Holiday Party Recipe-Turkey Sliders with Brie and Cranberries
Today I am featuring another appetizer that can be started up to 1 week in advance. This saved me a tonne of time come party day...I only had to defrost the burgers, grill them, make the sauce and assemble. Took about 15 minutes total for a truly yummy burger!
First you need to prepare the burger patties. I use about 1 Lb of Ground Turkey, 1 Onion, finely chopped, 2 Garlic cloves, minced, 2 Eggs, 1/2 Cup Panko Bread Crumbs, 1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard, 1 Tsp Soy Sauce, and a mixture of my favourite Spices (Dried Parsley, Red Chilli Flakes, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Salt and Pepper)
Mix thoroughly and form patties slightly smaller than the palm of your hand.
Arrange the patties on a parchment paper lined pan that you are able to seal. Freeze for up to 1 week.
On the morning of your party remove the patties from the freezer and allow to defrost. Heat up your grill (I used my indoor grill) and grill until cooked through.
While the burgers are grilling you can make your cranberry sauce. I used 1 package of fresh cranberries, 2 tbsp Orange Juice and a 1/4 Cup of Brown Sugar. Simmer until cranberries have broken down and the sauce starts to thicken.
To assemble use small dinner rolls, sliced in half. Add your burger patty, some cranberry sauce and 2 slices of Brie Cheese. I stick the whole platter of completed burgers into the oven at 300F for about 5 minutes to allow the cheese to melt a little.
There you have it...Turkey Sliders with a little bit of Christmas flare!
