Another great sounding burger from Favorite Brand Name Recipes website.

- 1 1⁄3 cups French's French fried onions, divided
- 1 egg
- 1⁄2 cup water chestnut, finely chopped
- 1⁄4 cup dry breadcrumbs
- 3 tablespoons stir-fry sauce, Asian, can use teriyaki baste & glaze sauce
- 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper sauce, Frank's RedHot Original
- 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated or 1⁄2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 4 sandwich buns
- shredded lettuce, to taste
- In a large bowl combine the ground turkey, one cup french fried onions, egg, water chestnuts, bread crumbs, stir-fry sauce, Franks RedHot sauce and the ginger. Shape meat mixture into four patties.
- Broil patties six inches away from the heat source or grill over medium coals. Cook for 10 minutes or until burgers are no longer pink in the middle, turning only once.
- Serve on buns and top with the remaining onions and lettuce.
We thought these burgers were just terrific! Always looking for a way to pump up the healther-but-often-bland turkey burger and this recipe definitely fit the bill Left out the water chestnuts, otherwise made as directed. Couldn't quite bring myself to serve them with just lettuce so spread the bun with some spicy mustard and we really enjoyed these - thanks for sharing the recipe!
These were interesting, but not ouststanding imho. My package of ground turkey was 1.25lbs, so I got 5 burgers. I used the exact ingred amts listed for 1lb though. I used 1/4 cup Eggbeaters for the egg. I misread the recipe and didn't even notice the Frank's Red Hot sauce until I was about to prepare the burgers. So I subbed Tabasco sauce (not sure how closely Tabasco resembles Frank's). I used a homemade teriyaki sauce (Teriyaki Chicken), which seemed to work well. These were sooo moist that they fell apart. I liked the crunchiness and texture of the French-Fried Onions and water chestnuts and the lettuce was a nice complement to the flavors. All the flavors were definitely there, although the Tabasco was in the background. I used ground ginger, instead of fresh. I cooked these on a griddle at 350 degrees F 5 mins on one side, 7 mins or so on the other. Bf thought these were okay, but he also had 2 burgers, hehe. Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game. Thanks for sharing!
Tastey burgers, I think the next time I would omit the waterchestnuts as all they really ad is a little crunch - I think I would choose to use red bell pepper diced to accomplish the same crunch - I used homemade bread crumbs and found the texture to be great - thanks for the post!!! will be made again
