Turkey Burger Sliders:
I adopted this recipe from George Stella’s Livin’ Low Carb, Kinife and Fork Turkey Burgers. We don’t live low carb, plus I really like these as little sliders served on sweet Hawaiian rolls…and Addie loves them served this way. Feel free to check out the original recipe. I prepare as below.
2 1/2 pounds ground turkey
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1 tablespoon Ketchup
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Pinch cayenne pepper
1 large egg, beaten
Hawaiian sweet rolls
Lindberg Snider Porterhouse & Roast Seasoning
Garnish (anything you like on your burgers – but you have to have the bacon!):
ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise
bacon slices (yum!!! makes the burger)
Make the Burgers: Mix all the ingredients together with your hands, in a bowl.
Divide the meat mixture into equal-sized patties, about 2-3 tablespoons each.
Heat oil/pam in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, cook the burgers (seasoned heavily with Porterhouse Seasoning), turning once (season again, I like to add a piece of bacon at this point on top of each slider patty with a piece of cheese melted over it), until lightly browned and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes per side. I use a piece of tented foil over my grill pan to help keep the heat even. (A instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of the thickest burger should read at least 165 degrees F.)
Serve the burgers on Hawaiian rolls with the garnishes of your preference. Yum!!
