Cajun Sliders

1/2 Lb. lean ground beef

1/2 Lb. lean ground turkey

1 Tbl. ketchup

1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

1/2 tsp. Cajun seasoning, plus more for veggies

1/4 tsp. hot sauce

1/2 tsp. white wine vinegar, opt.

1 clove garlic, grated

black pepper

1 red bell pepper, cut lengthwise into strips

5-6 round onion slices

Monterey cheese, sliced

5-6 hamburger/slider buns

For serving: Light Miracle Whip, mustard, pickles, lettuce


Add ground beef and turkey to a bowl.  In a separate bowl, combine the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning, hot sauce, white wine vinegar, grated garlic and black pepper; add to the ground meat and mix together until combined.  


Form into patties, slightly larger than your buns, because they shrink a little when cooked.  Cook hamburgers however desired.  I cooked mine on the George Foreman, but you could cook in a skillet if that is all you have.  Top each burger with a slice of cheese.  


Meanwhile, place the sliced red bell peppers and round onion slices on a baking sheet.  Spray lightly with cooking spray and sprinkle with a little Cajun seasoning.  Place under the broiler and heat until browned, tossing once.


Jenn's Notes: The number of sliders you will get obviously depends on the size of your buns.  I was able to get five sliders in the size that I needed. I typed the recipe above exactly as I made it and I thought these tasted amazing.
