GINGER-PINEAPPLE TURKEY SLIDERS
1 pound ground turkey
1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs
1 egg white
1 tablespoon white onion, diced really small
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon Chinese 5-spice
a dash ground pepper
1 can pineapple chunks
Gouda cheese slices
Mix first 7 ingredients together and form into small patties.
Grill over med-high for about 4 minutes on each side.
Place cheese over top and grill for another 2 minutes (gouda cheese doesn't melt that quickly).
Place on toasted bun, put a few leaves of spinach and a few chunks and top with other half of bun.
Eat all 8 sliders. Why not? I almost did--but my family wanted to eat too. =)
~~Fresh bread crumbs~~ This is actually really easy. Take some bread, put it in your food processor and pulse for 30 seconds--and whooola! Magic happens.
~~Toasted buns~~The ones I used were homemade. Just regular white rolls, with crushed rosemary and sea salt cooked on the tops (like Pioneer Woman's rolls). Then I sliced them down the middle, buttered each side, and put them on a med-high skillet, butter side down, until golden brown and crispy around the edges.
~~Pineapple~~ This would be awesome with fresh pineapple, cut into rings and grilled with the patties. I had non available, otherwise I would have--but next time for sure!
This would be easy to make into "regular" size burgers. This recipe would make 4--so make sure you double or triple it!
