Finger foods are hard for me. I’m the girl at your party posted up by the plate of sliders, deviled eggs, lil smokies, pigs in a blanket… etc. etc. If it’s tiny and can be eaten with my hands, I’m not talking to anyone. I’m sitting there stuffing my face. I start to feel competitive about eating all your finger food, glaring at anyone who dares infringe on my territory. And before you know it, I’ve put down half your platter and made no friends. Don’t invite me anywhere.
The only way to keep finger foods safe around me is if they’re made and served in individual portions. Like these mildly healthy sweet potato BBQ turkey sliders. So, so good. And I can make them in pairs. Much safer this way.
These pair well with tiny drinks and tiny sides.
Sweet Potato BBQ Turkey Sliders
Adapted from FitMenCook, yields 2 sliders
What you need:
-1/3 of a large sweet potato, cut into four equal rounds
-1/4 red bell pepper
-4 oz cold cut turkey (I used Applegate Farms)
-1 oz Pecorino cheese (or mozzarella or any other cheese of choice!)
-2 tbsp BBQ sauce
What you do:
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lay your four sweet potato rounds down flat – these will act as the bun of your sliders.
2. Cut bell pepper into two equal pieces and place on top of two of your sweet potato rounds, then top each of those with 2 oz of turkey, 1/2 oz of cheese and 1 tbsp of BBQ sauce. Place the other two rounds on the top and use a wooden skewer to fasten them into place.
3. Place both on a baking sheet and coat with a tiny bit of canola oil. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30-45 minutes.
If you make more than two, don’t invite me over.
