Southeast Asian Ground Turkey Sliders

2 lbs. ground turkey thighs

½ cup sweet Thai chili sauce

1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs, plus more if needed



Vegetable oil

8 slices Swiss cheese, cut in half lengthwise

Slider buns


Green leaf lettuce

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, Thai chili sauce and breadcrumbs. Add salt and pepper. Blend well. If mixture is too wet, add more breadcrumbs.

Form turkey mixture into 2 ounce patties. Place patties on a cutting board.

Heat a large, non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add enough oil to coat the bottom of the skillet. Working in batches, fry patties for about 4 minutes per side. Place fried patties on a sheet pan and bake in preheated oven for about 6 minutes. Remove patties and top with cheese. Place patties back into the oven and bake until the cheese melts, about 2 more minutes.

Serve sliders on slider bun and topped with mayo and lettuce.
