Teriyaki Turkey Sliders w/Ponzu Sauce

I've been playing around with ground turkey to come up with healthier meals that my family will still love. Usually my husband wrinkles his nose when I say 'turkey burger'. But he's loved both of my new creations!!! (check out my Spinach Feta Turkey Burgers too!) A serving of two Teriyaki Turkey Sliders comes in at 354 Calories, 6.7g fat, 39.2 carbs, 34.6g protein.

Teriyaki Turkey Sliders
40 oz extra lean ground turkey
1/3 C onion, grated
2 cloves of garlic, grated
2 inches ginger root, grated
2 TBLS fresh chives, snipped
1/2 C plain bread crumbs
1/3 C Kikkoman Teriyaki Sauce
1/4 C Egg Beaters
21 King's Hawaiian Sweet Rolls
1/2 C thinly sliced pineapple

1. Combine all ingredients except pineapple & King's Hawaiian Rolls
2. Mix well
3. Form into 2 oz meatballs
4. Gently flatten meatballs into patties
5. Fry or grill until no longer pink
6. Meanwhile, slice open King's Hawaiian Rolls.
7. Serve Teriyaki Turkey sliders in King's Hawiian Rolls.
8. Top with thinly sliced pineapple.
9. I served these with a Ponzu dipping sauce.


Ponzu Sauce
4 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon minced ginger
2 tablespoon very finely snipped fresh chives

Combine all ingredients. It's also great with sushi or as a fondue dipper!
