Turkey Caprese Sliders
The ingredients for the classic Italian salad (tomatoes, mozzarella and basil) team up with ground turkey for fresh summer sliders.

- 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
- 1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 4 ounce fresh mozzarella, sliced
- 1 (1-pound) ciabatta loaf
- Tomato slices (optional)
- Avocado slices (optional)
- Combine turkey, egg, basil, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper. Mix gently. Make 12 balls. Flatten and place a slice of cheese on top of 6 burgers. Top with remaining burgers and pinch edges to seal cheese inside.
