This was good! i had slightly less then a pound of turkey and it made 3 burgers. I reduced the amount of ginger as i can tell using fresh ginger that amount may have been over powering for me. I've made lots of turkey burgers and from my experience i have found that you dont even need to bother with the egg (because then it becomes too wet) and then you NEED the breadcrumbs, But it defeats the purpose (to me) when i want to be eating healthier. Also Turkey is very dry so the breadcrumbs suck up more moisture then need be. Just form firmly into patties does the trick , and they hold together just fine. In addition to all the spices i added in 1 chopped red jalapeno (thai chilli pepper would be awesome too). Read More

I would recommend using 3/4 of a tablespoon of ginger as i could only taste the ginger. I doubled the breadcrumbs and it was still was quite soft. If i make the recipe again i will proberly consider adding a hiosin sauce in the recipe to make it a little sweeter (but i guess that'll make it a chinese-style turkey burger). Read More

I used a few variations, dried ingredients and used oatmeal , a little ground chia and sesame oil since I made this with leftover oven turkey. My kids from ages 5-18 ate it all gone! Read More

Made these as written with two exceptions. Used ground chicken and grilled on our indoor grill for 8 minutes per side. So delicious! Will definitely be making again. Read More

This was a delicious treat. I loved how it had a kick in it from the soy sauce. Instead of fresh ginger, I've used ground ginger. I've used one Napa cabbage leaf to shred for my toppings. I would love to make it again. Read More
