Turkey sliders, a quick meal or snack using basic ingredients that most should have in their kitchen.
♥ Chef Ann’s ‘Turkey Sliders’ note:
I recommend broiling vs. frying, but that is your choice.
“…broiling is the best way to cook some of your meat, fish and poultry, provided that you do it in the a stove.” Source: ‘What’s Healthier, Broiled, Grilled, Or Fried Food?’
- ¾ pounds ground turkey
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper (optional)
- dash of paprika (optional)
- ½ cup of mild shredded cheese (optional)
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat oven at 350°
You will need a grill skillet/pan or a flat pan similar to a cookie sheet.
Preparation before cooking
- Make sure the rack in oven is at the top position (closest to the top cooking element)
- Add turkey, black pepper, garlic powder and salt in a bowl. With a fork mash and blend ingredients very well.
- Scoop 2 heaping tablespoons of seasoned turkey and put in the palm of your hand and use both hands to shape into a round ball.
- Once you have formed the ball, press into a patty (thickness is your option), but make sure that you do not make it too flat, you are not forming a typical burger.
- Repeat this process until you have formed 6 nicely formed turkey sliders (patties).
- Sprinkle a dash of paprika on each side and lay on a flat pan or grill.
- Change the oven temperature to broil.
- Place the turkey sliders on a grill or flat pan and place in the oven and cook for 3 minuets on each side then remove from oven.
- You are now ready to dress your sliders with cheese (if desired) and serve. Yum delicious!

♥ Chef Ann’s ‘ground turkey’ Tip:
I prefer the “Jennie-O” brand when purchasing ground turkey.
Ground turkey is a terrific change of pace for those of you that normally choose beef.
