Thai Turkey Burgers

I am sure there is not one little thing about this burger that is authentic Thai. This burger is borrowing Thai flavors. My Thai experiences are very limited. I have had Spring Rolls, Pork Noodle Salad and Chicken Basil Cashew. All delicious. What I like about them is how each dish is full of fresh ingredients. This burger recipe is definitely a mash up. Dear sister had the idea. She mentioned that the Thai Style Peanut Dipping Sauce we use for spring rolls would be delicious on my Cilantro Lime Turkey Burgers. She is so right. This burger is AMAZING! I love the spicy peanut sauce with the cool and fresh toppings. It amazes me how the same burger blend can taste so different by just changing the toppings. Dear sister decided to have hers as a wrap with no bun. She really enjoyed it too. She said she would eat anything that had the peanut sauce on it. I am so glad sister made this suggestion. I am ready to make these burgers again this week. So Good!

Thai Turkey Burgers
Makes 4 servings


20 oz. ground turkey (93% lean)
Zest of 1 lime
1 Tbsp. light mayonnaise
1 Tbsp. cilantro, finely chopped
White pepper and red pepper flakes, to taste
Olive oil
Thai Style Peanut Dipping Sauce [Click here for the recipe]
4 Lettuce leaves
Cucumber, sliced
Carrot, shredded
1 Avocado, peeled and sliced
4 Hamburger Buns


Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Combine first 5 ingredients gently. Shape mixture into 4 patties, making the patties thinner in the middle then the edge. Coat hands in a little olive oil and rub on the outside of each patty.

Grill, covered with grill lid, 6 to 7 minutes. Flip burger and grill covered for another 6 minutes. Remove from grill cover with foil and let rest while preparing the toppings. Slice all the vegetables and dress with lime juice. To serve spread peanut sauce on both sides of the hamburger bun. Place burger on the bottom bun and top with cucumber, lettuce, carrots and sliced avocado. Finish with bun top.
