Inspired by Cooking Light, my mom made Asian turkey burgers as part of her Saturday-night bbq extravaganza. (My family believes in lots of choices on the dinner table - my mom even serves "side dish" desserts along with the main dessert. Admit it, Mom. It's true.) Jeremy was raving over them, so I decided to try my hand at it this week, putting together my own recipe:
Asian Turkey Burgers
1 lb ground turkey (7% fat)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 inch fresh ginger root, grated
2 T. tamari dark soy sauce
2 scallions, finely chopped
1 1/2 t. toasted sesame oil
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. freshly ground black pepper
vegetable or canola oil
Mix together the first 8 ingredients. Divide mixture into 4 patties. Drizzle patties on both sides with vegetable oil. Grill up to your liking and enjoy.
We enjoyed these with one of our favorites, Asian slaw.
