If you're in the mood for grillin' out this weekend, I recommend you give this recipe a try! We had these burgers over Memorial Day weekend, and they were definitely a hit!
Bleu Cheese Turkey Sliders
First, make sure that you have some mini-buns handy. We prefer these King's Hawaiian Sweet Rolls. Beware, they're addictive!
For the meat, combine one pound of ground lean turkey with approximately 1/3 cup of bleu cheese, 1 tsp paprika, salt and pepper. Divide the meat into eight sections and form each ball into a thick patty.
If you're like me and you have a grill-obsessed man in your life, then this part is easy - just sit back and relax while the guy grills the meat.
We have a nifty flexiblegrilling net that works perfectly for grilling sliders or vegetables. Flipping has never been so easy, I bet even a girl could do it! Okay, I probably took that too far. It's always best to act impressed by their grilling skills, ladies - make them feel special, and they'll continue making you good food.
So once again, while the guy was grilling on the patio, I was in the kitchen preparing the rest of the meal.
A few weeks ago, I made some delicious homemade pickles. I sliced pickling cucumbers and added onion, white vinegar, sugar, sea salt, mustard seed, and pepper for flavor. Then I closed up the container and stuck it in the freezer for a couple weeks until the pickles were just right!
Atop the Hawaiian rolls, I added the following condiments: mustard, avocado, tomatoes, and homemade pickles.
Insert a bleu cheese turkey burger, and now you have the world's tallest sliders!
I also made fries, or chips, whichever name you prefer. I thinly sliced several baking potatoes, tossed them with olive oil, salt, pepper, and ground flaxseed - then baked them at 425 until they were crispy.
With a smidge of ketchup. these fries were quite tasty!
Oh, and did I mention that Austin also threw some corn on the cob on the grill? What a guy...and what a meal!
