Number of Servings: 30

Ingredients

    10 slices low-sodium bacon, cooked and cut into thirds

    20 ounces 97% lean ground turkey breast

    2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

    1 tablespoon McCormick 25% less sodium steak seasoning

    1 small onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)

    1 tablespoon olive oil

    30 large waffle-cut fries

    7 1/2 slices American or Cheddar cheese, cut into quarters

    30 dill pickle slices

    15 grape tomatoes, cut in half



Tips

I make the burgers and cook the bacon ahead of time. Then when it's time to serve them I just bake the fries and warm up the burgers and bacon and top with the cheese, pickle and tomato!


Directions

Makes 30 appetizers: Serving size is 1 per person


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.


Heat a skillet to medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and saute onion until soft. Stir in the steak seasoning and cook an additional minute.


In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, Worcestershire sauce, and onions. Use a cookie scoop (approximately 1 1/2 tablespoons) to divide and roll the meat mixture into 30 meatballs. Place the meatballs on the prepared baking sheet and slightly press down, making the tiny burger patties. Bake for 10-12 minutes on one side. Flip the burgers and cook an additional 10-12 minutes, or until burgers are cooked through.
Meanwhile, bake the waffle fries according to package directions.
Remove the cooked burgers from the oven, and top each one with 1/4 slice cheese, and set aside until the fries are done baking.
Remove the fries from the oven and transfer to a serving platter. Top each fry with a burger, 1/3 piece of bacon, one pickle slice and half of a grape tomato, using a toothpick to secure the burger if desired.
Serve with desired condiments.

    To produce really crisp bacon and reduce the fat content oven bake the bacon on a wire grill set in a pan to catch the bacon fat. Twenty minutes at 400 degrees will make it crisp and ready to use. - 8/29/13

    You can use turkey bacon and set your little burger on the pickle slice instead of a waffle fry, and substitute 2% cheddar squares. Saves on carbs, fat, and calories so you can have more than one bite. That's just a tease! :-) - 11/1/13

    Superb! Used ground turkey, turkey bacon, then topped with shredded asiago cheese....pickle slice, tomato slice! Skipped the fries, as I'm low-carb. Absolutely delicious! - 11/1/13

    Sounds great for an appetizer, will definitely try. 70 calories is not bad for an appetizer, you are not supposed to make a meal out of them. - 11/1/13

    I figured for 70 cal. I would try these. Wow!!
    These were so good. Even using low fat cheese
    and just a pinch of bacon these things were awesome.

    Will definitely make this but will use small, thinly sliced roma tomatos as grape tomatos are too sweet for my taste. - 10/21/13
