Turkey Sliders with Roasted Tomatoes

By now, I think you all know how much I love to make desserts…the more decadent, the better. But I also have a penchant for creating yummy appetizers. I’ve hosted my book club about 15 times…and besides a buffet of sweet nibbles, I love to add savory appetizers to the mix…and I have a slew of recipes in my collection. When our Sunday Supper theme for this week was announced, it was no surprise my thoughts went straight to desserts. If I were to host a Super Bowl party, brownies and cookies would definitely be on the menu. But with Valentine’s Day approaching, there’s been a lot of chocolate melting and cocoa dust in my kitchen. It was time for something savory…and these Turkey Sliders with Roasted Tomatoes were perfect.

I have some dear, on-line foodie friends. We share recipes on a number of websites…and a few have their own blogs. It was one of these friends who shared these mini-turkey burgers. Linda also was the genius who added roasted plum tomatoes to the mix…perfect for the mid-winter when the tomato selection is pitiful. We actually ate these for dinner, but they’d be perfect for a Super Bowl buffet…cook them up right before half time…and your guests will be thrilled. Scroll down to see all the wonderful ideas for tonight’s dinner from the Sunday Supper team…whether you’re hosting guests or just hunkering down and watching the game with your family. There’s still plenty of time to run to the market and make some of these fantastic dishes!

  1. Wow Lizzy! I can have at least 5 of those at one go!

  2. Thank you, Liz! My husband hails from Southern New Jersey – the Garden State. So, he loves his tomatoes. And when he’s not on a vegetarian streak, he loves his turkey burgers.

    As always, your recipes are keepers =)

  3. I need to make some of these asap Liz! They´re the perfect bite with roasted tomatoes, and a good change from beef. Isn´t roasting the best thing to ever happen to vegetables? And I would have them for dinner too!

  4. Here in Brazil we have also created several recipes for eating watching the football games. This sandwiches are divine and tempting. We love turkey here at home and of course I will take the recipe however I have adapted to the types of ingredients we found more easily here in Brazil. a good weekend
