this recipe was in AARP adapted from Sara Moulton's Weeknight Meals. We tried it and found it delicious!! In fact so much so, we had a 32lb hen turkey in the freezer, cut her up and ground the meat so we can use for this recipe and others. It's an easy recipe to make and very good for you. They smell so good while mixing up, you can hardly wait. Yuuuuummmmm gooood!!!

Delish! Have to say that when it comes to burgers, I usually prefer beef, but this recipe may have changed my mind. Loved all the veggies and Asian ingredients in the turkey patties and we loved the wasabi mayo as well. I cooked the burgers in coconut oil and added leaf lettuce, tomato and red onion to the burgers. Will definitely make them again and I'm placing this recipe in my Best of 2014 Cookbook as well. Made for Spring PAC, April, 2014.

I saw this in AARP a couple of weeks ago and have made it twice since. Scrumptious! And great for anyone on a gluten-free diet if you use Tamari instead of soy sauce and skip the buns, as we do. Thanks for posting; now I can throw out my messy AARP page!
