These sweet and spicy turkey sliders are perfect when you aren’t in the mood for a full sized burger.  The sweet mixed with the spicy is a perfect compliment.  These were adapted from my mini meatloaf recipe.

Sweet and Spicy Turkey Sliders

My husband is obsessed with burgers.  It’s actually one of his favorite food groups – he will eat anything and isn’t very picky, but if he had to choose, he would choose a burger any day.  

When I made the mini meatloaves for the first time, I thought about how to make these into something better.  And boom – these sweet and spicy turkey sliders were born.

The recipe might be similar to the mini meatloaves, but I love that they are sliders instead of meatloaves.

If you are interested in more turkey recipes, try the baked Parmesan turkey meatballs or the sun-dried tomato turkey burgers.
