I call these my "healthy winter sliders". I grill them on my "George Foreman". My family loves them. I have simplified the preparation though. I skip the sauteing step altogether. I marinate the lean beef or turkey for a few hours, or overnight, with the spices, finely chopped onions, minced garlic, salt & pepper. I sometimes add fresh thyme. Right before forming the sliders, I add the bulgur (or whole wheat couscous), the egg & the prunes ( or golden raisins). I serve them on Hawaiian mini buns. I will soon try adding cooked quinoa instead of the bulgur or whole wheat couscous and I will try them with a healthier bun. If you are not afraid of different flavor profiles, try these!
Middle Eastern Burgers
Exotic-tasting spices and chopped prunes give Middle-Eastern flair to this succulent, healthy burger recipe. Serve the burgers with the cool, savory yogurt sauce and slices of ripe tomato, lettuce and sharp red onion.
