Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 8-10 minutes
Yield: 5 servings
Serving size: 2 burgers
1¼ pounds ground turkey (minimum 90-10)
2 tablespoons sugar-free pickle relish
2 tablespoons steak sauce
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium grill seasoning
1 teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon salt
black pepper, to taste
5 ultra thin cheddar cheese slices, cut in half
10 whole wheat slider buns
*Optional ingredients not included in nutrition calculations.
Preheat outdoor grill or indoor grill pan to medium-high heat.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the turkey, relish, steak sauce, and seasonings and mix them together with clean hands.
Divide the meat in half, then divide each half into 5 equal sized sliders. Press them out thin, and make a thumb indention in the center of each slider to keep the meat flat while cooking.
Grill for 5-7 minutes, then flip and cook an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the burgers are cooked through.
In the last 1-2 minutes of grilling, top each mini burger with half a slice of cheese and serve with optional toppings on a wheat slider bun.
