Asian Turkey Burgers with Sriracha Mayo & Broccoli Slaw

Looking for something different? These slider-sized burgers are absolutely delicious and healthy to boot. What I love about these is that typically have most of the ingredients on hand so it’s a snap to throw them together.

Asian Turkey Burgers with Quick Slaw:

1 pkg prepared broccoli slaw (approx 4 cups)*
1 red bell pepper, julienne cut
2 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tbsp chopped cilantro
1.5 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce, divided
2 tbsp dark sesame oil, divided
1 pound ground turkey
2 tbsp hoisin sauce
1 scallion chopped
1 tsp fresh ground ginger
3 Tbsp mayonnaise (I like Avocado Oil Mayo)
1 Tbsp Sriracha sauce
whole wheat slider buns

Preheat broiler and spray rack of a broiler pan with nonstick spray.

First, make the slaw:

Combine pre-cut broccoli slaw, bell pepper, vinegar, cilantro, sugar, 1 tbsp of soy sauce, and 1 tbsp sesame oil in bowl, toss to coat.

Pop that bowl of slaw into the refrigerator so the dressing chills while you  make your burgers.

Next up, the Sriracha mayo:

Mix 3 Tbsp mayonnaise with 1 Tbsp Sriracha sauce.  (Add more for extra heat, less for flavor but less heat for your picky eaters.) Stir well to combine. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Now, for the turkey burgers:

Combine hoisin sauce, scallion, ginger, the remaining 1 tbsp soy sauce and 1 tbsp oil in a second bowl. Add ground turkey and combine. Yep, dig those fingers into the goop and mix it well with your hands, then shape into 8 1/2-inch thick patties about the circumference of a standard burger bun. (These burgers will shrink in width and increase in thickness!)

Transfer to broiler rack (or BBQ) and cook 4-5 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Because of the shrinkage from the turkey meat, these should result in the perfect size turkey burgers for slider buns.

The sesame oil makes them really aromatic. These turkey burgers smell good even before hitting the grill, and cooked up moist and juicy. Top them with some lettuce leaves and some Sriracha mayo, add a side of broccoli slaw and you’ve got dinner!
