Turkey Sliders





Turkey Sliders – Never thought I would actually be making this in my kitchen. Sliders or burgers has always beef as the protein but with a pretty high red meat consumption in the house along with cold days where the grill can’t be fired up, I figured to try this recipe by Alton Brown. I am actually starting to like ground turkey a lot, most of the time Pat thinks it’s ground chicken in his meatballs or Thai stir fry 🙂 Sounds like I am feeding a kid.

This taste different from the usual sliders I have had and the more I taste it, the more I want it. So much so, that a recipe that feeds 6 only feeds 2 people! Now, I usually make some sweet potato fries to fair along and it has been a staple in the house.
