- 1 medium onion, grated, divided
- 1 lb extra-lean ground turkey
- 2 tbsp low-sodium tamari soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
- Olive oil cooking spray
- 16 small whole-wheat or multigrain rolls, cut in half
- 4 slices low-fat cheese, cut into quarters (optional)
- 16 to 20 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
- 16 small pieces lettuce
- 4 slices low-fat cheese, cut into quarters, optional
- Set aside 2 tsp onion for homemade ketchup. In a large bowl, mix together remaining onion, turkey, soy sauce and spices. Form 16 little patties, about 2 inches in diameter, with clean, slightly damp hands. Place patties on a tray or plate.
- Heat nonstick or cast iron pan over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Mist pan with cooking spray; let heat for 1 more minute. Add patties and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until juices run clear when pressed down with a spatula.
- To assemble sliders, place 1 patty on bottom half of a roll, top with 2 to 3 cherry tomato halves, 1 lettuce leaf and 1 piece cheese, if desired; then add top half of roll. Serve with 1 to 2 tsp Homemade Ketchup. Repeat with remaining patties and accompaniments.
