Freezer Foods: Greek Spiced Turkey Sliders

Some people do weekly food prep….

I do FREEZE prep!

Let me explain….

As much as I’d like to be totally on top of things and use the weekends to prep, chop, and cook a bunch of food for the week….I just don’t have the time or patience to do it! Plus I like being able to be spontaneous with my meals and snacks, so prepping food in advance in anticipation of what I might want would just be waaay to hard.

But that doesn’t mean I don’t do my fair share of my own sort of ‘prep’. This involves an every couple of weeks cooking spree to replenish some foods that I like to freeze and keep on hand for additions to quick meals and snacks all month long!

I always end up freezing the baked goods I make because I never am able to eat them up in enough time before they go bad! Also, as I mentioned above, I like variety! So I like having options and not having to eat the same recipe all week long.

Here are some of the staples I always make….

Baked beans (then I bag them in individual portions to add to lunch salads!)

I always feature these in my WIAWs but I’ve never shared the actual recipe! Well, today’s the day!

Not only are these burgers simple to make, amazingly flavorful, and freeze well….but they are MINI! And let’s face it, mini food is better! Sliders for the win.

I’m even throwing in my easy recipe for tzatziki yogurt sauce that tastes great with these greek inspired patties!

Enjoy…

My favorite way to eat these is cut up with spinach on a toasted pita and topped with lots of tzatziki!!
The slider size of these burgers makes them a great addition to any meal or snack! Plus you can easily have two at once for a heftier dose of lean, clean protein at a bigger meal! And with grilling weather coming, you can swap the oven for the grill and cook these outside!

    I’m soooo horrible about food prep! Since I’ve been so busy lately, I’ve been trying to incorporate it into my routine more often and it definitely helps when I do. I really should start freezing things- that’s a great idea!

    The flavors in these burgers sounds amazing! I might try a falafel-type variation with chickpeas!

    THE BOMB! These remind me of the burgers I made on my blog a few months back! However, we used shallots, not red onions – but I guess they’re pretty much the same thing. SO FLIPPING GOOD :) You make me wanna make more burgers NOW!

    Everything looks so delicious, especially the turkey sliders. You have inspired me to do some serious meal prep this weekend, in preparation for our normal crazy weekday schedule.

    Thanks for sharing!
