🏠 | Zucchini Turkey Sliders


These are seriously the cutest little healthy sliders that I have ever eaten. They’re fast to make and low in calories. They can work as appetizers or even main entrees, depending on how many you can resist. While I seasoned my ground turkey the way I like to eat it, you can play with the seasonings for the turkey (or even use ground beef) to cater towards your own taste preferences. The most time consuming part of this recipe is preparing the meat, but everything else was easy peasy. I’ll definitely be making these again – enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound ground turkey, chicken or beef
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tbsp diced onion
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • Dash of cayenne (optional)
  • 1 large zucchini
  • Olive oil
  • Any other seasonings (optional)

Instructions

  • Combine the ground meat, garlic, onion, salt, pepper, paprika, and optional cayenne
  • Slice the zucchini into quarter inch thick circles
  • Drizzle olive oil over the zucchini and place them on a grill to get some grill marks on them. A regular frying pan can work as well. In case you’re wondering what kind of pan I’m using to grill the zucchinis, check out this baby here (link)
  • Form patties the same diameter as the zucchini slices
  • Turn the frying pan to medium heat and fry the patties until cooked thoroughly
  • You can add additional toppings to your sliders, including tomatoes, avocado, mushrooms, onions, mustard, etc
