Memorial Day Turkey Sliders
1 pound 93%-lean ground turkey
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium teriyaki sauce
2 scallions, sliced
1 large clove garlic, minced
6 1/4-inch-thick fresh pineapple rings
1 small red onion, cut into 1/4-inch-thick rings
6 toasted slider buns, preferably whole-wheat or pretzel buns
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
6 leaves Boston lettuce or romaine
Preheat grill to medium-high.
Combine turkey, teriyaki sauce, scallions and garlic in a medium bowl; gently knead together. Do not over mix. Form into 6 burgers, about 3 inches wide. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the burgers until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 165°F, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Grill pineapple rings until lightly charred, about 2 minutes per side. Grill onions until lightly charred and starting to soften, about 2 minutes per side.
Assemble the burgers on toasted buns with 1 teaspoon mayonnaise, 1 lettuce leaf, 1 pineapple ring and about 3 onion rings each.
