Heart Healthy Asian Turkey Hamburgers
Heart Healthy Asian Turkey Hamburgers recipe
whole wheat bread
crusts removed, torn into pieces
canned, sliced, rinsed and chopped
scallions, spring or green onions
trimmed and sliced
Preheat grill to medium-high.
Place bread in a food processor and pulse into fine crumbs.
Transfer to a large bowl. Add ground turkey, water chestnuts, hoisin, scallions, ginger, garlic and salt; mix well.
(The mixture will be moist.)
With dampened hands, form the mixture into four ½-inch-thick patties.
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°F.)
Meanwhile, prepare Sesame Mayonnaise, if desired, as well as your favourite burger toppings, to serve with the burgers.
