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.
