A classic burger slider using ground turkey instead of ground beef.  The Turkey Burger Slider with Mini Brioche Buns, is the perfect finger food for your guests.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1/3 cup fresh parsley, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Sea Salt
  • Fresh cracked pepper 
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 12 mini brioche buns
  • 12 small lettuce leaves
  • 12 tomato slices
  • 1 cup thinly sliced red onions or yellow onions
  • Mayonnaise
  • Mustard
  • Ketchup

    DIRECTIONS 

    Mix together the turkey, parsley, cumin, paprika, garlic, shallots and egg yolk in a large bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and mix. Divide the turkey mixture into 12 equal portions and, using your hands, shape into 12 small burgers about 3 1/2 inches wide. Heat the oil in a pan and cook the burgers until a thermometer inserted into the center registers 165 degrees F, about 3 minutes per side. Caramelize yellow onions on stovetop for 5 minutes. Serve the burgers on the mini brioche buns with the lettuce, tomato and red onions or caramelized onions. Garnish with mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup to your liking.

     

    Have a Happy and Safe Memorial Day Weekend!
