I cannot even believe that June is almost over…

I thought I wasn’t ready, but these little sliders would actually be completely perfect for the occasion! They’re adorable, easy, and so delicious! Plus, I feel like all Fourth of July parties should serve food that’s been grilled. Just seems fitting, ya know?

The base recipe comes from Martha Stewart, and she is an utter genius. The gruyere, dijon, and green onion are ridiculously good inside these patties. I make mine a little bit different as I like more cheese, more garlic, and in miniature size! It’s cuter that way, and better for a party! As for the bread crumbs, I like to just grind up stale baguettes super finely in my food processor.

Mixing the cheese and mustard into the patties themselves keeps these babies extra moist. No joke, these are the moistest and most delicious turkey burgers you will ever try—promise!

I love tomatoes in the summertime <3

I like to top my little sliders with all the fixin’s of a BLT sandwich. The crisp bacon, juicy tomato, and cool, crisp lettuce are fantastic textural contrasts.

Also guys, not about these burgers, but yesterday my baby brother turned 18. EIGHTEEN! He’s a legal adult, and I just. can’t. even. He’s going off to college in the Fall, and I’m beyond proud of him. Just had to get that off my chest 😀

BLT Turkey Burger Sliders

Yield: 10 sliders

Ingredients:

for the patties:

  • 1 and 1/2 lbs ground turkey
  • 3/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
  • 1/4 cup dried breadcrumbs (I came my own by grinding up stale baguettes)
  • 3-4 green onions, sliced
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • salt and pepper

for the sliders:

  • 10 mini brioche buns, toasted
  • 10 slices bacon, crisped
  • plum tomatoes, sliced
  • butter lettuce
  • mayo

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, use your hands to gently mix together all of the patty ingredients. Carefuly form into 10 slider patties, about an inch thick. (At this point, you can place all of the patties on a baking sheet, cover with foil, a refrigerate until ready to cook.)
  2. Heat your grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Lightly oil the grill or grill pan with olive oil. Cook the patties for 2 minutes per side. Then, wither transfer to a cooler part of the grill, or a 250 degree oven for about 10 minutes, until cooked through.
  3. To assemble, spread a little mayo on each side of your toasted buns. Top with lettuce, the patty, the tomato slices, and some bacon. Enjoy!

    Holy moly these look incredible! I want like half a dozen of them to myself, haha. I’m drooling, just thinking about how flavorful the dijon, Gruyere, and green onions must be all together…
