1 lb ground turkey

1/2 small onion (chopped)

2 cloves garlic (chopped)

2 baby bella mushrooms (chopped)

1/4 jalapeno pepper (chopped)

4 slices of thick cut bacon

2 TBSP worcestershire sauce

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp paprika

1/4 cups smoked gouda

1/4 grated parmesan cheese (for topping)

Dozen slider buns



Sriracha Mayo

1/4 cup mayo

2 TBSP sriracha



In a large mixing bowl, add the ground turkey and set aside. In a large frying pan, fry up your bacon until it's cooked thoroughly and slightly crispy. While the bacon is doing it's thing, start chopping up the onions, garlic, mushrooms and jalapeno into small, diced pieces. Once the bacon is done, set it aside and let it drain on paper towel. Discard a little over half of the bacon grease and use the rest to sautee the veggies in. Once the onions, garlic, mushrooms, and jalapeno are sauteed chop the bacon in small pieces and add to the mixing bowl of ground turkey with the sauteed veggies and stir into the raw ground turkey meat. Add the worcestershire sauce, salt, paprika, and grated smoked gouda. Stir thoroughly. Begin forming the meat into small patties. The patties should be just about 3 inches in diameter to fit on the mini buns. Once you've made the patties prepare the sriracha mayo. Add 2 tablespoons of sriracha to 1/4 cup mayo and mix together. Set that aside and get a large pan on medium-high heat to cook the burgers. You can definitely grill these bad boys up as well. Once the burgers are almost done toast the kaiser rolls in the pan. Place the sriracha mayo on each side of the buns. Place a slice of smoked gouda on top with fresh grated asiago cheese. Don't be afraid to add more bacon on top too! So good!
