memorial day recipes! ♥

here are some healthy cute recipes for your memorial day!  memorial day weekend is this weekend, get ready for some cute fun sun and great recipes...but most of all remember the true meaning of memorial day and all who served for our country! ♥

mini turkey burgers! ♥

supercute healthy version of your typical fatty burger!

These burgers are super cute. Sliders are mini burgers about 2-3 inches in diameter, served with all the fixins and sides of your choice. So use any ingredient for the patty--chicken, lamb, turkey and roll out a small sized burger patty. the only problem could be finding small sized burger buns. Almost all supermarkets carry sliders in both regular and whole wheat varieties.

Ingredients: (makes about 14)

1 lb minced chicken

1 egg

3-4 cloves garlic grated

1/2 red onion chopped fine

Handful fresh corriander chopped

Handful fresh dill chopped

salt to taste

3 tsp dry bread crumbs

1tsp hot chili sauce

  • Place the minced chicken in a mixing bowl and add all other ingredients to it.
  • Work them into the chicken well with your hand.
  • Shape into 2-3 inch diameter patty depending on the size of your bun. Place them on a wax paper
  • At this point you have an option to freeze any extra burger patties. Freeze them in an airtight container with wax papers in between to prevent sticking.
  • Stick the rest of them in the fridge for 15 minutes before cooking.
  • Grill them on medium high for 7 minutes per side till fully cooked.
  • Serve hot inside the buns.
    Place the chicken patty on the bun and top it with some or all of the following.
    Mayonnaise, mustard sauce, hot chilli sauce, red onion rings, tomato slices, lettuce or baby spinach, relish, dill pickles. enjoy!
