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)
Preheat grill to medium-high.
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).
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.)
Meanwhile, prepare Sesame Mayonnaise, if desired, to serve with the burgers.
