Turkey Burger Sweet Potato Sliders

Rae, from "Rae Rae's Gourmet" (LOL) gave us the inspiration for this freaking. good. Thank you!!!!

2 large (round-ish) sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into 1/2 inch rounds.
1 lb ground turkey
1/4 cup mayo
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 packet of French Onion Soup mix
Olive oil
1 onion
coleslaw mix (cabbage)
1 cup sour cream
3 limes
1/4 cup soy
2 tbsp sriracha
2 tbsp mirin


  1. Prep the turkey by mixing together: turkey, breadcrumbs, mayo, french onion soup mix. Form into 2 inch meat balls and set aside. 
  2. Prep the potato buns by peeling and slicing the potatoes, brushing with olive oil and sprinkling some salt on each slice. 
  3. Caramelize onions; thinly slice 1 onion. Cook on a non-stick pan (NO OIL) until browned. Once you have a nice color on the onion, add a splash of olive oil and salt, and continue cooking on a lower heat until they are cooked through. 
  4. Make the Lime Crema: mix together 1 cup sour cream, juice of 1 lime, zest of 1 lime, and salt to taste. 
  5. Make the Citrus soy dressing by mixing together: juice of 2 limes, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 2 tbsp mirin, 2 tbsp sriracha and 2 tbsp olive oil. 
  6. Dress the cabbage with BOTH citrus soy dressing and lime crema (I used equal parts of both). I am not including measured amounts in this section as it will depend on how much cabbage slaw you are using and how wet you want the slaw to be. 
  7. Start cooking the potato buns: on medium, to medium-low heat, start searing the potatoes. This part took much longer than expected. Make sure to flip often and check readiness with a fork. You will know when they are ready. Remove from heat and set aside. 
  8. Sear the burgers (I suggest doing this once the potatoes are cooked through): heat a skillet on medium with some olive oil. Once HOT, place the meat balls in the pan, and smash them down with a small plate. Make sure to leave room around each meatball and to not overcrowd the pan. Flip once (after a few minutes and nicely crisped up) and cook through. 
  9. Assemble your burgers: 
    1. Potato bun
    2. Caramelized onion
    3. Turkey burger
    4. Slaw
    5. Lime crema
    6. Potato bun (optional - I prefer open faced)
Bon apetit!
