my best to always comment back to every single person, but my life has become a bit busier at this point. SO, I will not always be responding back to comments, unless there is a specific question. That definitely doesn’t mean I don’t read all of them and appreciate every single one, I just have to make sure I sleep more than 4 hours a night. I have to. Or I cry a lot. And emotional basket case Juli is not fun to be around.

I wish I was eating a turkey leg right now.

Are you still confused with what leftovers means? Come on people, get with the program. Leftovers is a play on words. These are old recipes from the archives that I remade so the pictures wouldn’t suck ass as much. I used to take pictures with my phone at 11pm at night so I’m trying harder at this point. Taking pictures with a real camera, in the day, and reminding you how delicious even gross looking recipes can be! Ya dig?


Leftovers: Cinnamon Chipotle Sliders

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 3-4 1x


  • 1 lb TX Bar Organics Grass Fed Ground Beef
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1.5 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1.5 tablespoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced-I like mine in circles!
  • 1 package of thinly sliced mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil


  1. Grab a large mixing bowl and add your beef and spices. Mix well to combine.
  2. Heat a medium skillet up and add your coconut oil. Add in your onions and stir a bit to help cover the onions in oil, then add a tablespoon or so of water and cover to help steam the onions.
  3. As the onions begin to brown, grab out a large skillet and add your olive oil to warm up under medium-high heat for your sliders.
  4. Form your sliders into small patties. Mine were about 2-3 inches wide once i pressed them down. Add to hot skillet and cook for 4-5 minutes on both sides.
  5. As the sliders are cooking, keep stirring around the onions to help make sure they don’t burn. When they have cooked for about 6-8 minutes, add mushrooms and re-cover with a tablespoon of water.
  6. Once the sliders are done cooking, set them aside while you finish the onions and mushrooms.
  7. Once the mushrooms and onions are almost cooked through, add your balsamic vinegar and mix to combine.
  8. Top your cooked sliders off with some ground mustard (why the hell wouldn’t you use mustard) and the onions and mushrooms. This meal will not disappoint!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Some jerkoff stole my cc number 2 years ago. Dip$hit Thief Person used it to purchase $350 worth of crap from a company that makes care packages specifically for people in PRISON (um hello Bank of America, you freeze my card on me when I go to Vegas but you don’t think “INMATE PACKAGING UNLIMITED” looks suspicious?) When I called it in to report it stolen, they nerve to ask me “well Ma’am, do you know anyone in prison?”

    My response, “I work for a law enforcement agency- so nobody other than the people I helped put there.”

    Thievery sucks. Your blog rules, however. 🙂

  2. Totally understand about not responding to every single comment. If you sleeping means you blogging and giving me delicious recipes to eat, I’m totally cool with that. Sorry about the credit card – major bummer the thief didn’t invite you!

  3. Thief prob didn’t invite you because he got a look at your blog and realized you can totally kick his/her a$$! =)

  4. I made these last week from your archive and they totally rock! Love the cinnamon in them, makes for a totally different burger experience.

    Also I just ordered my paleomg shirt and headband yesterday, can’t wait for them to come in!!!!!

    1. I recieved my order yesterday….wow that was quick! Ordered Monday morning, in my mailbox Wednesday afternoon, AWESOME!

  5. Dang, dude. These look soooo good!! & I was gonna say I have no idea how you keep up with commenting back to everyone- you’ve gotten SO popular!!! I might feel a little less loved temporarily (lol), but I’ll get over it, as long as you keep posting recipes. =)

  6. P.S. I was running yesterday and my hair was being totally stupid & I was like, “I really wish I had a PaleOMG headband right now…” I just don’t know if I’ll look as cute in it as you do! haha

  7. First off…..THANK YOU…..you have saved me! I LOVE LOVE LOVE food…I love to cook it, eat it and feed people it makes me happy. That being said I recently did Whole 30 for the second time….the first time it was touch and go as to whether anyone around me would survive…I was SICK of eating pork chops and salad….this website has made me SO HAPPY. I can eat the recipes on whole 30. I can still have people over and make them yummy fabulous tasting food….and not plot their deaths because they are eating something awesome I made and I am once again having pork chops and salad! So again THANK YOU. I enjoy reading your blogs…they make me laugh out loud at work and I feel the need to reread them to everyone. Happy hump day!

  8. Okay, these rock. I used apple cider vinegar instead, cause balsamic vinegar makes me think of dirty socks. 🙂 It was amazing! 🙂

  9. LOVED this! Sadly I totally overcooked my burgers but it still tasted awesome. They kinda looked like little hockey pucks..oops. Threw in half an avocado and sweet potato chips on the side and I was in heaven. I had to restrain myself from eating the entire onion though. mmmmmmm thank you!

  10. Just made this with turkey because that is what I had. Really really good. Will be a staple here. Thank you!!!

  11. I made these last night and as are all your recipes I’ve tried so far they are fantastic! I never thought that much cinnamon would be so awesome in a burger it was almost like eating bread….sort of… I pretended… But they really were amazing! Keep the awesome recipes coming!!!
    Also, not sure where I should post this, but I was wondering if you have ever done fried okra? That’s the only fried food I really miss and I haven’t tried it yet paleo style. I don’t know what flour would be best and I’m new to breading and frying stuff. If you get a chance I’d love to see it on the menu soon! Thanks 🙂

  12. Oh, my! These are delicious. I made them early in my Whole30 challenge, when eating a regular burger recipe would have felt like deprivation (of the bun, the sugary ketchup, etc.) They are a bit too spicy for me, so I have cut back on the chipotle & chili powders, but still…Yum! These are now a go-to item for us, and I have a bottle of the premade mix ready anytime there’s extra ground beef lying around.

    Oh, and I wrote about these sliders here: http://preview.tinyurl.com/cinnamon-chipotle.

  13. WOW! These are terrific! This was my inaugural “we are eating beef again, oh yes we are” meal. Outstanding! Thank you Juli. I don’t know if you’re the first or only chef to put cinnamon into beef patties, but to me you are–therefore you are a genious. Score!

  14. Thank you so much for this yummy slider! My fussy 5 & 7 year old girls devourer them! Its a keeper.

  15. I made these last night and the flavor was lovely! ( i omitted the onion mushroom mixture to save time, but will probably try in the future).

  16. Hi Juli,
    I came across this recipe earlier this past week and decided to go for it last night. Holy mackerel! They were delicious!

    One questions for you, though:
    Would you recommend adding an egg to the raw ground beef to make the patties stick together more? Or should I just get a little less lean beef than I used last night.
