Thai Peanut Turkey Burgers

by Melissa on July 15, 2009

The first time I saw this recipe, I was on the fence about whether we would like these turkey burgers. But after seeing them repeatedly pop up in my google reader with rave reviews, I decided to give them a try. I am really glad that I did, because these burgers are delicious. The peanut butter, sesame oil and chili garlic sauce blend nicely with the shredded carrots and chopped scallions creating a moist and flavorful burger. We eat turkey burgers fairly regularly, so I am happily adding these to our rotation.


Thai Peanut Turkey Burgers

  • 8oz lean ground turkey
  • 1 medium carrot, shredded
  • 1 large scallion, minced
  • 1/4 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp chili garlic sauce ( I use the sweet version)
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • freshly ground salt & pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger

Combine burger ingredients a mixing bowl and combine thoroughly. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Form the turkey mixture into two patties. Cook for about 7-10 minutes per side, until cooked through. Top with Chili Cilantro Mayo and serve on hamburger buns of your choice ( I used Arnold Sandwich Thins and topped with baby spinach).

Chili Cilantro Mayo

  • 2 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • handful of cilantro, finely minced (did not use this time, but will in the future)
  • 1-2 tsp chili garlic sauce

Combine ingredients and refrigerate until ready to serve.
