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 🙂

    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!

  3. 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!

  4. Liz - Meal Makeover Mom

    Those sliders look awesome. I love feta cheese and sundried tomatoes. Yum. I have not seen those mini hamburger buns at my local TJs. I wonder if they’re only available in CA. Humph!!

  5. Cristina @ TeenieCakes

    These sliders look both delicious and cute! I’ve never seen ham buns that size – I’ll have to look for them at TJ. Love all the ingredients (had me at feta!).

  6. 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!

  7. KatieJ-WannabeCrafter

    Oh yum- these are calling my name. Are they good without the buns and mayo too by chance? I don’t know if I can skip that though, sounds delish! Thanks for sharing your great recipes!

  8. The Wife @ One Couples Kitchen

    Oh goodness, everything about these looks delicious! I don’t remember ever seeing these little buns at TJ’s either, but I definitely will look when I go back.

    These sound absolutely delicious! I love the combo of flavors. Great pics with your new camera by the way!

    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!

  11. 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.

  12. Crystal's Cozy Kitchen

    Those look so delicious, I am totally going to have to make these… when Hubby is in the mood for something new.

  13. Jamie

    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.

      Hi Barbie,
      I buy the big jar of oil packed Sun-Dried Tomatoes at Costco. I’m sure Trader Joe’s sells them too.

  14. Kerstin

    These look so cute and tasty! Have you stopped entering contests? I hope not because your recipes are always so inspiring!

  15. Bob

    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.

  16. Christa Kelso

    Hey!! Not Fair! My trader joes doesn’t have those mini buns! Nonetheless, they look DELISH! Feta & I are best of friends ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Michele

    Mmm, I have feta and ground turkey in my freezer I need to use up. This will be great. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Jenny

      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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Meghan

    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.

    YUM! Those burgers sound amazing, the feta and sun-dried tomatoes sounds like a great combination!
