I found this in some random cookbook. One of the best turkey burgers ever. Full of flavor. Make an extra for lunch the next day, reheats beautifully.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Mix togeter, gently. the turkey, sesame seeds, soy, scallions, cilantro, garlic, sesame oil, 1 teaspoon of salt, and bread crumbs.
  2. Form into patties.
  3. I usually mix all this together and make patties in the morning and leave in the refrigerator till I'm ready for them.
  4. Sometimes that is the next day.
  5. Brush with a little oil before grilling if desired.
  6. Grill on the George Foreman, in a grill pan.
  7. If you're using the outside grill increase the breadcrumbs a bit to insure they don't fall apart.

THE best turkey burger we've ever had. The first time I made them, I had the butcher grind all white meat, they were good, but not great. The second time I bought a mixture of white and dark meats. Yum. The third time, I added 2 tablespoons of minced fresh ginger. Perfect!! I made all the burgers, cooked them all the way through, and placed them in individual zip bags in the freezer. We just take a bag (or two) out and place in the micro on high for four-five minutes ( depending on the size of the burger) and we have dinner. Thank you for a great recipe.

Excellent! I did'nt have scallions so I used a shallot. Can't wait to make these again! Mosit and full of flavor! I also used a little light mayo mixed with Sriracha chili, for a little kick. Next time I will try it with wasabi mayo. Thanks for sharing!

This is a very good burger.
Made it this afternoon for hubby and friend using all ingredients except sesame oil and scallions-used canola and vidalia in place of and they turned out really good anyway!
I 'fried' them on grill cook pan on top of stove and served on thin sanwhich rounds w/ cheese and a little olive-mayo on top....they were well received! Not dry at all and tasty.
