Turkey Sliders

turkey sliders recipe, kosher by design, teens and 20-somethings, susie fishbein

Here’s something quick, good, and good for you too! The small size of these sliders makes them irresistible. Ground turkey is lean, which makes it a healthy choice, but it can tend toward the dry side. When experimenting on your own with ground turkey, make sure you add some kind of moisture, the way this recipe uses teriyaki sauce in the mix.
1 pound ground turkey, a blend of white and dark if possible
¼ cup teriyaki sauce
½ teaspoon dried thyme
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1⁄8 teaspoon dried sage
2 tablespoons olive oil
slider buns or hamburger buns
2 plum tomatoes, each sliced into 8 slices
½ cup plus 2 tablespoons favorite barbecue sauce
½ cup nondairy sour cream
toothpicks
1. Place the ground turkey into a large mixing bowl. Pour in the teriyaki sauce. Sprinkle in the thyme, garlic powder, black pepper, and sage. Using your hands, mix to distribute the spices.
2. Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large nonstick skillet. Scoop1 tablespoon of the turkey. Using wet hands, form a patty about the width of your buns. Repeat with remaining turkey. You should get 16 patties. Place into the hot pan. Cook for 1½ minutes per side. Do this in batches if they don’t all fit.
3. If you can’t find mini slider buns, make your own using a small round cookie cutter and hamburger buns. Dip the cookie cutter into warm water. Cut 2 mini buns from each hamburger bun.
4. Place a slider on each bun. Top with a tomato slice, a dollop of barbecue sauce, and parve sour cream. Top with the lid of the bun. Stick in a toothpick to secure.
5. Transfer to serving platter or plates.
