American Turkey Sliders



1.25 lb. package Jennie-O 93% lean ground turkey
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. fresh cracked pepper
1/4 c. BBQ sauce
1/4 c. chives (I use freeze-dried)
4 slices American cheese singles
BBQ sauce of choice
King's Hawaiian Rolls
4 more American cheese singles

In a medium size bowl, combine the ground turkey, salt, pepper, 1/4 c. BBQ sauce, and chives together until well combined. Form into approximately 14-16 small patties and set aside. Meanwhile, unwrap the plastic off of the American slices and quarter each square. Then, to each quarter, fold into quarters once more but leave the pieces together so that they form a small stack. Place 1 stack of the American cheese in the middle of each burger patty. Fold the meat over the cheese so that the cheese is fully enclosed.

Heat a large flat skillet on medium heat. Add the patties either in batches or at once depending on the size of the pan. After about 3-4 minutes, flip the burgers over and continue to cook for at least 4 more minutes. Check the insides of one to make sure there is no pink left because the cheese will make the time vary.

Cut the buns in half. On the bottom side of the bun, place a patty. Top with a quarter piece of American cheese. Spread BBQ sauce on the top bun and finish stacking the slider. You could also add onion, pickles, lettuce, and substitute the BBQ sauce with ketchup and mustard. The possibilities are endless. When you cut into these the cheese just oozes out and keeps the sliders very moist.
