Recipe from Bites: Thai Turkey Burgers

by Jessie on September 20, 2012

My husband was so impressed by this burger that he said he would actually pick it over a beef burger! That is saying a lot. The slaw is a must – the cold crunchiness contrasting with the soft, warm patty is totally awesome!

(Adapted from Pass the Sushi)


1/2 cup of bread crumbs
1 egg
1 lb of ground turkey or chicken
1 carrot, shredded
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 t ginger, grated
1 t chili paste (I didn’t have so I used chili sauce from Trader Joe’s)
2 T cilantro, finely chopped
2 scallions, finely diced
juice of 1 lime
1 t of lime zest
1 t red curry powder (I only had yellow curry powder)
Salt and pepper

1 bag broccoli slaw
1/4 cup mayo
juice of 1 lime
bunch of cilantro
1 tbsp chili paste
1 teas of sesame oil
salt and pepper


Preheat your grill to medium-high heat for 15 minutes.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix to combine. Form ground turkey mixture into patties ( I got about 5 decent sized patties and one small one out of the lot).

Grill (flipping once for about 8 to 12 minutes, checking to make sure they are properly done before serving. Serve with broccoli slaw as a side or on top with toasted buns.

For slaw – Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest 20 minutes so that the flavors mingle before serving.
