These yummy turkey sliders have a bit of a kick. I made a delicious sauce to go with these burgers. It’s mayo mixed with Frank’s Redhot Wing Sauce. It’s got tanginess from the vinegar and heat from the cayenne that will keep you wanting more!
I love to cook with turkey. Yes, it’s low in fat but it doesn’t have to lack in flavor. I mixed in a half packet of onion dip into the turkey meat giving these burgers a nice season with chopped scallions and some black olives. Mmmmmh, so good!
Here’s what ya need:
Lean Turkey meat
Slider burger buns
Half a packet of onion dip
1/3 cup of diced scallions
1/3 cup of chopped black olives(the pre-pitted ones in a can)
1/4 tsp of black pepper
Pinch of salt
1/3 cup of bread crumbs(I used panko; it’s just dried breadcrumbs in a package)
1/2 cup of mayo
1/4 cup of Frank’s Redhot Wing Sauce(Add extra wing sauce if you want more of a kick to your burger)
Cheese(I used shredded cheddar cheese; just add a small pinch after the turkey burger is cooked)
Place the tomatoes and sauce into the fridge.
Give this a quick mix with a fork.
Have a large plate or pan nearby so you can place your raw burger patties on it.
Once the turkey seasoning is all mixed well, add the raw meat. With clean hands, mix it all together. Form 2- to 2&1/2-inch rounds, then press firmly creating a small patty. Place these on to your designated plate for raw meat. I was able to make a total of ten small patties.
The total time to cook is about 7 to 8 minutes. Give them a flip after 2 minutes to avoid burning, give another flip after two minutes and so on to keep from overcooking one side. Also, use a lid to contain the heat. Cook the meat thoroughly. If you have to cut a patty in half to check, do so. I can usually tell by gently pressing the patty and seeing clear fat ooze out as opposed to reddish fat.
After the burgers are cooked, place a small pinch of shredded cheddar or a small slice if you are using sliced cheese onto the patties.
After the buns are ready, place the lettuce first on the bottom half of the bun and then the burger patty, this helps to avoid a soggy bun from the burger fat, then add the tomato slice on top of the patty. With a spoon, ladle a small scoop of wing sauce and mayo mix on the inside of the top bun, add a little on top of the tomato.
Trust me, these are gullet worthy!
