Simple, refreshing and filling, Greek Turkey Burgers Sliders are a fun alternative to the traditional American hamburger.
When you love to cook you start to collect quite a collection of kitchen gear. Add in the fact that you cook for a living and your kitchen really starts bursting at the seams. Any of my friends and family that has spent any time in my kitchen will laugh at me when I say this, but I have a wish list of kitchen equipment that I can’t wait to get my hands on. At the top of that list sits the KitchenAid attachments like their meat grinder. I can’t wait to be able to freshly grind my favorite cuts of meat to make recipes like these Greek Turkey Burger Sliders. I absolutely adore KitchenAid but honestly who doesn’t. The very first KitchenAid mixer I owned as an adult was given to me by my then boyfriend and my now husband. We were just newly dating and I had received a very sweet flower bouquet for my birthday. The next day I received a big, huge, ginormous box at my front door. After fighting it in the house and up the stairs I tore into that box with incredible excitement and curiosity. I was floored that my Paul had bought me a Professional KitchenAid mixer. I called, he didn’t answer but I proceeded to leave the excited screaming child on Christmas morning message. The cutest thing is he held onto that message for years. As you can imagine I love KitchenAid mixers not only for their top rating performances but they hold a special place in my heart too.
