Feta Sun-Dried Tomato Turkey Burger Sliders

Good Thursday to you! The week is flying isn’t it? I didn’t plan on sharing this recipe, and certainly didn’t plan on photographing it, but after having these babies for lunch with my hubby, I knew I had to snap some pictures and share it with you!

A few years ago when I was enjoying cooking competitions, I competed in the Build A Better Burger Competition. Ever since that event, I have been in love with making fun burgers of all kinds. The burger I competed with in 2004 actually had feta and sun dried tomatoes in it, which is one of my favorite combinations now!

This turkey burger has minimal ingredients with massive flavor. My husband was all compliments while inhaling his sliders, and he has no problem telling me his honest opinion! I found these adorable mini hamburger buns at Trader Joes and seriously love them! I mean, they really are cute and are the exact shape of regular hamburger buns. Of course you can always use dinner rolls if you can’t seem to find this product 🙂

Hope you all enjoy my little sliders.

Here they are, mini hamburger buns. Maybe I’ve missed them in the past, but I don’t remember seeing these at Trader Joe’s before. Glad they have them.

I cooked these burgers right on the stove top in a large skillet. Was just too lazy to fire up the grill. By all means, grill them if you’d rather.

If you are a feta fan, beware…you could quite possibly eat many of these 🙂

Feta Sun-Dried Tomato Turkey Burger Sliders

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 lb ground turkey

1/2 Cup crumbled feta cheese

1/4 Cup sun-dried tomatoes, jarred in olive oil

1/2 Cup fresh baby spinach leaves, chopped

Pinch of Kosher salt, fresh cracked pepper and Lawry’s Garlic Salt with Parsley

Sun-Dried Tomato Mayonnaise

1 Cup mayonnaise

2 Tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes, packed in olive oil, drained

Baby hamburger buns or dinner rolls, split and warmed

2 Cups fresh baby spinach leaves

1. Heat oil into a large skillet over medium heat. Place turkey, feta, sun dried tomato, spinach and seasonings into a mixing bowl. Mix until just combined. Form 1/4 Cup little patty’s and place onto a cookie sheet. Once all are formed, place batches in hot skillet. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown and cooked through.

2. Place mayonnaise and tomatoes into a bowl; mix to combine. Spread over insides of warm rolls. Layer bottom roll with spinach and the burger. Close with top roll and eat 🙂

Makes about 12 little sliders


Have a great weekend!! See you all soon 🙂

  1. Nice blog here! Also your web site loads up fast! What host are you using?
    Can I get your affiliate link to your host? I wish my website loaded up as quickly as
    yours lol

  2. Its like you read my thoughts! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something. I feel that you just can do with a few p.c. to drive the message home a little bit, however instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.

  3. You really make it appear so easy together with your presentation but I in finding this matter to be actually one thing which I think I would by no means understand. It seems too complicated and very large for me. I’m having a look forward to your subsequent publish, I will try to get the hold of it!

    Loved this recipe, thank you! I adapted it a bit – I added basil, about equal to the spinach- and added a basil leaf to the buns, too. My husband and three boys (7, 10 & 13,) gobbled them down! Thanks again!

  5. carrie

    I wonder how these would turn out as regular sized burgers. We have about a lb of ground turkey ready to use…and this sounds AWESOME, I think I am going to try this!

    (my friend linked me to your oreo-stuffed chocolate cookie recipe and now I can’t stop bookmarking your other recipes. It all sounds so good!!)

    I have made them twice now and they are DELICIOUS!!!! To cut a little calories I used reduced fat feta and made sure I had ground turkey breast and they were very moist and wonderful morsels of goodness!! The nearest Trader Joe’s is an hour and a half away, so I used whole wheat dinner rolls once and Hawaiian bread dinner rolls…yummy! Thank you for this tasty recipe!

    Hmmmm, could turkey mince be subsituted with chicken mince or beef mince. It’s difficult to get turkey mince in Australia. Thanks!

  8. These were SO good. I made them earlier this week and they were scrumptious! I plan to feature them on my blog and link to you if that’s alright. I also made my own version that night, cheese stuffed, turkey burger sliders with bacon and avocado dressing/spread. Posted that this morning on the blog, so I plan to do yours on another day so it gets equal “face time”!

    Delicious. Thanks for the recipe and the inspiration!

  9. Made these last night and OMG they were soooo delicious! I made these and my own creation…Cheese Stuffed Bacon Turkey Burger Sliders…Posting them tomorrow on my blog! Served Baked Sweet Potato Fries with garlic, fresh rosemary, salt, olive oil and so on with them. (also posted on my blog) SO GOOD!!!! Thank you for the recipe and the inspiration!

  10. Belinda

    Delicious! Just made them and instead of garlic salt used minced garlic and they are lip-smacking great!

  11. These look and sound amazing! I followed this recipe over from PW and cannot wait to try them. I’m a fairly new blogger and I loooove cooking and well anything food related so I am so very inspired by people like you, RecipeGirl and PW….

  12. I saw your little sliders on PW and wanted to tell you your photography is stunning, absolutely drop dead gorgeous. I’ve never seen the little slider rolls. I will definitely keep my eye out for them.

  13. So glad I found you – I made these sliders tonight and they were just awesome!! I am following you on Twitter and have bookmark this blog!!


  14. I made these the other night and they were fantastic. I chopped up the spinach until it was pretty small .. and it added incredible moisture to the turkey (ground turkey can be dry). My kids ate two sliders each (love those slider rolls)!

    I loved these burgers. I used my grill pan to cook them to save on the fat, and also put the spinach, feta and tomatoes through my mini chopper before adding them to the turkey. I also added some spinach to the mayo mixture. Great recipe, glad you decided to post it

  16. Thank you for sharing your delicious recipes! I made these sliders and they were a hit! I think I’ll try them on Hawaiian mini buns next time! 🙂

  17. Camee Faulk

    I made these burgers a few nights ago and they were DELICIOUS! The only bummer was that I couldn’t find mini hamburger buns anywhere! I am going to make them for my friend’s bridal shower in a few weeks because they were SO delicious and cute! THANKS!

  18. Lexi

    I don’t even like hamburgers or turkey… but these look so yummy, I want to eat them all! I’m making these as one of my mini apps for my dinner party this week!

  19. nicole

    I made these tonight and they were just as delicious at they look! Thanks for posting the recipe. My family and I can’t wait to eat them again next week.

    PS- my TJ’s had these buns, but I bought the last two packages. I think they sell quickly!

  20. I’ve never seen these little buns either but I’ll be looking. I’ve never had feta on a burger and now I feel like Ii’ve been missing out. I’ll have to try these little sliders!

  21. Kimm Geria

    These look delish. Will have to try. Trader Joes also has the premade sliders made up in their fresh meat area. We did these for one of our functions for the kids. Can’t wait to try this I love feta.

  22. First, I love that Build a Better Burger contest. I always watch it on tv when I run across it. These sliders are too cute. I’m actually making sloppy joe sliders tonight. We have similar buns at my store but it’s the first time trying them. I am definitely going to make these burgers. The sun-dried tomato and feta combo are great.

  23. First off, those look wicked good. I love turkey burgers. But I haven’t seen those mini buns at TJs either, I’ll be keeping my eyes out for them though.

    1. Seriously, this was one of the most difficult photo shoots yet! Those babies did not want to stay put!! AT least I got a few good shots 🙂

  24. Wow, these look so delicious! Turkey burgers are my favorite and I love those little buns you’ve found! Definitely need to look for them at TJs. Sun-dried tomatos and feta are such a great combination.
