Have you seen that Tasty video going around about the sliders 4 different ways? They look amazing but definitely not healthy. One thing I love to do is take a yummy but unhealthy meal and make a clean-er version of it. The only thing unclean about these are the rolls– and you could buy fresh bakery whole grain rolls to clean that up a bit.
These are a HUGE hit at parties too! Make a double batch and take them along to your next event.
Here is my take on the sliders:
Clean Eating Turkey Meatball Sliders:
- 1.5 pounds ground turkey
- Whole Wheat Slider Rolls (package of 12)
- Fresh Mozzarella cheese, sliced into 12 slices
- Rao’s tomato sauce
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 clove of fresh garlic, grated
- Italian seasoning blend, 1 tbsp.
- Salt and pepper to taste
Mix ground turkey with Italian seasonings, then press it into the bottom of a glass baking pan that has been sprayed with Olive Oil cooking spray. Bake the meat at 350 for 20 minutes until cooked through and then drain the liquid off. I had to slice the meat into strips since it shrunk and did not fill up the entire pan space. Use whole wheat slider rolls, no sugar added tomato sauce (Rao’s is a great brand!) and fresh mozzarella cheese. I brushed the tops with olive oil that had fresh garlic and Italian seasonings stirred into it. Bake the whole thing again at 350 for 20 minutes. My kids and husband loved these and have already asked when I can make them again!!
