Cheap and Cheerful Cooking: Feta Sun-Dried Tomato Turkey Burger Sliders
I am obsessed with sliders. What is more perfect than a tiny burger on a tiny bun? Well, maybe a tiny milkshake alongside and a tiny order of onion rings, too?
I saw this recipe on the Picky Palate, a great website filled with recipes for dressed up comfort food.
Feta Sun-Dried Tomato Turkey Burger Sliders
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, jarred in olive oil
1/2 cup fresh baby spinach leaves, chopped
Pinch of Kosher salt, fresh cracked pepper and Lawry’s Garlic Salt with Parsley
Sun-Dried Tomato Mayonnaise
1 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes, packed in olive oil, drained
Baby hamburger buns or dinner rolls, split and warmed
2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves
1. Heat oil into a large skillet over medium heat. Place turkey, feta, sun dried tomato, spinach and seasonings into a mixing bowl. Mix until just combined. Form 1/4 Cup little patty’s and place onto a cookie sheet. Once all are formed, place batches in hot skillet. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown and cooked through.
2. Place mayonnaise and tomatoes into a bowl; mix to combine. Spread over insides of warm rolls. Layer bottom roll with spinach and the burger. Close with top roll and eat
Makes about 12 little sliders
