By Meridian - 26751

Ingredients
  • 2 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread, crusts removed, torn into pieces

  • 12 ounces lean ground turkey breast (see Ingredient Note)

  • 1 8-ounce can sliced water chestnuts, rinsed and chopped

  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce (see Ingredient Note)

  • 2 scallions, trimmed and sliced

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

  • Sesame Mayonnaise, optional (recipe follows)

Directions
  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.

  2. Place bread in a food processor and pulse into fine crumbs. Transfer to a large bowl. Add ground turkey, water chestnuts, hoisin, scallions, ginger, garlic and salt; mix well. (The mixture will be moist.) With dampened hands, form the mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties (see Tip).

  3. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Brush the patties with sesame oil. Grill until browned and no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. (An instant-read thermometer inserted in the center should register 165°F.)

  4. Meanwhile, prepare Sesame Mayonnaise, if desired, to serve with the burgers.

  5. Makes 4 servings.
