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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

Makes about 12 little sliders


Have a great weekend!! See you all soon πŸ™‚

    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.

    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!

    juliann says:

    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

  38. 38

    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)!

    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!

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

    honeydew72 says:

    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!

    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!

    I was suggested this blog by way of my cousin. I am now not positive whether this put up is written by means of him as no one else recognise such unique about my trouble. You are amazing! Thank you!
