Prep: 15 Minutes
Cook: 10 Minutes
Serves: 12
Ingredients

1 ½ pounds Ground turkey

1 Egg yolk

½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon onion powder

Salt and pepper

12 KING'S HAWAIIAN® Original Hawaiian Sweet Dinner Rolls

1 cup KING'S HAWAIIAN® Big Island Lava Sauce

6 Pineapple rings, quartered

1 small Red onion, sliced

3 slices Provolone cheese, quartered

3 slices Yellow cheddar cheese, quartered

6 small Persian cucumbers, cut into sticks

Preparation
Step 1
In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, egg yolk, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Divide the mixture into 12 equal portions and use your hands to shape into 3 1/2” patties.
Step 2
Heat the olive oil on a griddle over medium heat, cook patties until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees F, about 3 minutes per side. Place a quarter slice of cheddar cheese on top of each patty and allow to melt.
Step 3
Slice KING’S HAWAIIAN dinner rolls in half; separate top half from bottom half.
Step 4
Place a turkey patty on the bottom half of each roll. Pour KING’S HAWAIIAN Big Island Lava Sauce over the patty. Top with 2 pineapple pieces and a slice of red onion.
Step 5
Slice an inch-long X shape into the middle of the top half of each roll to place "hair" into. Place on top of slider.
Step 6
Gently press cucumber sticks into the X shape of the top roll to form the pineapple crown.
Step 7
For eyes: Use a quarter slice of cheddar cheese to create 2 eye shapes for each slider. Use a quarter slice of provolone to create 2 slightly smaller eye shapes for each slider. Use a toothpick to attach the cheddar and provolone to create each eye.
Step 8
For mouth: Use a quarter slice of cheddar cheese to create an angry mouth. Press onto the side of the turkey patty.
