Mediterranean Turkey Sliders

Mediterranean Turkey Sliders

Miniature turkey patties are flavored with ATHENOS Feta Cheese and sun-dried tomatoes, then topped with spinach, roasted red peppers and a flavorful tzatziki sauce. Serve these as part of a meal or as a party appetizer.

Notes

Cooking Ground Meat:
Ground beef, veal, lamb and pork should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F, while ground chicken and turkey should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees. For accurate results, use a digital instant-read food thermometer, inserting tip 1/2 inch into center of meat. If the meat piece is too thin to check from the top, insert thermometer sideways into the piece of meat.

Substitute:
Substitute your favorite salad greens for the spinach.

Note:
If this recipe makes more than what you need, you can freeze part of the turkey mixture for up to 1 month. Thaw in refrigerator before using as directed. You can then shape the turkey mixture into patties as directed, or instead shape it into meatballs or a meatloaf and bake at 350ºF until done.
