Baked Turkey & Spinach Sliders

Hi friends! Sorry for the brief hiatus! As you might remember, I started a new job at HelloFresh last week, so it’s been a busy, albeit very exciting, past couple of days. With week 1 under my belt and a better handle on my new schedule and responsibilities, it feels good to be getting back into a routine, especially getting back in the kitchen!

Between goodbye lunches and dinners with Benchmarc friends, ice cream at JP Licks in Boston, and more celebratory drinks and ice cream at Ample Hills Creamery in Brooklyn (ahhh-mazing!!), it’s been an indulgent past two weeks. After finally getting around to organizing my recipe box, I came across a recipe from Bon Appetit that I ripped out a while ago for Turkey & Spinach Sliders. I knew these would be a versatile bring-to-work lunch and a welcome detox after my recent celebrations.

To make these even healthier, I baked them in the oven instead of frying in oil, which also cuts down on active cooking time – win! After all the heavy eating and drinking, I’m looking forward to breaking out my trusty lunchbox again and chowing down on these as a healthy weekday lunch!
