Healthy Stuffed Turkey Sliders

 

My hubby has been seeing many recipes and pictures of burgers/ sliders lately and begging me to make some. Knowing I still wanted them healthy, I chose to use my ground turkey recipe for Turkey Meatloaf Muffins and then stuffed them with cheese! It was a winning solution all around. The family liked them and I was happy they weren’t going to break my calorie/point budget for the day!

Healthy Stuffed Turkey Sliders

Ingredients

  • 2.5 lb. ground turkey, 93% lean
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 c. 1 % milk
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2  tsp. pepper
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp. garlic, minced
  • 1/2 c. whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1/2 c. Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 c. mozzarella, shredded

Directions

  1.  Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and combine well.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  3. Using your hands form a ball somewhat smaller than the size of a tennis ball. Make 14-16 depending on size.
  4. Indent each ball with your thumb and place about 1-2 teaspoons of shredded cheese in each.
  5. Fold over the edges to cover the cheese so it won’t leak out.
  6. Flatten and lay the sliders on a wire  rack over a baking pan.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in center reads 160 degrees Fahrenheit.
  8.  Enjoy on a whole grain bun or top with my Cucumber Feta Relish!

Comments

  1. I love this idea! I have never thought to cook burgers like this in the oven with the fat dripping down and I love the cheese in the middle! I can eat it without the bun for low carb and use whole-wheat buns for my kids – I’ll be making this very soon! Thanks!

  2. These look wonderful! What a fun idea. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Stopping by from Melt In Your Mouth Monday!

  3. I make this as meatballs (I don’t squish them down at all). My entire family loves these, even my 3 picky boys. Thanks for another great recipe.
