Mini Bacon Turkey Burger Sliders

Over the past few years I have become to addicted to anything that is bit-sized or tasting size. Whether it's cheese or appetizers at a restaurant, I am all about sample size food. I had bought some more Hawaiian rolls a while ago and decided to make some burgers. I try to not eat a whole lot red meat so I did ground turkey instead. Here's my recipe:
1 lbs Ground turkey
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 Egg
1 tbsp Black pepper
1 tbsp Garlic powder
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp of Basil Pesto sauce
5 strips of bacon (microwavable)
Slices of sharp cheddar cheese from block, sliced thin
2 tbsp butter, slightly softened
2 roma tomatoes, sliced thin
Romaine lettuce leaves, cleaned (optional)

To begin with, mix the first six ingredients together in a bowl. 

Once the meat was mix well, form small patties about the size of the roll. Side note: I ended up making 21 of these patties from the meat the I had. 

Then I put four patties on my George Foreman. I got this small one on Groupon and it has been one of the best purchases I've made. It has the grilling part and if you haven't noticed yet: it has a bun toaster on top.

I put butter on each of the halves of the buns I was going to use. 

Two buns (a top and bottom part) at a time, I toasted them. I left them on there for about 6 to 7 minutes like I did with the patties I made.

This is what it end result of the buns after grilling.

While the patties cooked and the buns toaster, I mix the mayonnaise and basil pesto together to make basil pesto mayonnaise.  I put that in the refrigerator after mixing.

I then took, 5 slices of back and microwaved them for 1:30 or until crisp.  I then broke the pieces into half.
Once the burgers and the buns were done, I took the mayonnaise and put 1 tsp on the top and bottom bun of each roll. I place the patty, cheese, and tomato on the bottom bun then placed the top on with a toothpick through the middle (to hold it in place)
Here are the ones that I made without lettuce. It only took me about 45 minutes all of it (along with sweet potato fries). 

Does anyone else love taste size foods or is it just me???
