These sliders are like a bite of Thanksgiving. The spicy dark rum takes the cranberry relish to new heights—and you will never look back.

10 Sliders

You will need:
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup dark spiced rum
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 pound ground turkey
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons chives, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons butter
10 slider buns
micro greens

  1. Start with the relish. Place cranberries, onion, rum, water, and sugar in a saucepan, and bring to a boil. Let it simmer for 10–15 minutes. Don’t let the liquid cook off. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a bowl mix turkey, onion, chives, salt, and pepper.
  3. Form the turkey mixture into 10 small patties.
  4. Heat butter in a pan, and cook the patties until golden on each side and cooked through, about 7–8 minutes.
  5. Cut the buns in half, and add some mayo and micro greens to the bottoms.
  6. Layer with turkey patties, relish, and the tops of the buns.
