Turkey Sliders with Baked Potato Wedges

Few things delight young cooks as much as kid-sized food. These zesty turkey sliders, served with baked potato wedges, are a perfect fit for little hands -- and little appetites. Give these burgers and "fries" a healthier, more kid-friendly spin by baking them in the oven (no spattering grease!). Just make sure a grown-up handles the pans.

Turkey Sliders with Baked Potato Wedges

Source: Everyday Food, September 2012


  • 2 large Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar (3 ounces)
  • 8 brioche slider or dinner rolls
  • Bibb lettuce, tomato, ketchup, and mustard, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss potatoes with oil and arrange in a single layer. Bake on top rack until tender, about 30 minutes, flipping halfway through. Season with salt.

  2. Meanwhile, form turkey into 8 small patties and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with chili powder and season with salt and pepper. Bake on bottom rack until cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Place cheese on burgers, return to oven, and bake until cheese is melted, 1 minute. Serve sliders on brioche with lettuce, tomato, ketchup, and mustard, alongside potatoes.

Cook's Notes

Small Jobs for Kitchen Helpers
All that mud-pie practice pays off; just remember to wash up after forming patties.
  • Washing and tearing lettuce passes the time while the burgers cook.
  • Young chefs can get creative with toppings. We've given suggestions, but the sky's the limit.
