What’s Inside: An easy, flavorful Greek-inspired turkey slider recipe featuring Kalamata olives and Avocado Tzatziki to take bland ground turkey to flavor-town! Use my AIP English Muffin as buns or use a lettuce wrap and serve along side crispy baked carrot fries.
Finger foods, anyone? I love a good slider and these are so flavorful, you’ll devour them! I whipped them up for U.S. Wellness Meats, a great source to find grass-fed & finished, organic meat, seafood, cooking fats, and much more. And I was honored to recently be their Featured Chef!!
Flavorful Ground Turkey Sliders
The secret to transforming ground turkey from boring to mouthwatering is this recipe! We’re using big flavors in the ground meat burgers themselves and topping them off with a fresh dollop of avocado Tzatziki. Everyone will enjoy this whether it’s a finger food or meal.
An easy, flavorful Greek-inspired turkey slider recipe featuring Kalamata olives and Avocado Tzatziki to take bland ground turkey to flavor-town! Use my AIP English Muffin as buns or use a lettuce wrap and serve along side crispy baked carrot fries.
First, make the avocado tzatziki. Prepare the cucumber by grating and adding to a towel-lined corander with approx. 1/2 tsp salt so the water can release and drain out for approx. 15 minutes. Ring out the excess liquid from cucumber using the towel or a fresh towel until it's dry. Add it in with the other tzatziki ingredients in a food processor or mix by hand and store in the fridge, covered in an airtight container until you're ready to use It.
Prep carrot fries by cutting carrots into matchstick size and roast on a parchment-lined baking sheet on 400f degrees after tossing with duck fat and sea salt. Cook for 25-30 minutes while doing the rest below.
Make AIP English Muffins (link below) and set aside if using, or ready your butter lettuce or sweet potato rounds to make it Whole30!
Season the ground turkey with all slider ingredients listed.
Shape the meat into 1/2 inch thick sliders (small enough to fit your buns/English muffins if using)
Heat a cast iron pan over medium-high and lightly grease with coconut oil. Cook the slides for approx. 5 minutes on each side (cook thoroughly for poultry).
Build your burger with the Avocado Tzatziki and your favorite toppings. Serve alongside your carrot fries.

Thanks for sharing! Does it keep long?
This looks so good! Do you use the sauce in any other recipes?
This looks so delicious! Sorry if I am missing something, but I just see a step to make the avocado tzatsiki, but no instructions for how to make it. Are those in this recipe or somewhere else? Thanks!
I hope you try it! the avocado tzatziki recipe is in the list of ingredients ❤️
I am also confused, I see the list of ingredients for the sauce but no instructions? Is it puréed?
Hi Chelsea, thanks for calling that out – I added more directions to clarify how to make the tzatziki.
Yum! I love when something is healthy and delicious. This could work as a meal or an app.
