Teriyaki Turkey Burgers

I made these for the second time last night, and they keep getting better and better! They turn out really flavorful, and are super easy. I omit the cilantro and scallions in the mix, but add about 1 cup chopped white onion. Delish! Let me know if you try it out and what you think. Happy eating!

These sesame-teriyaki burgers are super flavorful — even more so when topped with grilled scallions.


1 1/4 pound(s) lean ground turkey   
1 Tbsp ginger root, fresh, finely chopped   
1 Tbsp minced garlic   
1 tsp sesame oil   
1/4 cup(s) teriyaki sauce   
1/4 cup(s) scallion(s), chopped   
2 Tbsp cilantro, fresh, finely chopped   
1 large egg white(s)   
2 spray(s) cooking spray   
8 medium scallion(s), root ends trimmed   
4 item(s) reduced-calorie hamburger roll(s)   


  • Preheat a grill (or grill pan) to medium-high.
  • In a large bowl, combine turkey, ginger, garlic, oil, teriyaki sauce, scallions, cilantro and egg white; mix until just combined. Make four burgers, about 3/4-inch-thick each.
  • Offheat, coat both sides of burgers with cooking spray.
  • Grill burgers, flipping once, until fully cooked, about 5 to 7 minutes per side. A few minutes before burgers are done, place whole scallions on center of grill and cook, turning once, until bright green and charred, about 2 minutes.
  • Remove burgers and scallions to a plate; lightly toast rolls on grill. Serve each burger on a roll topped with 2 scallions. Yields 1 burger per serving.


  1. Can you put the recipe for the sweet potato fries up too please? haha. Put the burgers were REALLY freaking good! Good job!

  2. Mmmmm, these sound yummy and fairly easy. I am saving this so I can try it one night for dinner.
