Mini Turkey Burgers Recipe

Mini Turkey Burgers are the perfect food to serve for a kids summer birthday party or any cookout where kids will be present.  The kids chowed down on these little burgers when we made them so we plan on making these  a lot during the summer months.

To make the bitesize turkey burgers:


1 lb ground turkey

1 ½ tsp Dijon mustard

2 tbsp pineapple tidbits

¼ cup finely diced apple

1 tbsp grape jelly

1/8 tsp chili powder

Dash of salt

Dash of pepper

Dash of smoked paprika


Bread to make mini rolls


Cherry tomatoes


What to Do:

Combine all ingredients and shape into tiny patties, about 1 ½ to 2 inches in diameter. Cook little burgers over medium heat in a skillet, lightly browning on each side, about 3 minutes per side.  Test to make sure the center is completely cooked.  If baking in oven, approximate cooking time is 20 minutes.

Using a small round cookie cutter, or small glass or lid, cut out rounds from bread.  Use crusts to make the tops of your little rolls.  Add lettuce, slices of cherry tomato and rounds of cheese to turkey burgers, holding everything together with a toothpick.
