Mini Turkey Sliders with Sweet Potato Bun


Making dinner every night can be kinda boring, so I like easy, gluten free yummy recipes like this one!

This recipe is a spin off of another recipe that I love- Easy Beef Burgers; however, here I used turkey meat instead, and used roasted sweet potato rounds as the buns!

These cute little sliders are always a big hit at parties and gatherings. Add any of your favorite veggies and toppings and make these your own. Serve with a veggie or a salad and you’re good to go.

Enjoy these tasty, gluten-free, paleo, and whole30 friendly sliders!

Enjoy!

Mini Turkey Sliders with Sweet Potato Bun

Prep time: 10 minutes

Total time: 40 minutes

Makes: 8 sliders

Ingredients:

For the buns:

  • 2 medium sized sweet potatoes, sliced to 1/4 inch thick (or so)
  • 1 sheet parchment paper

For the burgers:

  • 1 shallot, sliced
  • 1 Tbsp tsp avocado oil- 1 tsp for the shallot, 2 for the burgers
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp ketchup
  • 1 lb ground turkey meat
  • 2 tsp herbs de provence
  • Dash salt and pepper

For the toppings:

  • 1 avocado, mashed
  • Your favorite condiments (I used Sir Kensington’s Chipotle Vegan Mayo, Ketchup, Mustard, Spinach)

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Wash and prepare the sweet potato then lay the slices out on the parchment lined baking sheet.
  3. Place the tray in the oven and allow to cook for about 15 minutes per side (flip)- total about 30 minutes- don’t add oil otherwise they’ll get soggy!
  4. While the sweet potatoes are cooking, heat a small frying pan over medium heat and add the oil.
  5. Sautee the shallot in the small pan, until golden brown- remove from heat (about 2-3 minutes).
  6. In a medium mixing bowl combine the shallot with the rest of the burger ingredients and mix together with hands- then form about 8 patties (they’ll be small!).
  7. Heat a medium (or two) pans over medium heat, and add the remaining oil.
  8. Add the burgers to the pans and cook for about 12 minutes- flip half way through- and because this is poultry the burgers should be cooked through.
  9. Remove the cooked sweet potato slices from the oven and allow to cool for 1-2 minutes; mash the avocado and prepare the other toppings for the burgers.
  10. Remove the cooked burgers from the oven and set up the mini sliders each with 2 sweet potato slices, mashed avocado and your favorite toppings.
  11. Serve them and enjoy!! They’re so tasty!
