Turkey Burger Sliders





There's still plenty of grilling time this season. If you are burning out from doing beef hamburgers, here is a lighter version you might enjoy! To make sliders, shape the meat mixture to about the size of a large meatball, flatten, and make a thumbprint in the middle. May be made ahead, but refrigerate until you are ready to grill.

Purchase small size buns such as sesame seed, rye, or French rolls.


1 lb lean white ground turkey
1 T. finely chopped fresh parsley
1 t. olive oil
1 t. fresh lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. freshly ground black pepper

Sauce:

Mix together:
2 heaping T. light mayonnaise
1 T. chopped lemon balm
1/4 t. minced garlic
1 t. lemon juice

Toppings:
Bibb lettuce
Tomato
Cheese

1. Mix turkey and remaining ingredients lightly, except sauce, and form into small patties.

Grill until nice grill marks appear and meat is done, about 4 minutes per side, but make sure they are done through.

2. Toast buns. Spread bottom of bun with sauce, add a slice of tomato, a couple of basil leaves, and some Bibb lettuce. Add cheese if you desire, top with bun top and serve.
