Consensus: REALLY GOOD!
This recipe was adapted from weightwatchers.com.
- 1 1/4 pound lean ground turkey(93/7)
- 1 T fresh ginger root, finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp olive or sesame oil
- 1/4 c teriyaki sauce
- 1/4 c scallions, chopped
- 2 T cilantro, finely chopped
- 1 large egg white
- 4 slices pineapple
- dab of light mayo(optional)
Mix all ingredients just until combined. Make 4 patties that about 3/4 in thick. You can either grill or broil for 5-7 minutes on each side. I actually cooked them in a non-stick skillet on med-high heat. I also threw pineapple slices in the pan to cook to top the burgers(about 2 minutes per side or until starting to brown).
I put the burgers on sandwich thin buns and spread about a tsp of light mayo mixed with 2-3 drops of teriyaki sauce on one side of each bun. These burgers are so moist and delicious. I couldn’t wait to eat leftovers for lunch the next day.
I realize that you can’t really see the burger very well in the picture but some homemade oven-baked sweet potato fries and an ear of Iowa sweet corn were perfect sides.
