Toddler Cheeseburgers, AKA Sliders

Sliders and Bacon Spinach Salad.

Things have been busy at the office for the girl's daddy and I. I have to admit we have had a few take out meals recently. In the past take out meals were reserved for play dates at the golden arches. Those meals always meant a nugget dipped in ketchup because mamma doesn't eat beef. One take-out meal recently was purchased by daddy and consisted of cheeseburgers. Daddy thought he was being smart on the meal selection but the girls turned their noses up.

I thought it might be nice to have the girls help make mini cheeseburgers so they could get used to what a cheeseburger tastes like. It apparently only took one time for the girls to learn to appreciate a good burger.

Turkey Sliders

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp barbecue sauce
  • 1 tbsp Heinz 57 sauce
  • 1 tbsp ketchup 
  • seasoning to taste
Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix until combined. Roll into small hamburger patties about the size of a young child's fist. We had a variety of sized to accommodate adult and child eaters. Grill or pan fry according to your liking. I have to admit I am not that great in this area. The sliders came out tasting fabulous though!

We loved these so much they made it instantly to the regular dinner menu. Audrey climbed up to watch while I uploaded pictures and begged to have these for dinner again tonight. Daddy is out of town so we do have leftovers....

Furiously mixing.

Patty cake, patty cake.

Admiring her work.

Someone has to direct mom in proper cooking procedures.
