|Teriyaki Turkey Sliders|
Raise your hand if you are looking for a quick dinner idea. I see all you hands raised and Teriyaki Turkey Sliders is just the recipe for you. Ground turkey is seasoned with hoisin and soy sauces and add an Asian twist to a typical burger. With a few minutes on the grill, dinner comes together quickly.
I enlisted the use of my grill pan because I still cannot quite get to the Weber grill on our snowy deck. Soon though. I think I will venture out there very soon. With our snowier than average winter, I have used my grill pan more and more and have found it to be a suitable stand in for the grill.
As an added bonus, I tacked on my recipe for Soy Slaw to complete the meal.
10 minutes of prep time and 6 - 8 minutes of grilling = dinner on the table. :)
Teriyaki Turkey Sliders
1 pound ground turkey
3 scallions, sliced thinly
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce, plus extra for brushing on the sliders while grilling
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup panko
8 slider buns such as Martin's Dinner Rolls
In a large bowl, gently combine the ground turkey, scallions, 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce, soy sauce, garlic powder, and panko. Form patties using approximately 1/4 cup of the turkey mixture.
Heat grill or grill pan to medium high heat and brush with a little olive oil. Add the sliders and grill for about 3 - 4 minutes. Flip and brush the sliders with the extra hoisin sauce. Grill for another 3 - 4 minutes. Remove from grill and serve on rolls.

Whisk together the peanut oil, soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar, mirin, and rice wine vinegar. Set aside.
