Asian Turkey Burgers with Sriracha Mayonnaise

These burgers had great flavor!  We followed the suggestion to only use the sriracha mayonnaise as a topping and were satisfied.

Makes 4 burgers
For burgers:
1 pound ground turkey breast
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce 
2 teaspoons soy sauce
2 green onions, thinly sliced (white and green parts)
2 teaspoons minced ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (I used one shake so it wouldn't be too spicy for the kiddos)
1/2 cup bread crumbs
freshly ground black pepper
canola oil

hamburger buns
For Sriracha Mayonnaise:
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Sriracha Hot Sauce 
Make the burgers. Combine ground turkey, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, green onions, ginger, garlic cayenne pepper, bread crumbs and a generous grind of black pepper in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly by hand. Form into 4 -6 patties. Heat a grilling pan over a medium-high flame (you can use a large skillet, but grilling pan is preferred—you can also grill the burgers). Brush the grilling pan lightly with canola oil and toast the cut side of the buns in batches; set aside.
Brush the pan more generously with oil and cook the burgers until just cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Use a quick read thermometer to make sure the burgers reach an internal temperature of 165ºF.
Meanwhile, make the Sriracha mayonnaise. Crazy easy. Put the mayonnaise and the Sriracha Hot Sauce in a small bowl and mix with a spoon. Done.
Assemble the burgers. Also easy. Bun, burger and a smear of Sriracha mayonnaise. You can add some lettuce or tomato slices, but I would discourage it. These are quite tasty on their own.


  1. You beat me to this recipe. I've got sriracha on my grocery list this week :) Tomorrow night I'm making salsa verde turkey burgers.

  2. I jumped on here to steal your picture but you ate them too fast to snap a picture as well :)
