Turkey Sliders

Talk about something quick, easy and good for you! These turkey sliders are so tasty you may quit using beef! The texture of ground turkey meat is pretty odd and it definitely will need a little boost to keep it together. I treat it like I'm making a meatloaf. You'll be surprised that one 2 ounce burger is so filling...but you'll go ahead and go for two since they taste so good!

  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup minced onions
  • 1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. Parmesan cheese
  • Salt, pepper  & garlic salt seasoning to your taste
  • Baby spinach
  • Swiss cheese
  • Cooked onions (see below)
  • Wal-Mart brand Whole Wheat Dollar Rolls (from deli)
In a small bowl, mix all ingredients well. Pat out 8 mini burgers. 
(I ended up with 9 this time) Heat a large skillet up with 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium heat. 

Cook approximately 10 minutes on each side. Top with 1/2 slice of aged Swiss cheese and cover until melted.
While the sliders are cooking, fix the onions for topping.

1 onion, sliced in rings
1/4 stick butter
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp. sugar
Melt butter in a small skillet on medium heat. Break onion slices up into individual rings. Season with salt, pepper and sugar. Cook until color turns to a little brown on the edge.
Slice the rolls in half. We use a small amount of mayo and mustard; make a layer of baby spinach; place the burger on the spinach and top with cooked onions.

Serve these with oven baked fries and you have a good, tasty meal!
