Matt loves the Turkey Burger at the Edina Grill & it inspired him to try making his own version at home. Don't be scared by the peanut butter in it, with the other seasonings it adds a decidedly Asian flavor & a wonderful texture. I really like Matt's Sea Salt & Thyme Burger but this burger has moved to the top of the of the burger list.
We topped this burger with a garlic mayo which Matt made by mixing 2 - 3 tablespoons of mayonnaise with one minced garlic clove & a drop or two of Sriracha for color.
Peanut Turkey Burger
1 medium carrot, julienned
1 scallion, chopped
1/8 t ground ginger
1 t kosher salt
10 oz ground turkey
1 1/2 T chunky peanut butter
1/4 t sesame oil
1/2 t sriracha chili sauce
Place all the ingredients together in a bowl. Work with hands to mix but to do overwork.
Cook on a griddle (turkey burgers tend not to hold together well on a grill) until done, about 6 to 7 minutes per side.
Serve with lettuce leaves, more julienned carrots & garlic mayo.
Makes 2 burgers
In case you are wondering the fries on the side are baked sweet potato fries. Super easy & good for you.
