Teriyaki Turkey Burgers

This is such a great recipe especially now that grilling season is in full force. Don't be afraid to branch out from crowd and put aside you previous notions about turkey burgers. No more, "I only eat beef burgers", "turkey burgers are for girls"or thinking "turkey burgers have no taste". This recipe will change your mind. Fire up the grill and give this a try!

What You Need:
1 & 1/4 pounds of lean ground turkey 
1 tbsp  ginger seasoning
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp seaseme oil
1/4 cup chopped scallions
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
2 tbsp fresh cilantro
1 large egg white
8 medium scallions (with root ends trimmed)
hamburger buns

How to make it:
1. Fire up your grill or preheat a grill pan to medium high heat
2. Combine the turkey, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, teriyaki sauce, chopped scallions, cilantro and egg white in a large bowl.
3. Patty out 4 burgers
4. Place your burgers on the grill or grill pan. You should only flip your burgers once, cooking each side 5 to 7 minutes. 
5. A few minutes before your burgers are done place the 8 scallions on the grill and cook them about 2 minute (they will be bright green and a little charred)
6. Serve each burger on a toasted bun topped with 2 scallions and Enjoy!

I paired this dish with grilled zucchini instead of fries and some delicious fresh coleslaw.

Happy Cooking!
