Ingredients

  • 8 whole-grain slider buns (low sodium)
  • 1 1/4 lb. ground skinless turkey breast
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 c. sliced crimini mushrooms
  • 2 slices low-fat Swiss cheese cut into 8 pieces
  • 1 small avocado pitted, peeled, mashed
  • 1 tomato cut into 8 (1/4-inch thick) slices
  • Wooden skewers

Instructions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Arrange buns cut side up in single layer on baking sheet. Reserve. Shape turkey into 8 (3-inch wide) patties. (Uncooked patties will be larger than bun and will shrink as they cook.) Sprin­kle salt over each patty. Heat large nonstick skillet or griddle pan over medium­-high heat. Cook patties 2­3 minutes. Turn over patties. Cook 2­3 minutes or until patties are no lon­ger pink in centers and register 165 F on instant­-read thermometer. Trans­fer patties to bot­toms of buns.

In same skillet, cook mushrooms over medium heat, stirring frequently, until softened, about 3 minutes. Spoon mushrooms onto each patty; top with cheese. Trans­fer sliders to baking sheet. Bake 1­2 min­utes or until cheese is melted and buns are heated through. Remove from oven. Spread avocado over cheese. Top with tomato slices. Put tops of buns on sliders. Pierce slid­ers with skewers. Serve immediately.
