Mini Turkey Sliders

These tiny turkey sliders are the ideal size for toddler hands and can be prepared in advance and stored in the freezer until needed. Serve them to little ones for lunch or dinner, or pass around trays of these bite-sized burgers as an easy appetizer at your next summer soiree.

Is it just me or do kids seem to love mini-sized anything when it comes to food? Regular burgers? No way. But make it a mini slider, and they’re sure to eat them up. And since it’s barbecue season, there’s no better time to introduce adorable, itty-bitty turkey burger sliders to your little ones than now.

Mom tip: Lay out all the toppings on the table and let the kids dress their own burgers. When they’re involved, it makes it more fun and they feel like they’re in control of some major decisions when it comes to their dinner.

Here’s how to serve up a nutritious snack or meal for your kids this summer.

Serves 4

You’ll Need

  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1/3 cup fresh ground Parmesan
  • ½ small onion, grated
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 2 Tbsps olive oil
  • 10 slider rolls
  • optional: lettuce, pickle, tomato, cheese, ketchup, mustard

Prep and Cook

  • Combine turkey, Parmesan, onion, salt, and pepper in a bowl and mix well until combined. Shape into 10 two-inch patties and transfer to a plate. Chill for 30 minutes.
  • Brush the mini turkey burgers with the olive oil and place on a grill over medium-high heat. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until the centre of the meat is no longer pink. Remove and transfer to a platter, allowing the meat to rest for five minutes.
  • Serve on rolls and let the kids go nuts with their desired toppings.
