2 tablespoons sugar-free pickle relish

*Optional ingredients not included in nutrition calculations.


    Preheat outdoor grill or indoor grill pan to medium-high heat.

    In a large mixing bowl, combine the turkey, relish, steak sauce, and seasonings and mix them together with clean hands.

    Divide the meat in half, then divide each half into 5 equal sized sliders. Press them out thin, and make a thumb indention in the center of each slider to keep the meat flat while cooking.

    Grill for 5-7 minutes, then flip and cook an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the burgers are cooked through.

    In the last 1-2 minutes of grilling, top each mini burger with half a slice of cheese and serve with optional toppings on a wheat slider bun.
