Mozzarella Stuffed Tomato Basil Turkey Burger Sliders



Happy Monday! This beautiful weather has been doing wonderful things for my little basil plant! It has been growing like crazy. So that means it's time to start cooking! I don't want any of those tasty leaves to go to waste.
One of my favorite combos is basil, tomato, and mozzarella. So, when I looked in my freezer and saw the turkey burger, inspiration struck me. Why not make mozzarella stuffed turkey burgers and top them off with fresh basil and vine ripened tomatoes? So fresh and easy! They turned out delicious! I used mozzarella cheese balls that I got at Whole Foods but I bet the same great flavor could be achieved using shredded mozzarella. The combination of flavors in these little burgers perfectly typifies summer and it is an easy healthy meal to throw together when you don't feel like slaving over a hot stove. I served mine up with some garlic fries but they would also go great with a salad or grilled veggies (for less carbs). Hope you have a wonderful day and enjoy these little sliders!

Mozzarella Stuffed Tomato Basil Sliders

Ingredients

1 lb Ground Turkey
1 package mozzarella cheese balls or 1 package shredded mozzarella cheese
Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
1 cup bread crumbs
8 small hamburger buns
16 small basil leaves
8 slices fresh tomato

Divide turkey into 8 pieces. Mix each piece with 1 to 2 tblsp breadcrumbs, season with salt and pepper and divide each piece into two equally sized patties (you should now have 16 small patties).

Put 8 of the patties onto a foil lined baking sheet, top each with mozzarella cheese.

Top with other patty, pressing gently around the edges to seal the cheese in. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Place tray in oven about 6 inches from the broiler. Broil for about 7 minutes or until cooked through. When cooked, remove patties from oven, place on bun, top with 2 small basil leaves and a slice of tomato and serve!

  4. I am your newest follower! These look delicious. I posted Southwest Sliders last week, but this looks so good with the mozzarella balls tucked inside. How easy is that? My family loves sliders, even if they are just baby hamburgers. We will be trying these out this week! Thanks for the yummy idea.

  7. Yay! I'm so glad you liked them! And you can eat more than one and not feel bad cause they are mini! Anything that small can't have calories right? That's what I always figure anyways...
