Sometimes the most humble things can be the most helpful in a healing diet. Take these sliders. You may look at them, and think, Yawn. Why do I need turkey sliders?

Those of us on AIP or Paleo diets are basically eating protein, fruit and veggies. We’re always needing some easy protein choices. These babies can benefit you a couple of ways. Not only are they an easy, cost-effective protein source, but they also contain bonus fruit and veg: carrots, apples, and green onion.

Special ingredient

One thing I like to do is introduce you to new ingredients, if you’ve never met them before. It keeps the fun in a healing lifestyle, and inspires creativity. The special ingredient in this recipe is alder smoked salt. (Wha….?) That’s right. It’s salt that has literally been smoked over alder wood. Now, you could just use plain salt, but why not try something new? ๐Ÿ˜€

These versatile Turkey Apple Sliders (AIP/Paleo) can be protein for lunch, dinner, or even part of a satisfying breakfast. Bonus: hidden veggies!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. ground turkey

  • 1/4 cup grated, peeled apple

  • 1/4 cup finely grated carrot

  • 2 TBSP finely chopped green onion

  • 3/4 tsp alder smoked salt*

  • 1/4 tsp onion powder

  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

  • 2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil

  • Possible add-ons: lettuce, avocado, Refrigerator Pickles, pickled red onions, Avocado Cilantro Dressing, etc.

Directions

  • In a large bowl, mix together turkey, apple, carrot, green onion, smoked salt, onion powder and garlic powder with a fork. Wet your hands, then form meat mixture into 8 equal patties. (Wetting your hands keeps the meat from sticking to them.)
  • Place olive oil in a large skillet or chef’s pan over medium high heat. When oil is hot, gently place patties in the pan. Cook for 4 minutes on each side, or until there is no pink in the center of each slider. (See blog above for serving suggestions.)

Notes

  • You could just use plain salt, but why not try something new? ๐Ÿ˜€
