Whoever came up with the idea for sliders is a genius. Small burgers work as the perfect kids-size portion or fun appetizers for adults. Like any other burger, make sure you have a variety of toppings for everyone to customize their burgers to their liking. Serve with these Baked Potato Wedges or your favorite fries.

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
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.
