More About This Recipe
My husband has a reputation.
It’s not what you think – in our neighborhood, he’s known as the guy that loves to host slider parties. As is often the case, Jeff started out small, with offerings like Bacon double cheeseburger sliders. But that wasn’t enough to quench his or our guests insatiable slider yearnings. He moved on to Bison BBQ Bleus (bison, barbeque sauce and blue cheese) and Thai Chicken sliders (peanut sauce, pepperjack cheese and spicy slaw) that were outstanding.
This year’s landslide favorite is Turkey Taco Sliders. Everything you love about a taco, in a delicious tiny burger! So easy, just mix a pound of ground turkey, an egg, and an envelope of Old El Paso Taco Seasoning, and form into 12 small patties. (Ground beef will work also, however, the taco flavor is more apparent with the turkey.)
A person can buy fancy slider racks and tools for forming the patties. These are nice to have, and the racks in particular render the small patties easier to handle on the grill, but not necessary. (I did use our patty makers so the pictures would look pretty. The resulting slider patty, patty maker or no, looks about the same!)
Definitely grill these on the top rack to keep them moist. Time on the grill will vary based on your grill, the rack height and the temperature. Make sure they are cooked through, due to the poultry.
Then, dress up the burgers with your favorite taco fixings and serve to your delighted guests!
