Turkey Meatball Sliders

Turkey Meatball Sliders
Love these sliders! Super tasty and perfectly sized for little kid hands. Aa an added benefit… I found that these mini sandwiches also help adults with portion control. Score!

Cooking Step 1
Thanks to Pioneer Woman for this great idea, I did change up the recipe to use ground turkey and it was excellent.

I also suggest slightly flattening the meatballs so they are easy to flip during cooking, easier to bun, and give the kids a fighting chance to take a full bite. Heaven forbid we lose yet another meatball to the dog!


Cooking Step 2

I have to ask though, at what point does a meatball become a burger? Size, seasoning, shape. These seem to have properties of both. Maybe we can just call them a hybrid? I don’t think it matters, they taste fantastic and make a fun meal.
