Are you ready for a brilliant dinner idea?
|Pesto and feta-cheese turkey sliders!|
These are so scrumptious, I can't even describe it. Not to mention they are really little and CUTE which makes them even more addicting. They are little tiny turkey-pesto-feta cheese burgers!
First, I made Honey Wheat Sandwich Buns from Annie's Eats, except I made them smaller. Other than that, I made no changes.

You can definitely use store-bought sandwich rolls, but making these sliders with homemade buns made them exponentially delicious.
Next I followed this recipe from AllRecipes.com to make pesto turkey burgers, except I made the burgers tiny.
It's really easy:
1 1/4 pounds ground turkey
2 tablespoons pesto
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup bread crumbs
Just mix all that up and form into small patties. Cook on the grill about 5 minutes each side.
Split the honey-wheat-sandwich-buns in half and place each half face-down on the grill for a few moments, and then fill each one with a pesto-turkey-burger.
These were so tasty that we didn't even need ketchup! Of course, you can add toppings like onions, lettuce, or tomatoes... but I think they are perfect without anything added. I have had turkey burgers before and I wasn't impressed, but adding the pesto and the feta cheese (and making them small and cute, of course) is what makes these phenomenal.
