  • ¼ cup chopped green onions

  • 2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning

Spicy Remoulade

  • 1 cup mayonnaise

  • ¼ cup pickle relish

  • 2 tablespoon capers, drained

  • 1 tablespoon Creole or spicy brown mustard

  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh parsley

  • 2 teaspoon bottled hot pepper sauce

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


  1. In a very large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over medium-low heat. Add sweet peppers and onion; cook about 10 minutes or until very soft and tender. Remove from skillet; keep warm.

  2. In a large bowl, combine turkey, green onions, Cajun seasoning, bottled hot pepper sauce, salt, and black pepper; mix well. Form into 12 patties slightly larger than the buns. Sprinkle both sides of each patty generously with Old Bay® seasoning.

  3. In the same skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add patties; cook about 8 minutes or until done (165 degrees F)*, turning once halfway through cooking time.

  4. Serve in buns with sweet pepper mixture and Spicy Remoulade. Makes 12 sliders.

Spicy Remoulade

  1. In a medium bowl combine mayonnaise, pickle relish, capers, mustard, parsley, bottled hot pepper sauce, and lemon juice.

Test Kitchen Tip:

The internal color of a burger is not a reliable doneness indicator. A poultry patty cooked to 165 degrees F is safe, regardless of color. To measure the doneness of a patty, insert an instant-read thermometer through the side of the patty into the center of the patty.
