Thai-inspired turkey burgers

I’ve discovered that chopping vegetables is unbelievably therapeutic. Throw in a not-so-shameless Justin Bieber jam session and you’ve got yourself a great end to Monday Funday. I threw these together in approximately six songs from the Biebs, so they are super easy. I was REALLY happy with how they turned out and will definitely be making again.

Thai-inspired turkey burgers

1.3 lbs of ground turkeyIMG_0784
1/3 cup green onion (finely chopped)
1/4 cup plain bread crumbs
1/4 cup cilantro (finely chopped)
1/4 cup carrots (finely chopped)
1 egg
2 tbs peanut sauce
salt & pepper

Combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and then mix with your hands. Dig right in, it’s fun. Shape into patties and then grill. I used the George Foreman (of course) and cooked them for about 6 minutes. Makes 5 burgers.
