tried and true: thai turkey burger sliders
*these are recipes that have become staples in our household and make it into the rotation frequently
Here’s a wonderfully easy recipe to make at home on any weeknight of your choosing! If you’re like me, you truly value the ability to “measure and dump” after a long Tuesday and still end up with something homemade and yummy. Moms will like it for the fast prep and quick cooking, so you might just be able to gobble down dinner before munchkins head to bed!
When I stumbled upon this recipe two years ago, it was just to make normal regular sized burgers. But sometimes you want something easy and fun to eat… so I decided to transform them into little sliders so that I could use my favorite buns (King’s Hawaiian sweet rolls) in place of regular ‘ol hamburger buns. This way, you can dress your sliders as you want and add a little bit of variety to the mix if you so choose!
Thai Turkey Burger Sliders (makes 8 sliders)
1 package of lean ground turkey (~ 1 lb)
1 carrot, shredded
3-4 green onions, minced
1/2 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp chili garlic sauce
2 tbsp natural peanut butter
freshly ground salt & pepper
1/2 tsp ground ginger
King’s Hawaiian Sweet rolls (or your choice of bun)
Toppings of your choice (chili/cilantro mayo, mixed greens, Sriracha, etc.)
Step 1: round up all of your ingredients!
Step 2: Dump them all in a mixing bowl. Smoosh together with a fork, spoon or your hands.
Step 3: Form small patties from your turkey mixture. Cook on a medium-high grill for about 3 minutes per side (making sure it’s cooked through!).
Step 4: Slide them into their buns and “dress” them up with your favorite toppings! Maybe some cilantro-chili mayo (chop up fresh cilantro, and mix it up with some mayo and chili-garlic sauce), Sriracha, mixed salad greens? Or, you can be a plain ‘ol girl like me!

Sounds delicious! The Hubs and I have turkey burgers all the time, so this will be a nice spin on a staple meal in our house!
Oooo, this is definitely going onto next week’s menu to try.
I’m a turkey burger fanatic, so I’m definitely going to try these!
Yum yum I LOVE turkey burgers!
Yum! I’m going to try these. I’ve been making turkey meatballs over and over again and could use a change!
Pinning this! Is that okay? Let me know. It’s where I keep all of my recipes now, to keep my bookmarks neat.
It wouldn’t let me pin! Okay, bookmarking instead. :)
what?!? crazy talk! I saw a few people pin it yesterday… so maybe pinterest is just having an off day? :( It does that way too often for my liking
Thanks Kim! Looks yummy…we’ll have to try it.
These look delicious and have been added to my growing list of recipes to try. ha ha.
Question for you, how did you make your little nutrition label? I’ve been trying to find somewhere I can input recipes and have it spit out a nutrition label but I haven’t had much luck…
Just wanted to tell you that we tried them and loved them! Our grill was a little tough on the wee burgers, so a fancy flip basket may be in order. Anyway, thanks for the recipes. Delish!
