There's something about a slider that makes me happy. Such a tidy little burger.
Last summer, the burger award went to the Southwestern Turkey Burgers. I feel like this year, the glory will go to the sun dried tomato and feta turkey sliders. Such a mouth full. And so delicious. For reals.
You might look at this one strangely. Brandon sure did. Five sliders later, he decided that he was a fan.
This recipe will just be for the actual burgers. The bread I used could probably be tweeked. I was in a rush at the store and didn't do a whole lot of label comparing. The bread was good (cobble stone wheat hogies cut into three pieces) but it was six points for a loaf. Probably could've done something for less points.
Enough about bread. Here're (is that a word?) the sliders!
Sun Dried Tomato and Feta Turkey Sliders
adapted from Pickey Palate
1 tbl olive oil
1 lb extra lean ground turkey
1/2 cup of crumbled reduced fat feta cheese
1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes in oil, drained well and chopped
1/2 cup fresh spinach, chopped
salt and pepper
Combine turkey, feta, sun dried tomatoes, spinach, salt, and pepper. Divide the mixture into twelve equal patties.
Heat olive oil in a large pan. It might need a little extra cooking spray to keep it from sticking to the pan. That might be gross, or unsafe, but it's just how I rolled.
Anyway. Add the patties to the pan, cook them for about 5 minutes on each side or until the are done.
Serving size 1 patty (makes 12)
Points plus 2
So I took one wheat hogie (worth six points plus), cut it into three equal pieces, and had three little sliders.
It's worth mentioning that the blog that I got this recipe from suggests that you pair these sliders with a sun dried tomato mayonnaise. I refrained from this but it sure does look good.
It's also worth mentioning that "tomato" is a hard word for me to spell. I always want to put an "e" on the end.
That is all.
