What we love most about our turkey burgers is the patties' juicy flavor and texture. We use breadcrumbs in our mixture, as well as a variety of seasonings. We also add a splash of lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce, which give the patties their sweet and savory pop in flavor!


There is minimal chopping for this recipe. So, the prep work is really just combining ingredients. For smooth sailing, we recommend following these steps in order to maximize your time while making these easy turkey burger sliders.

STEP 1: Combine turkey patty ingredients

STEP 2: Heat Pan with olive oil

Your kids can make sure the pan is fully greased, using a basting brush to spread the olive oil. We love this Core basting brush because, although not made for kids, it's mini sized and perfect for little hands. [not necessary, but totally fun!]

STEP 3: Form and Cook turkey patties

Forming the patties can be a tad messy (which my kids love!), but once they are on the skillet, they cook pretty fast.

STEP 4: Assemble your turkey burger sliders

Form small patties (the size of the palm of your hand) and cook in the pan for 3-5 mins on each side. {Optional: Add cheese to the top of each patty during the last minute of cooking}. Place cooked patty inside of slider bun with desired toppings.
  • Serve turkey burger sliders with chips, potatoes, and/or a side salad.
  • Consider using a potato masher to blend the turkey patty mixture.

    These are soooo good! New go-to recipe for us for sure! I didn't have Worcestershire sauce so I substituted BBQ sauce, but it worked out really well. And these weren't dry at all!

    Thank you for sharing!
