Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
To toast the sesame seeds, place a small skillet over medium-low heat. Add sesame seeds to the dry pan, and toss and stir until toasted, about 2 minutes.
In a medium bowl, gently mix together the turkey, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, water chestnuts, green onions, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, breadcrumbs and the egg. Form into small patties, about 2-3 tbsp of the turkey mixture each.
Add 1 tsp canola oil to a skillet and heat over medium. Once hot, add a few sliders and brown on each side. Do this in batches so you don’t crowd the pan. You will likely need to add 1 tsp of oil to the pan for each batch. The point of this step is just to brown the sliders to create flavour, not to cook them through.
Place on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 mins or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.
