Turkey Spinach Sliders

This recipe from Bon Appetit is a great weeknight dinner option – the sliders cook up quickly and the leftovers are a perfect grab-and-go protein. They’re also a great way to get kids to eat some spinach!*

*This theory has not been tested. Ever. Kids probably hate turkey burgers almost as much as they hate spinach.

Turkey Spinach Sliders, from Bon Appetit

Ingredients

  • 1/2 bunch flat-leaf spinach, thick stems removed, leaves chopped (about 4 cups)
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Optional: Mayonnaise, sliced red onion, and pickle slices (for serving)

Instructions

  1. Combine spinach, scallions, garlic, turkey, and cumin in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper. Using a fork, mix gently just to combine. Form turkey mixture into twelve 1/2-inch-thick patties.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in 2 batches, cook patties until golden brown and cooked through (resist the temptation to press down on patties with your spatula while cooking), about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Serve turkey-spinach patties with mayonnaise, onion, and pickles, with sweet potato fries, or over a salad.
