The Laziest Recipes Ever: BBQ Jalapeno Turkey Sliders

I get excited about the idea of sliders whenever I see them on a menu. Cute little patties, adorable mini buns- whats not to love?

But sliders always seem to fall flat for me. The cute little pattie to adorable mini bun ratio is off, and often I wonder why I didn't just get an adult sized burger.

If sliders were more like these little lovelies, I think they would be much more enjoyable!

The beauty of this lazy recipe is you can throw it together with any lunch meat (or burger meat!) that you have in your fridge- same goes for the cheese and add ons! 

BBQ Turkey Sliders
  • 1/4 pound deli sliced turkey breast meat 
  • 1/4-1/2 cup favorite BBQ sauce
  • 4 mini slider pretzel buns
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 
  • 8 slices thick cut bacon, cooked 
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced 
  • Additional condiments (I mixed up some mustard/mayo)
Preheat oven to 450. 

In a frying pan, heat the deli meat until warmed through. Add in enough BBQ sauce to thoroughly coat the deli meat. Set aside.

Divide the buns. Butter the tops and place them butter side up on a baking sheet. On the bottom bun, place a slice of cheddar, turkey breast, a few slivers of jalapeno and the mozzarella. Place the bottom buns on the same baking sheet as their tops and toast in the oven until the tops are just starting to brown and the cheese is melted on the bottom buns, 5-10 minutes.

Remove from oven and place two slices of bacon atop the turkey. Spread any desired condiments onto the tops and assemble your sliders.
