The Special Sauce on these grilled turkey burgers is a mayonnaise-based sauce flavored with Dijon mustard, orange juice, soy sauce, honey, and ginger. Serve these great summertime burgers with table grapes for a refreshing and light meal.
Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Divide turkey mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 3/4-inch-thick patty. Place patties on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 6 minutes on each side or until done.
Spread 2 tablespoons Special Sauce over top half of each bun. Place lettuce leaves on bottom halves of buns; top each with 1 patty and top half of bun. Cut each burger in half.
Delicious even with the substitutions I had to use (regular onions finely chopped and ginger paste). I used 3/4 lb. ground turkey and adjusted the rest of ingredients accordingly. Then I made only two rather thick patties. Instead of on the grill, I cooked in a grill pan on the stove top. They took longer than 8-10 minutes though. All in all burgers were juicy and the sauce was delicious - definitely will make again!
Made delicious and juicy burgers. I added extra orange juice and a tsp of orange zest to the sauce to intensify the flavor. My kids and husband really enjoyed. We used the leftover sauce as a veggie dip (goes well with carrots and peppers).
This has been one of our favorites since the June 2006 issue came out. 7 years of delicious turkey burgers! And the kids love them too! Just be careful - the special sauce recipe tends to make a lot more of the sauce than you need for a single recipe of the burgers. I always halve the sauce recipe and still have some left over.
Yummy! I was worried they wouldn't stay together since ever other burger recipe I've seen uses an egg/egg white for binding, but they worked great! Maybe them in the skillet just to be safe and I cooked them a little too long, but they come with their own so it's forgiving. Since I still have left-over sauce, I'm wondering if I could add some to the burgers before cooking...guess I'll just have to make them again to see! Oh, and bonus points for having "Special Sauce." My step-Dad's a big fan of Step-Brothers and very much appreciated the reference and the flavor.
Husband was a bit concerned that the burgers would not hold together on the grill (he compared the consistency to pudding), but they came out fine and were delicious! Special sauce is tasty but not necessary -- the burgers have wonderful flavor on their own.
One of my favorite recipes to make, especially for anyone who doesn't think turkey can taste good (my father-in-law included). Usually a go-to recipe for me when casual company comes over. Very juicy, flavorful burger. I'll try chili sauce next time, that would be good. Husband and in-laws all loved it! Also only 8 points on WWPP.
