Turkey Burger Sliders with Vidalia Onion-Tomato Jam
These mini burgers are sure to be a hit at your next get-together, thanks to my delicious Vidalia onion-tomato jam. Y'all are going to want to make a batch of it to keep in the fridge to kick up all of your favorite sandwiches.
Make the Vidalia onion-tomato jam: Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat until the butter is melted. Add the onions, then season with a little salt and cook, stirring frequently, until they are golden brown and soft, about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, cut the tomatoes in half crosswise. Scoop out the tomato seeds with a spoon and discard the seeds. Chop the tomatoes. Stir the tomatoes, garlic, brown sugar, vegetable stock and vinegar into the softened onions. Reduce the heat to low and cook until the onions are caramelized, the tomatoes are very soft and the mixture is syrupy, 20 to 25 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and stir in the thyme. Set aside.
Make the turkey burger sliders: Gently combine the ground turkey, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, onion powder and egg in a medium bowl. Shape the mixture into twelve 2 1/2-inch patties.
Heat a lightly greased griddle over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the patties lightly with salt and pepper. Add the patties and cook until they are done and a thermometer registers 165 degrees F, 2 to 3 minutes on each side.
To assemble the sliders, place the patties on the bottoms of the Hawaiian rolls. Top with the goat cheese, some of the Vidalia onion-tomato jam, arugula and the roll tops. Pierce the cherry tomatoes with wooden toothpicks into the tops of the rolls.
