These delicious, moist turkey burger sliders are given a Hawaiian make-over with grilled pineapple, teriyaki sauce, and a jalapeno-lime slaw.



For the Sliders:

  • 1/2 pound ground turkey breast
  • 1/2 pound ground turkey thigh
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce (plus more for serving)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Mozzarella or provolone cheese (optional)
  • 8 pineapple slices
  • 8 sweet Hawaiian slider rolls

For the Jalapeno Slaw:

  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 1 medium jalapeno, seeded and julienned
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. In a hot skillet, heat one tablespoon of olive oil and saute the minced shallot and garlic until softened, but not browned. Let cool.
  2. Slice the pineapple into half-inch thick slices and grill the pieces until browned and caramelized on each side. Set aside.
  3. Make the slaw. Combine the olive oil, sesame oil, sea salt, pepper, and lime in a mason jar and shake well to combine the dressing. Toss the dressing with the cabbage, cilantro, carrot, and jalapeno.
  4. In a large bowl, mix the ground turkey with the shallot/garlic mixture, freshly grated ginger, teriyaki sauce, sesame oil, and a pinch of sea salt and pepper. Form into slider patties. You should get between 8-10, depending on size.
  5. Grill the sliders in a hot, greased grill pan until browned on both sides and a thermometer reads 165°F. This should take about 3-6 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of your slider. If using, place your cheese of choice on the sliders to melt.
  6. In the meantime, toast the slider buns.
  7. Assemble the sliders. Top a Hawaiian roll with a turkey slider, generous drizzle of teriyaki sauce, grilled pineapple, and jalapeno slaw. Serve additional slaw on the side. Enjoy!
