Lean Turkey Patty Preparation

The process of creating these Turkey Sliders is a culinary journey that yields a fusion of tastes and textures, with every mouthful serving as evidence of the delectable combination of components. The 93% lean ground turkey, a low and high-protein substitute for beef, serves as the sliders’ basis and gives your recipe a healthy start. The turkey patties, which are beautifully seasoned with cracked pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning, guarantee a blast of delicious delight with every bite.

Creamy Mayonnaise Sauce

A rich and creamy mayonnaise sauce that combines the strong flavor of minced garlic, olive oil mayonnaise, and dried oregano perfectly balances the sliders. The sliders are elevated to a gourmet level with this optional sauce, which lets you tailor the taste profile to your preferences.

Toasted Brioche Buns

Perfectly toasted small brioche hamburger buns with lightly browned edges from either a pan or the oven are the first step in the art of assembling these sliders. Gently shape the patties to prevent them from becoming tough. Sear each side of the patties until they are perfectly done in a hot pan.

Assembly and Garnishes

To bring everything together, a layer of richness is added to the sliders by topping them with the delicious mayonnaise with garlic. Each slider is crisped up and revitalized with a touch of red onion and fresh baby arugula. Not only are these turkey sliders delicious, but they are also a healthy choice since they balance lean protein with colorful, fresh garnishes. These sliders encourage you to experience the delight of a well-prepared and health-conscious feast, whether they are enjoyed on their own or combined with baked chips or a side salad.

Health Benefits of Turkey Meat 

The main component in these sliders, turkey, offers more benefits than just lean protein. Turkey meat is well known for its health advantages and is a great source of niacin, vitamin B6, phosphorus, and selenium, among other important elements. Turkey provides a heart-healthy alternative to typical beef without sacrificing flavor because of its lower fat level. The taste of the sliders is enhanced and given a delicious richness by the addition of garlic powder, onion powder, and Italian seasoning. Turkey, a poultry alternative, boosts immunity, supports healthy skin and eyesight, and generally enhances well-being.

Turkey Burger Sliders Wrap-up

They are topped with fresh arugula and red onion and are a beautiful blend of culinary creativity and nutritional consciousness. Savor the combination of tastes with the knowledge that every mouthful adds to a fulfilling and health-conscious eating experience.

Turkey Sliders – Savory Bites of Delight

Ingredients

8 Servings
Serving Size:102g
* Optional Substitution Note
  • 8 mini brioche hamburger buns
    • use your preferred slider bun
  • 1lb 93% lean ground turkey
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons cracked pepper
Garlicky Mayonnaise (optional)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 6 tablespoons reduced fat olive oil mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • cracked pepper to taste
Garnish
  • fresh baby arugula
  • red onion, thin slices

Steps

Step 1

Mix together the ingredients for the sauce, season to taste, and then set aside.

Step 2

Set a carbon steel or cast iron skillet on medium-high heat.

Step 3

Slice the buns in half. Lightly spray with olive oil and if desired, lightly sprinkle with garlic powder.

Once the skillet is hot, add the buns face down in the skillet.  Toast for 3 – 5 minutes or until the edges have lightly browned.

Alternatively, set oven to 350F/177C.  Slice the buns open and spray with oil.  Then place them in a baking tray face up.  Place in the oven and toast for 3 – 5 minutes or until browned/toasted to your liking.

Step 4

In a bowl, gently mix together ingredients for the burger using your hands – overmixing can make for rubbery, tough burger. Use an ice cream scoop or spoon to evenly make eight 2oz sliders.

Step 5

Wipe the pan clean if needed, spray with oil then add the patties. As you add the patties, press down on each one to flatten.  This is the ONLY time you press down on them while the burger meat is still cold and the “juices” have not warmed to flow yet.

Since this is turkey, you want to cook it all the way through, not medium rare or rare like beef.

Cook sliders on each side for 3 – 5 minutes or until sear marks appear.
