Chicken or Turkey Sliders


A slider is a bite-sized burger. The Americans originally came up with the term and no-one seems to be sure why, I can only assume it is because they slide down so easily when eaten! If you have older children, you could make these twice the size.

  • i cooked these last night and yummy, I couldn’t find tomato chutney so I winged it and used tomato pesto, blended one up with veggies for our 9 mo, and our 2 year old loved then, so did my husband and I I made them a bit bigger, so didn’t get 20 but I will make these again for sure, and I will freeze them for a perfect light lunch for my 2 year old as he doesn’t eat much at lunch time at all!

  • I am very pleased with this recipe. I used wholemeal bread and parsley. I didn’t cook the onion first and left out the garlic. I have made my own burgers and meat balls before… None have been as tender and moist as these. I will add bread to my own recipes in the future. Thank you

  • Really messed up these. The recipe said to put all ingredients in bowl and blitz so I put the sunflower oil in too! Then quickly realised my error!!

  • My 17 month old has been going through a very fussy eating phase but loved these. I varied the recipe slightly and grated in a carrot, marrow and some broccoli.
