Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup diced celery
  • 1 large clove garlic, grated
  • 2 green onions, sliced and divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup shredded carrot
  • 6 slider buns
  • 1/4 cup diced carrot
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup Buffalo sauce, plus more for serving
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat mayo
  • 5 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
  • 3/4 cup shredded red cabbage

Directions

  • Combine the turkey breast, carrot, celery, onion, garlic, salt, Buffalo sauce and 1 green onion in a medium bowl. Form into six patties.
  • Heat a grill pan or nonstick skillet to medium-high heat. Add the sliders and cook until they're golden brown on both sides and cooked through, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  • While the patties are cooking, whisk the mayo, buttermilk, salt and crumbled blue cheese together in a small bowl. Add remaining green onion, shredded carrot and red cabbage. Toss in the dressing and season with salt and pepper.
  • When the patties are finished cooking, brush with a little bit more hot sauce. Place the patties on slider buns, top with slaw and serve.
