(image and recipe from Cooking Channel)


1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
1/3 cup fresh parsley, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 shallots, minced
1 egg yolk
Sea salt
Freshly cracked pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
12 mini burger buns or small soft dinner rolls, warmed in the oven
12 small lettuce leaves
12 slices tomato
1 cup thinly sliced red onions


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.

Serve the burgers on the mini buns with the lettuce, tomato and onions. Garnish with mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup to your liking.
