Turkey Spinach Sliders

This recipe from Bon Appètit Magazine, July 2013 is such a great take on turkey burgers. We love it because it’s easy, has a lot of flavor and is easily made Paleo and/or Gluten-Free just by omitting the buns so you can accommodate everyone.  I don’t fry the patties in the skillet as the recipe suggests, I like to use my Cuisinart Griddler instead.  It cooks the patties quickly and they are less oily/greasy, plus I don’t have to stand there and watch them. -TJ

  • 1/2 bunch flat-leaf spinach, thick stems removed, leaves chopped (4 c.)
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 3/4 tsp. ground cumin
  • Kosher salt, fresh ground black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 12 slider buns or small dinner rolls, split, lightly toasted *Omit for Paleo or gluten-free
  • Mayonnaise, sliced red onion, and pickle slices (for serving)

Combine spinach, scallions, garlic, turkey and cumin in a medium bowl; season with salt & pepper.  Using a fork, mix gently just to combine.  Form turkey mixture into 12 (1/2″ thick) patties.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Working in 2 batches, cook patties until golden brown and cooked through, about 5 minutes per side.  Do no press down with spatula during cooking.  Transfer to a plate.

Serve turkey-spinach patties on buns with mayo, onions & pickles.
