Turkey Teriyaki Burgers

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

As I mentioned on Monday, we invited my Mom over for dinner. Since Tony was paid last week, I finally went "real" grocery shopping! Not just stopping into Aldi to buy some fresh produce to go with whatever was on hand. It felt amazing.

All that to say, I tried out/made up a recipe for Turkey Teriyaki Burgers. Now to be fair, the recipe was based on a Pork Teriyaki Burger recipe from a cook-off cookbook from 2006, but I made some adaptations.


2 lbs Ground Lean Turkey
16 oz Frozen Stir Fry Vegetables (we don't like mushrooms, so our blend included Broccoli Florets, Carrots, Green Beans, Onions, Sugar Snap Peas, Celery, Water Chestnuts and Red Peppers)
1 cup Breadcrumbs (we only had Italian and they worked like a charm)
2 cloves of Garlic
1 tsp of Ginger
Salt and Pepper
2 Green Onions chopped

6 oz Yoplait Original 99% Fat Free Orange Creme
1/4 cup Light Mayo
1 Tbsp Teriyaki Sauce (or Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce if you're a Mom and totally space that there's a difference)

Process frozen vegetables in food processor until they are small pieces, refer to picture. Combine chopped vegetables with turkey until mixed well. Add S&P, garlic, ginger and green onions until mixed well. Spray skillet with non-stick spray and on medium heat grill patties for 12 or so minutes, turning once.

In the meantime, combine yogurt, mayo and teriyaki sauce with a metal whisk in a small bowl until well blended.

Place cooked patty on whole wheat burger bun, add a dollop of sauce and garnish with thin slices of cucumber and green onion.

Yield: 8 burgers

We've been on a ground turkey kick instead of beef around here and these sound right up my alley. I'll be putting these on the menu for the weekend, thanks Leah!
