The weather was absolutely beautiful this weekend. I did get my thunder storm on Friday....so it was all good.
We put the umbrellas out on the deck and had ourselves a little BBQ.
These turkey burger sliders with Caribbean Jerk Marinade are absolutely dreamy. We love using the Sweet Hawaiian Rolls and now they even make hamburger and hot dog buns.
On the menu:
Caribbean turkey burgers with Jerk bacon, red onions, grilled pineapple and teriyaki sauce for dipping
Italian cream soda
Caribbean Jerk Turkey Burger Bacon Sliders
1 1/2 pounds turkey burger
1 package Lipton onion soup mix
1/2 cup water
Caribbean Jerk Marinade
1 package bacon
1 red onion
1 can pineapple rings
sweet Hawaiian rolls or buns
Teriyaki sauce for dipping
The night before you grill or early that morning, marinade your bacon in the Caribbean Jerk Marinade. Place bacon and marinade in a large zip lock bag. Use enough to coat bacon really well. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 6 hours.
Combine turkey burger, soup mix and water. Mix until well combined. Make small or large patties depending on the buns you choose. For this recipe we used rolls because we are making sliders.
I use wax paper to press my patties and stack them on a plate with wax paper in between, adding season salt and pepper. Just pop them in the fridge until ready to use. My dad taught me this :)
Place foil on one side of your grill to start the bacon. Cook bacon for approximately 20-25 minutes. Turkey burgers should cook around 6-7 minutes on each side or until no longer pink.
Grill pineapple rings right before serving.
