Asian Turkey Burgers

Hoisin sauce gives these burgers a juicy texture, while ginger and garlic provide a burst of flavor, and water chestnuts deliver an appealing crunch. Serve them over tender greens or on toasted whole-wheat buns.

Serves 4

Prep Time 35 min

Total Time 35 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread, crusts removed, torn into pieces
  • 12 ounces lean ground turkey breast, (see Ingredient Note)
  • 1 8-ounce ca sliced water chestnuts, rinsed and chopped
  • 2 tablespoon hoisin sauce, (see Ingredient Note)
  • 2 scallions, trimmed and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • Sesame Mayonnaise, optional (recipe follows)

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat grill to medium-high.

Step 2

Place bread in a food processor and pulse into fine crumbs. Transfer to a large bowl. Add ground turkey, water chestnuts, hoisin, scallions, ginger, garlic and salt; mix well. (The mixture will be moist.) With dampened hands, form the mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties (see Tip).

Step 3

Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Brush the patties with sesame oil. Grill until browned and no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. (An instant-read thermometer inserted in the center should register 165°F.)

Step 4

Meanwhile, prepare Sesame Mayonnaise, if desired, to serve with the burgers.
