To say that I was WOWED (insert heart eyes emoji) by these burgers at first bite is an understatement! I ate… oh, probably 3 of these babies the first time that my beautiful friend made them for us, and I’ve been dreaming of them since.
A last minute house guest was the perfect excuse to ask for the recipe from my friend and GO TO TOWN again on these delicious burgers. Our house guest asked, “What’s in these things? They are incredible!”
After a short pause, I replied, “Well, everything but the kitchen sink!”
But that description is base compared to the absolutely delightful flavor you are going to experience upon making these up! Working our way through the week, folks, I hope your Wednesday is a good middle marker.
1 lb. ground turkey
3 cloves minced garlic
1 two-inch piece of peeled ginger, minced
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped fine
1 red thai chili pepper (sometimes I use 2 for more heat)
1/4 c. bread crumbs
1 tbsp. soy sauce and fish sauce (enough to combine the mixture, I just eyeball it, a few shakes)
Peel. Chop. Mix. Grill. It’s as simple as that!
I grilled my burgers on medium heat for about 7 minutes. My friend recommends that you make the patties ahead and let the flavors marinate all together. Serve with whole wheat buns.
- Peel and chop.
3. Make into patties.
4. Grill and EAT!
