Fancy Pants App: Beer, Apple, Cheddar Sliders with Pretzel Buns

Print Friendly and PDF
Those pretzel rolls from Monday are good enough to eat alone.  But, if you ever wanted to eat them in a sandwich, this would be the sandwich to eat them in.  Apple, Cheddar Cheese, Ground Turkey Burgers, and a pretzel bun.  I flirted with a cranberry ketchup but in the end, simple seemed to be the way to everyone's hearts.

Speaking of hearts, this past weekend I had a very full one.  John was here and we celebrated his birthday with a night on the town.  The "town" of course was New York City for our first real outing since I became a "New Yorker" again.  We went to a delicious Indian restaurant and then went out to a show; I had even scored us a Groupon for a great little hotel for us to spend the night.

By the time we got back to the hotel and had a drink, it seemed like a long, fun, adventure.  Like we were on vacation; the next day though, I realized it was no longer vacation.  Sure my normal days are never that glamorous and I really miss John.  But, when he's with me and we're exploring a new place, I can really see us succeeding and thriving in New York City.  It may take some time, and I have certainly had my fair share of growing pains.  But it gave me hope; we'll get there. 
Beer, Apple, Cheddar Sliders with Pretzel Buns
Serves:  12 (12 rolls, 12 people)
1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
1/4 cup beer
2 tablespoons bread crumbs
2 teaspoons salt
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 granny smith apple
12 slices of cheddar cheese
12 pretzel rolls

Combine the turkey, beer, bread crumbs, salt, and pepper until well-combined.  Separate into 12 sliders.  Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.  Meanwhile, peel the apple and slice into 12 slices.  Layer apple then cheese onto pretzel rolls.  Grill burgers about 5 minutes per side, until cooked through.  Place onto the pretzel roll with ketchup, if desired.

Until the next time my oven is on...
