Eggplant Sliders

These are super easy to make and bursting with flavor!!!
Pair these sliders a salad and a glass of wine for an easy, healthy and delicious dinner.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Medium Eggplant
  • 1 lb Ground Turkey (seasoned with garlic salt, parsley, black pepper)
  • Bacon (optional but bacon makes everything taste better IMO)
  • Sun-dried tomatoes
  • Yellow Bell Pepper
  • Feta Cheese
  • Spinach
  • Minced Garlic
  • Olive Oil

Directions:

  1. Slice Eggplant into rounds (3-4 to 1 inch thick).
  2. Salt the eggplant for 30-40 mins to remove excess moisture and bitterness.
  3. Brush Eggplant with olive oil. Sprinkle with garlic salt & parsley.
  4. Cook bacon.
  5. Slice Tomato.
  6. Slice half of the bell pepper & dice the other half.
  7. Add diced sun-dried tomatoes, bell pepper & garlic to ground turkey.
  8. Form 3 to 4 inch mini patties and fry in bacon grease.  (If you didn’t use bacon; fry in olive oil.)
  9. Cook eggplant on each side for 4-5 mins.
  10. Now pile spinach, turkey, bacon, tomato, bell pepper and feta in between two slices of eggplant and eat!!

These are also kid tested & approved!

P.S. I didn’t measure anything out so get creative and let me know how it turns out!!

To Salt Eggplant:

Add sliced eggplant into a bowl or shallow dish.

Sprinkle with salt and let stand for at least 30 mins.

Rinse eggplant and blot dry.
