Thai Turkey Sliders

Summer & burgers go together like, well, summer & burgers, so venture a little on the wild side and make Thai Turkey Sliders.

These mini burgers are healthy-ish, filling and lightly spicy, thanks to the addition of Sriracha sauce.  They also only take 25 minutes to make!!

I love to serve these as a starter for any summer gathering and are also perfect for a late-night craving!

The burgers are made from lean ground turkey (there’s the healthy part) and shredded carrots, green onion, ginger, Sriracha and peanut butter.  Form them into small patties, cook them in a hot skillet and get ready to top them.

The peanut sauce is a delicious combination of peanut butter, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, rice vinegar, lime juice, honey, Sriracha, sesame oil and ginger.  What could be bad about that?

And, the slaw is a blend of cabbage, carrots, parsley and a healthy dose of the peanut sauce.

These delicious sliders get schmeared with peanut sauce and topped with the slaw.  They are enveloped in a brioche slider bun, or whatever slider bun you prefer.

Then you get to squeeze it all together for that delicious bite!  Enjoy!
