Ingredients
Sriracha Turkey Burger Patties:
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ½ cup panko bread crumbes
  • 3 tbsp Sriracha hot sauce
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp salt
Assembly and Toppings:
  • 4 burger buns
  • Sliced cucumbers
  • Pickled shredded carrots
  • Pickled shredded daikon
  • Fresh cilantro sprigs
  • Sriracha mayo
Instructions
  1. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill on medium-high heat. (If the weather isn't conducive to grilling, preheat a stovetop grill pan or indoor grill instead.)
  2. In a large bowl, use your hands to combine the ground turkey, green onions, egg, bread crumbs, Sriracha, sesame seeds, ginger, garlic and salt. Shape into 4 patties.
  3. Arrange the burgers on the preheated grill and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until cooked all the way through (a meat thermometer should register an internal temperature of 160F).
  4. To serve, place a patty in each bun, and finish with whatever toppings you like.
