"Instead of ketchup, mix a little soy sauce and hoisin sauce together to spread on the burgers. For a little more kick, add more ground red pepper to the meat before you cook it. In keeping with the Asian theme, I usually serve a side salad topped with sesame dressing." -CL Reader
1 pound ground turkey
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
4 (2-ounce) hamburger buns
How to Make It
Combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl. Divide the turkey mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.
Prepare grill or broiler.
Place patties on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray; cook 5 minutes on each side or until done. Serve on buns.
These were really delicious! Got the thumbs up from my boys, who don't often agree on dinner. I did add a tsp minced garlic, & was a little liberal with the soy, hoisin & ginger, which resulted in a rather wet mix, but it held together well & stayed very moist when cooked. I served these without a bun over brown rice & a sauce made from hoisin, soy sauce & a bit of sweet chili sauce. A quick broccoli slaw with Newman's Own LF Sesame Ginger, packaged broccoli slaw, sliced yellow bell & slivered almonds rounded out the meal & gave a nice crunch.
an old favorite - great with a little teriaki or szechuan Thai sauce ( bottled ) and served over mango rice (can use canned mangoes, chopped and folded into cooked jasmine or basmati rice). Awesome recipe - burgers are very moist and tender - even reheated
Surprised that there were no ratings! I made this often in years past. original recipe name was OrientL Turkey Burgers in Cooking Light. Other than adding a little more ginger, I don't make any changes. Flavorful and moist.
