BBQ Turkey & Sweet Potato Sliders

These sweet potato sliders with lean ground turkey are a recipe that is as nutritious as tasty!

The following ingredients will be enough to make four sliders. Get 6oz of lean ground meat of your choice, 150g of sweet potatoes, arugula and spinach, BBQ sauce, and spices.

Simply slice sweet potatoes into thick pieces to make the buns. Place them on a baking sheet and bake the potato slices in the oven at 405F. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the buns are fully cooked and at the right firmness level.

Some people prefer them soft, but I prefer the firmer version for this recipe. Be sure to let them cool before you assemble the burger and start eating so you don’t get burnt.

Season the lean ground turkey and make mini patties with your hands. Cook the meat in the skillet on medium heat and leave them to cool down for a couple of minutes.

Now, we will assemble these patties. On one of the sweet potato slices, add arugula and spinach, turkey pattie, and a tablespoon of BBQ sauce. Top it with the second sweet potato slice. Repeat the process for your remaining sliders. Serve your sliders and enjoy! Just that easy!

Delicious bbq turkey sliders are one of my favorite treats, and when you try them you will know why.
