Thai Turkey Burger

Yum
This is my very first post with Foodie Extravaganza and I am excited to celebration National Hamburger Month (May) with this group of fabulous bloggers!  Each month we celebrate a food holiday!  Meat or veggie, different cheeses, topping, sauces, flavor profiles from other cultures - if it can be made into a burger patty, it's fair game!



I love Thai food and since moving here to St. Charles, I haven't found MY Thai food restaurant.  I know we will, but we just haven't yet.  This hamburger was developed to answer my growing desire for Thai!  I hope you will enjoy it like we did!

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes, including grill ti

Ingredients (4 burgers)
  • 1 red bell pepper, small dice
  • 1 cucumber, small dice
  • juice of one lime
  • 1 c light mayonnaise
  • 2 T sriracha sauce
  • 4 T cilantro, finely chopped, divided

  • 4 ciabatta buns, sliced and toasted
  • 1 lb ground turkey, 93% lean
  • 2 T soy sauce
  • 1 T fish sauce
  • 1/2 t black pepper
Instructions
For the relish: combine the red pepper, cucumber and lime and refrigerate.

For the mayo: combine mayo, sriracha, 1 T of the cilantro, lime juice, cumin, pepper and red pepper flakes. Refrigerate. Best made the night before, to give time for the flavors to marry.

For the burgers: Combine turkey, egg, soy sauce, fish sauce, pepper and remaining cilantro. Form into four patties. Grill about four minutes per side on a hot grill.

To assemble: Spread mayo on bottom bun. Place burger on top, and add a heaping T of relish. Top with toasted top bun. Enjoy!
