Asian Turkey Burgers

Jennifer B

"This recipe has wonderful flavor and the water chestnuts give it great texture. My husband loves meat but he'd prefer this over regular hamburgers anyway! Make batches ahead of time and freeze the patties using waxed paper to separate."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Mix ground turkey, onion, water chestnuts, bell pepper, garlic, parsley, soy sauce, water, ginger, salt, and pepper in a bowl; shape into 4 patties.
  3. Cook the turkey burgers on the preheated grill until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Much too salty. Does not work as a burger. Might try as meatballs, with sow sodium soy sauce.

The fresh ginger makes a difference (I freeze mine in a bag and just cut off what I need). These are good. I left out the salt. I didn't have water chestnuts but did use the green pepper. I ...

I've never made turkey burgers before, and never really liked the ones I've had at restaurants, but these had a lot of flavor and did not fall apart. My husband loved them. Thanks for the recipe!

These were pretty good. I used lean ground turkey breast and did not feel they were dry (I probably over cooked them a bit, but that's because I'm always afraid they aren't cooked enough). I rat...
