These are really good and diet friendly. This recipe does not have a good binder so we do struggle with the patties holding together, but we don't let that get in our way :)
Yield: 4- 2 slider servings
Source: Weight Watchers
- 1 red pepper, finely chopped
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 Tbsp water
- 1 lb ground turkey or chicken
- 2 Tbsp buffalo wing sauce
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 8 slider buns
- 2 Tbsp blue cheese
- 8 lettuce leaves
- 8 tomato slices
- Spray large non-stick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add onion, red pepper, and water and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until liquid is evaporated and vegetables are very tender, about 8 minutes.
- Let cool for 10 minutes. Combine with meat, buffalo wing sauce, and salt and form into 8 (1/2 inch thick) patties. Cover with plastic wrap and chill until firm - approximately 1 hour to overnight.
- Spray skillet with non-stick spray and set over medium-low heat. Cook until patties reach 165 degrees F, about 4-5 minutes per side. We've found that the electric skillet works best for cooking the patties.
- Place patty on toasted slider bun and top with blue cheese crumbles, lettuce, and tomato. I like to add extra hot wing sauce and sliced red onion to mine.
These are great little sliders and the wasabi sauce adds a real kick. I love the idea of using wheat dinner rolls as buns.
Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 3 servings (2 sliders each)
- 1/4 cup low-fat cottage cheese
- 2 tsp milk
- 8 oz turkey breast
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- 2 tsp soy sauce
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 scallions, green and white parts, minced
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1 large egg
- 3 Tbsp sesame seeds, ground
- 6 whole wheat dinner rolls, sliced
- Wasabi Sauce
- 1 Tbsp mayonnaise (I prefer reduced fat olive oil mayonnaise)
- 2 tsp wasabi paste (or more to taste)
- Heat electric skillet or griddle to medium-high heat. An electric skillet works best. We've tried using a skillet on the stove but didn't have much success.
- Grind sesame seeds in a blender or food processor. Remove.
- Combine cottage cheese and milk in blender/food processor and blend until smooth, about one minute.
- In a large bowl, combine cottage cheese mixture with remaining ingredients. Mix well. Form into 6 patties.
- Grill burgers for 5-7 minutes on each side. Internal temperature should reach 165 degrees F. Place rolls on griddle to toast if desired.
- Mix mayonnaise and 1 tsp. wasabi paste. Adjust to taste. I tend to do almost 50/50 mayo and wasabi and then wonder why there's smoke coming out my nose - lol!
- Place grilled turkey burger on bottom half of the roll. Top with wasabi sauce as desired and the top half of the roll.
