Ginger Teriyaki Sliders

As you may have noticed, I haven’t been posting much the last two weeks because my life is changing and I’ve got a lot of good things going on so I’m stretched a little thin. I intend to keep up with this blog as best as I can so THANK YOU for hanging in with me! Anyway…you guys. These Ginger Teriyaki Sliders. OMG. Please try them.

Ginger, scallions, and mushrooms are chopped in a food processor and added to ground turkey (the recipe uses pork so use whatever you like!). Teriyaki sauce and panko crumbs are added and then formed into little patties and broiled – who knew?! – until perfectly cooked (use a meat thermometer when it comes to turkey and pork to make sure they are fully cooked). A little mixture of mayonnaise, more teriyaki sauce and a pinch of sugar are smeared onto slider buns with sprinkles of scallions, all of which add yet even more flavor. Seriously, I’m embarrassed to tell you that I ate all of these sliders almost in one sitting. Luckily I had two friends over on Saturday and they each had a few but yes, the rest are in my tummy. Embarrassing. But these sliders are insanely ridiculously good.

Heat broiler. Line a baking pan with foil; coat foil with nonstick cooking spray. Wrap rolls in foil and place in lower part of oven to warm. In a mini chopper, combine mushrooms, 2 of the scallions and the ginger. Pulse until finely chopped.

Transfer to a medium-size bowl and add pork or turkey, 1/4 cup of the stir-fry sauce and the bread crumbs. Stir to blend. Shape mixture into 12 equal-size patties, a scant 1/4 cup for each. Place patties on prepared baking pan; broil 4 inches from heat for 6 minutes, turning once, until instant-read thermometer registers 160 degrees when inserted into center of burgers.

Meanwhile, stir together mayonnaise, remaining 1 teaspoon teriyaki stir-fry sauce and the sugar in a small bowl.
