Turkey Sliders

Looking for a family friendly dinner? I found this recipe while looking for low cost family meals. It's adapted from Italian Turkey Sliders with Honey Dijon Mayo. These are tagged as quick, and I mean they're quick! They actually baked for less time than the fries I cooked with them with.
These were a big hit at my house and healthier than ground beef, so I think they'll surface again. I think next time I'll bake my own slider buns as well.

Dinner Time! Sliders and Fries.

Turkey Sliders
You Need: (yield: 8-10 mini burgers)
10 ounces (250-300g) lean ground turkey
1 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated
1 tbsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
freshly ground black pepper
dinner or slider rolls (I bought mine from Cobb's Bread)

Slider Patties

To Do:
1) Preheat oven to 350F. Combine ground turkey, cheese and all seasonings. Mix together well.
2) Shape turkey mixture into small (8-10) patties and place on baking sheet. 
3) Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cooked through. Do not overcook.Cool for one minute and serve on bun.

I served my sliders with stone ground mustard, fresh avocado slices, arugula and a pickle. They were totally tasty and a nice lean alternative. We also recently tried ground turkey with spaghetti which was new to me. Any lean substitution reader recommendations? Next time I plan on using cajun style seasoning instead of basil and oregano, so a nice pepper jack cheese or chipotle mayo may work as well. Happy cooking!


  1. I made them! I didn't want to eat the buns/bread so I baked it all in a loaf container. Worked great! Tasted good!

  2. It's a tasty looking dish that I think my little guy will love. Thanks for the post.
