Adobo Feta Turkey BLT Sliders

I really love making burgers of all kinds, especially in the summer months. There are so many ways to make a great burger, but I must say this combination I developed knocked our socks off.

Take a peek and enjoy friends! xoxo


Here’s your line up of ingredients. You can find the adobo sauce in a can of chipotle peppers. Adds perfect smoky flavor.

Let’s make the turkey sliders shall we? Add a little garlic salt to start.

A little salt and pepper please.

Some Feta Cheese. Don’t skip this, it’s heavenly throughout the slider.

One egg.


Here’s that Adobo Sauce. 3 tablespoons is perfect. Add more for more spice.

Mix it all up until just combined.

Form into little patties. About 1/4 cup each.

Time for the grill!

About 3-4 minutes each side.

Ahhh, little grill marks ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheese please!

Mmmm, melty.

Ok, time to layer all of this goodness on the rolls.

    Love this recipe and can’t wait to try it. I’m just a little confused on the chipotle sauce. You call it Ancho in your recipe, but Adobo in your heading. Just checking to see if it’s really Ancho sauce.

    Made these tonight but did burgers instead of sliders… Fabulous! We used Hawaiian bread hamburger buns – the sweet bread cut the heat nicely!

    Where did you get that fabulous grill pan?

    […] For a main course, you probably want something that’s easy to eat with one hand while holding a paper plate. For most people that means burgers, but if you want to try something just a little different, these turkey BLT sliders should do the trick. There’s crumbled Feta cheese mixed in with the ground turkey, plus a little of the sauce that you find in a can of chili peppers. Top it all off with Swiss cheese, bacon and tomato, and you’ve packed some big flavor on a small bun. (Picky Palate) […]

    There is certainly a lot to learn about this
    subject. I really like all the points you’ve made.
