Turkey Burger Sliders

Let me preface this post by saying this is one of the best meals I have made. I first tried them out earlier in the week and we liked them so much we decided to serve them when we had guests over last night. And to get Corey’s seal of approval is a priceless success for me!


  • Jennie-o extra-lean ground turkey (1.25 lbs)
  • 1 stalk of celery, chopped
  • 2 green onions (white and green parts)
  • 1 tablespoon of Chipotle Tabasco sauce
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper (or as desired per how spicy you like your food)
  • Handful of fresh basil leaves
  • Optional: cheese of your choice (we used grated sharp cheddar)
  • Mini pretzel buns (this is a crucial part of the recipe, the bun really makes the burger)
  • S&P to taste
  • Optional: caramelized onions – sweet yellow onion, olive oil, S&P
1. Pre-heat grill to medium-high heat
2. Combine ground turkey and remaining patty ingredients in a large bowl and gently mix. Form into small patties. Grill for 4-5 mins per side. The last minute or so add your basil leaves to the top and cover with grated cheese cook until cheese is melted.
3. If you want to get really fancy with it you can add some caramelized onions by heating about some olive oil over medium-high heat in a skillet and adding delicately sliced yellow onion. Season with S&P and saute until browned, about 15-20 you can do this while you are preparing the patties. Be sure to stir frequently so they don’t burn.Ā
