Blackened Turkey with Beer Battered Radish Sliders

Kim Biegacki


I finally found turkey legs no wings at Wally World. Yeah so here goes another challenge that had to include turkey meat & radishes.
I tried to first fry the radishes with nothing on them and that didn't work. THey came out all soggy, so then I thought of a recipe I have for fried pickles and changed it up a bit. They tasted way better with a beer batter on them. Some of you already know I love blackened foods so blackened turkey I knew would work. Add the horsey ranch sauce and a dollop of cranberry and your sliders are ready.
You can also make them vegan with just the radishes.

How to Make Blackened Turkey with Beer Battered Radish Sliders


  1. Get 3 bowls: 1 for plain flour, 1 for slurry sauce and one for flour mixture.
    Slurry Sauce is:beer, horseradish sauce and mustard
    flour mixture: 1/2 cup flour, corn meal, emerils essence, garlic powder, pepper.
    Dip sliced radishes in 1/2 plain flour, then the slurry sauce and then the flour mixture and fry in hot oil.
  2. slice up your radishes, I tried all three to see what they tasted like and I really liked the Daikon radish best. You could serve the others fried radishes with some of the Horsey ranch sauce on the side.
  3. Slice of the turkey meat from the bone in nice size pieces that would fit a slider bun. Dip them and coat on both sides with blackened seasoning. Fry them up in a pan with a little oil. It didn't take long at all as the meat was already cooked and just needed heated up. It is long enough to get that great blackened flavor on it.
  4. Get your dressing ready to put on top of sandwich and your whole cranberry sauce. Now, you can double layer with radish, meat or just single layer. I also did one for my vegan friends who would only want the radishes. It tasted great as those radishes can hold their own. LOL

    The slider in the middle of the picture above is the vegan one. Still nice and tasty plus filling too.
