I have decided to challenge myself with trying recipes with ingredients I haven’t or very rarely cook with. I started thinking about haloumi and after a few random ideas I came up with these burgers. I haven’t cooked with haloumi or turkey mince until now and I’m kicking myself for it! My Turkey and Haloumi Sliders on Sweet Potato Buns are perfect appetisers for big groups or a fun dinner for a few people. These are even better than I thought they would be – I’m so excited for you to try them!
Ingredients – Makes 12 mini burgers
2 cloves of garlic, minced/finely chopped
¼ red onion, finely diced
1 egg yolk
Salt and pepper (a good sprinkle of each)
500g turkey mince
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 Lebanese cucumber, shaved with a peeler
3 tablespoons of vinegar
6 tablespoons of water
1 large, round sweet potato, sliced into 24mm 5mm slices
180g haloumi, sliced into 24 thin slices
Handful of baby spinach (to serve)
Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees
Add garlic, onion, egg yolk, salt, pepper and turkey mince to a bowl and combine with your hands
Make 12 small patties with your hands, keep in mind how round you sweet potato is as you will need to make them roughly to the size of the sweet potato
Heat olive oil in a pan on a medium-high heat and cook in two batches for 3-4 minutes on each side
Meanwhile, add the vinegar, water, a pinch of salt and shaved cucumber to another bowl to pickle the cucumber (this step is optional, you can just use the shave cucumber without pickling, this just softens it and gives it a nice tangy flavour)
Add the sweet potato slices to a bowl and toss with some olive oil or spray with olive oil spray
Lay the slices out evenly on a baking tray and bake for 8-10 minutes then flip all the slices over and bake for a further 8-10 minutes (depending on their thickness)
Once the patties are cooked, set aside and cook the haloumi slices in two batches, again with olive oil on a medium-high heat but only for 1 minute on each side (or until golden brown)
Once everything has cooked (patties, sweet potato and haloumi), make your burgers, starting with a sweet potato ‘bun’, then some spinach, two slices of haloumi, one turkey patty, some pickled cucumber and then the other sweet potato bun and serve
