Instead of being served on traditional buns, these turkey sliders are sandwiched inside mini avocados for a clever (and low-carb) meal--because why put avocado on your burger when you can put your burger on an avocado? Quick pickled onions are a pretty and tasty topping, and chipotle mayo seals the deal. Bonus: The burgers are cooked on a baking sheet, so it's easy to whip up a whole batch. Source:, April 2019

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Combine onion, vinegar, water, sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let stand for at least 15 minutes. Drain.

  • Gently mix turkey, cilantro, cumin, 1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Form into 6 oval-shaped patties the size of your avocados (about 2 by 3 inches) and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until an instant-read thermometer registers 165 degrees F, about 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, stir together mayonnaise and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle in a small bowl.

  • To assemble, cut a thin slice from the bottom half of each avocado to make it more stable. Top an avocado half with 1 teaspoon of the mayonnaise mixture, about 1 tablespoon of the pickled onion, a burger, 2 tomato slices, lettuce and another avocado half. Sprinkle each slider with sesame seeds.

Tastes great! My only complaint is that using the avocado as a bun is a great idea but terrible when executed. the burger immediately falls apart and is better eaten with a fork (even though it still falls apart. If you are eating the burger with a fork use only half of an avocado instead of the whole thing. Read More
