Open-Faced Turkey Sliders

Today while making changes to my new blog, my daughter began complaining about how "STARVING" she was - as if she didn't just have snack at school and again when she came home.  I promised her that as soon as I finished my last post, I would head to the kitchen and whip something up in a flash.  Although I wasn't quite sure what I was going to make.  After perusing my refrigerator, I found some leftover turkey meat from a spaghetti recipe that I had created a few days ago (which will be posted soon), & voila:  Open-faced turkey sliders and Sweet Potato "Fries"!!!

(Original Recipe) / Makes 4 sliders

  • 1/2 lb Ground Turkey (93/7)
  • 2 cloves Garlic, chopped
  • 1/8 cup Sweet Onion, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher Salt
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Seasoning Salt, to taste
  • Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 slices Leafy Romaine Lettuce
  • Mild Cheddar Cheese slices
  • Mustard
  • Tomato, sliced
  • 4 slices Organic 100% Whole Wheat Bread (use lettuce wrap for low-carb/gluten-free options)

  1. Add chopped garlic, onion, pepper, and salt to ground turkey and mix (with hands or utensil) until well blended.
  2. Lightly coat saucepan with Olive Oil (nonstick pan or grill is ideal)
  3. Form patties with hands and place in saucepan (then lightly sprinkle with seasoning salt) - turning occasionally
  4. Cook until no longer pink in the middle - place cheese slices on each patty when almost done
  5. Toast Whole Wheat Bread & spread with mustard
  6. Top Toast with turkey patty, sliced tomato, and lettuce
  7. Enjoy!

*Serve with Sweet Potato "Fries" or a side salad
