ICM Recipe – Turkey Sliders with Balsamic Bell Peppers and Feta

For ICM this week, we are using bell peppers!

Like Sunny said, these are high in Vitamins A and C, fiber, potassium and folate, and contain about 30 calories per serving. I’m thinking these won’t help you out much if you’re trying to gain weight.

Wouldn’t that be an amazing problem to have?

So, for this challenge I made some divine turkey burgers with bell peppers sauteed in balsamic vinegar and topped with Feta cheese. It is quite a combination.

I ♥ these burgers. I told my husband that and he said “I just got a phone call; they love you too.”

Smart ass.

Turkey Sliders with Balsamic Bell Peppers and Feta

1 lb. ground turkey (I used the 85% lean vs. ground turkey breast; it has more flavor)

1 package slider rolls

1 bell pepper, sliced

6 oz. container crumbled Feta cheese

2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 tbsp & 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce, divided

1/4 stick butter

1 tsp olive oil

1 tbsp salt

1 tbsp coarse ground pepper

1/4 cup water

Start by making the burgers. Combine the turkey, 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Form into patties.

In a medium sized pan over medium high heat, add the burgers. After about 1-2 minutes, flip to the other side to brown. Reduce heat to medium and cook until done throughout.

Remember, this is poultry not beef! Remove from heat to a plate and cover with aluminum foil.

In the same pan, heat the olive oil over medium-heat slightly; add the peppers. Add the water and cover partially with a lid to steam, stirring every couple of minutes for about 5-7 minutes. Add the remaining Worcestershire sauce, butter and vinegar, but don’t cover. Cook until the peppers are softened and the moisture has evaporated. Turn the heat off and remove the peppers but don’t rinse the pan.

Blot each side of the bread in the pan, picking up the remaining butter mixture – you’ll get bits of browned turkey burger in there too. You’ll like it, I promise.

Assemble like you normally would a burger, adding the peppers and feta on top.

Absolutely Scrumptious.

Now you need to click here to go to ICM and check out what Sunny has whipped up and link up your bell pepper recipes!!

Keep in mind that our challenges are bi-monthly, and between the two of us you get regular no-restrictions fare (me) and from Sunny you get gluten/dairy/wheat free recipes! I’m amazed at how many people are gluten-intolerant; Sunny does an amazing job of coming up with diverse dishes to satisfy her family of 5 children (yes, five) and husband at the dinner table.

Superwoman? Yes.

Happy Monday!
