Super Juicy Turkey Sliders

Prep time:  15 mins

Cook time:  15 mins

Total time:  30 mins

Serves: 4


For Patties:

1 egg

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp ground coriander

¼ tsp cayenne

1 tsp salt

Pepper to taste

3 green onions

2 Tbsp chopped cilantro or parsley

1 cup, about 1 coarsely grated zucchini

1 lb ground turkey

2-4 Tbsp neutral flavoured oil

For Yogurt Sumac Sauce:

½ cup plain yogurt

1 tsp orange zest

1 Tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice

1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

½ clove garlic, pureed

2 tsp ground sumac

Salt and pepper to taste

To Serve: Lettuce cups, avocado slices, chopped tomatoes, fried onions, and Yogurt Sumac Sauce.


Preheat oven to 425°F.

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, except ground turkey. Add in ground turkey and mix with hands until incorporated. Portion into mini patties about 2-3 inches in diameter and place on a lined baking sheet. A portioner or lightly greased measuring cup helps with getting them all the same size.

Preheat cast iron fry pan or ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil and, in batches if necessary, brown on both sides. Transfer to the preheated oven for 5 minutes or until internal temperature is 165 degrees.

To make yogurt sumac dip, mix all ingredients together in a bowl and adjust seasoning to taste. Serve in lettuce cups with chopped tomatoes, slices of avocado, Yogurt Sumac Sauce and fried shallots.
