Spicy Turkey Burger Sliders

It's June and that means Summer is almost here.
Burgers are a staple for us during the summer months, so I like to mix it up with the types of burgers I make.
One of Kevin's co-workers (Hi Brendan!) gets the credit for this combonation.
He told Kevin about these sliders a few months ago and I have tweaked them a bit (and added bacon to them because....hello....bacon!)
I think you will love them!
Here is what you need:
1 pound Ground Turkey
Salt And Pepper
Diced onions

1/2 cup Whiskey (optional)
1 1/2 cups BBQ Sauce
2 Tablespoons of Worcestershire Sauce
 1/3 cup of diced bacon (I use Hormel Real Bacon Pieces)
1/4 cup  Jalapeno Slices from a jar (they also come in a tamed version if you don't want a lot of spicy-ness)
Hawaiian Sweet Rolls for the buns
**This makes 12 sliders, so if you need more, just double the recipe***

Put your Ground Turkey in a bowl and sprinkle with some salt & pepper:
 Add in 1/3 cup of bacon pieces. I use Hormel pre-cooked bacon pieces:
 Mix together (I use my hands)
 Form into 12 slider patties:
 Heat up a skillet & melt a dab of butter:
Brown the patties on 1 side:
 Flip & brown on the other side until they cook all the way through:
 Once they are cooked all the way through, remove them & set aside.
Using the same pan, add your diced onions:
Brown your onions.
 Then add the whiskey to the pan. Cook the onions for a few minutes more in the whiskey:
 Add the BBQ sauce & Worcestershire Sauce to the pan:
 Add the diced jalepenos:
 Stir it all together & then add the sliders back into the pan:
 Flip over the burgers & let them simmer in the sauce for about 5 minutes.
 Serve on sweet Hawaiian Rolls:
I serve the sliders with Sweet Potato Fries and Broccoli Slaw.
You could even grill the sliders on your barbeque and then just add them to the sauce & let them simmer in the pan before you serve them.
This is meal is now a staple in our house. 
So good.
Enjoy & Happy Friday!
