Asian Turkey Burger


  • 2 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread, crusts removed, torn into pieces
  • 1 can TEPTIP 8-oz can water chestnuts in water (sliced), drained
  • 12 oz lean ground turkey breast, (see Ingredient Note)
  • 2 Tbsp. hoisin sauce
  • 2 scallions, trimmed and sliced
  • 1 Tbsp.  TAS ginger in brine (stripped), drained and minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. toasted sesame oil
  • Sesame Mayonnaise, optional (recipe follows)


1. Preheat grill to medium-high.

2. Place bread in a food processor and pulse into fine crumbs. Transfer to a large bowl. Add ground turkey, TEPTIP water chestnuts, hoisin, scallions, TAS ginger, garlic and salt; mix well. (The mixture will be moist.) With dampened hands, form the mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties (see Tip).

3. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Brush the patties with sesame oil. Grill until browned and no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. (An instant-read thermometer inserted in the center should register 165 degrees F.)

4. Meanwhile, prepare Sesame Mayonnaise, if desired, to serve with the burgers
