"Grilled pineapple, ginger, and Asian five-spice lend an almost Hawaiian quality to these delicious burgers topped with gouda cheese. They use turkey as an alternative to ground beef."

  1. Whisk together the bread crumbs, egg white, onion, soy sauce, minced ginger, five-spice powder, ground ginger, and pepper in a large bowl. Mix in turkey until just combined. Shape turkey mixture into four patties.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Cook on the preheated grill until the patties are no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side for well done. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Place a slice of gouda cheese on each patty; continue grilling until cheese has melted, about 1 minute. While the turkey patties are cooking, place the pineapple rings on the grill until softened, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  4. Assemble the burgers by placing a turkey patty on half of an onion roll, then top with the grilled pineapple. Divide the spinach leaves evenly among the burgers, then top with the other half of the onion roll.

I guess I am the only one who didn't like this recipe. The only redeeming thing is that they were not dry. I did not like the combination of the flavors. Sorry.

I had to laugh regarding the reviewer who " used ground beef instead of turkey and omitted the 5 spice" yet rated THIS recipe. Amazing....

One of our favorites. Shared with my mom and now it's one of their favorites too. Patties freeze well for later use.

We just had these burgers for dinner tonight and they were delicious! I followed the recipe but used colby jack cheese since I didn't have the gouda handy. I served them with mango chutney as a ...

This was good! Used ground beef instead of turkey and omitted the Chinese spice mix. But it turned out very good. Everyone loved it. Better with 2 pineapple rings vs. one!
