This is a fun burger that I came up with. It's similar to my Thai Style Meatloaf, but in burger form and with turkey instead of beef. I get really tired of burgers by the end of summer, so this is an easy way to still enjoy the simplicity of a grilled burger meal but without feeling like you're eating the same thing all the time.
Asian Turkey Burgers
2 lb. lean ground turkey
2” piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated
4 green onions, thinly sliced
¼ cup soy sauce
¼ cup cilantro, finely chopped
6 hamburger buns
Thai Peanut Sauce
In a large bowl, combine turkey, ginger, green onions, soy sauce, and cilantro. Mix thoroughly. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and form into patties.
Cook patties on the grill or in the skillet.
Place on buns and slather with Thai Peanut Sauce or any other toppings of your choice.
Makes 6 servings.
The combination of these flavors is so amazing. So much more flavorful than a regular burger. And since they're made with turkey, they're better for you. My three year old gobbled hers up very quickly!
The Thai peanut sauce that I used on these was the one from Pampered Chef. But you can use any that you like.
I served these with Bobby Flay's Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Lime and Cilantro, but they didn't turn out well, so I won't be posting that recipe.
