I knew apples and turkey went well together, but I never considered combining them to make a slider that's both healthy and delicious.
Whenever I visit my family, I always get a few delicious homecooked meals and inevitably head home with a couple of new recipes under my belt that I can't wait to reproduce. This visit was no different. My mother made some spectacular brownies and a wonderful pasta salad, but she also made these amazing little turkey sliders. They were salty and sweet, and I couldn't get enough. I must have eaten six or seven of them in a matter of minutes -- but I wasn't the only one. All the kids gobbled them up, too. Since they were such a huge hit with my husband and the kiddies as well, I asked for the recipe and how complicated they were to recreate. She told me they were a piece of cake and she fully intends to make them again... and again. So, here they are -- the perfect burger whether you're doing dinner for four or 40.
