Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I took two liberties with this recipe and still ended up with a delicious result. I could not find dried tart cherries (I'll go to our local bulk store next time) so I subbed with dried cranberries, I made burgers in stead of sliders. Wonderful results. Ground chicken/turkey can be a bit boring not so with this recipe! I will be making it again net time with cherries

Very tasty sliders, I used fresh spinach , chopped with ground turkey, minced garlic with Italian seasoning and dried cranberries instead of cherries and finished with old sharp cheddar shredded. (we're not fond of dried cherries) We loved the mayo dejon mustard mix to which i added a couple of drops of tobasco. Thanks for posting ,i will be making these again!
