Club Burger Sliders with Avocado Ranch Dressing
Source: Slightly adapted from Everyday with Rachael Ray Ingredients:
1 pound ground turkey
1/2 vidalia onion
1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
Salt and pepper
Handful of parsley, chopped (optional)
1/2 cup sour cream
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 to 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
handful of flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
handful of fresh chives, finely chopped (optional)
handful of fresh dill, finely chopped (optional)
Bibb or butter lettuce leaves, for serving
1 plum or vine-ripened tomato, thinly sliced
Preheat an outdoor grill or griddle pan to medium high. Place a skillet over medium-high heat. Spray pan with cooking spray and add the bacon to the pan and cook until crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels to cool, then chop.
While the bacon cooks, place the turkey in a large bowl. Grate the onion on top of the turkey to get 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons onion juice. Add the poultry seasoning, salt, pepper, and parsley. Add the cooked bacon, mix and form 8 slider patties, about 2 1/2 to 3 inches wide. Cook on the grill or griddle, turning once, until cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes.
While the sliders cook, place the avocado in a food processor or blender. Add the sour cream, lemon juice, garlic, and herbs. Season with salt and pepper. Process into a smooth, thick sauce.
Taste and add more herbs or seasonings if necessary.
