Ingredients
  • For the turkey:
  • 1 pound 94% lean ground turkey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup white onion, finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons Blue Moose Basil Pesto
  • For the sweet potato buns:
  • 2-3 medium sweet potatoes, sliced into ⅛ inch rounds (you’ll want about 28 round total)
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • For the avocado pesto sauce:
  • ½ avocado
  • 1 tablespoon Blue Moose Basil Pesto
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • For the toppings:
  • 2 roma tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 cup arugula
  • For the hummus dip:
  • ½ cup Blue Moose Original Hummus
  • 2 tablespoons Blue Moose Pesto
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Instructions
  1. Preheat grill to medium high heat.
  2. In a large bowl add lean ground turkey meat, garlic, onion, pesto and salt and pepper and mix with clean hands until just combined.
  3. With turkey mixture form 2 inch round slider patties, you should get about 14. Set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, combine sweet potato rounds with olive oil and salt.
  5. Place sliders on grill for about 4-5 minutes each side or until fully cooked. If you have room, you can also cook the sweet potato rounds at the same time; they should take about 3-4 minutes per side; just watch carefully so they do not burn.
  6. Next make the pesto guacamole by mixing together the avocado and Blue Mouse Pesto. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Assemble the sliders by placing the cooked turkey slider on the grilled sweet potato rounds, then top with a teaspoon of pesto guacamole, 1 slice of tomato and arugula. Makes about 14 sliders.
  8. Enjoy with the hummus dip if you’d like.
