Ingredients

For the burgers:

  • 1 Pound ground turkey breast
  • 1/2 Cup diced onion
  • 1 large clove garlic, grated
  • 1 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 Cup of your dad's favorite Buffalo sauce (save some for garnish as well)
  • 1 green onion, sliced and divided
  • 6 whole wheat buns

For the slaw:

  • 1 green onion, sliced and divided
  • 2 Tablespoons low-fat mayo or Greek yogurt
  • 5 Tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 2 Tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
  • 3/4 Cups shredded carrot
  • 3/4 Cups shredded red cabbage
  • 1/4 Teaspoon black pepper

Directions

For the burgers:

Combine the turkey breast, onion, garlic, salt, Buffalo sauce, and green onion in a medium bowl. Form into six patties.

Heat a grill pan or nonstick skillet to medium-high heat. Add the sliders and cook until they're golden brown on both sides and cooked through, about 2-3 minutes per side.

While the patties are cooking, make the slaw.

When the patties are finished cooking, brush with a little bit more hot sauce. Place the patties on slider buns, top with slaw, and serve.

For the slaw:

Whisk mayo or Greek yogurt, buttermilk, salt, and crumbled blue cheese together in a small bowl.

Add green onion, shredded carrot, and red cabbage. Toss in the whisked dressing and season with salt and pepper.
