Thai Turkey Burgers 

Been back on track and currently on a 90 day cut, so naturally I’m trying to come up with delicious ways to jazz up lean meats to keep my mind off pepperoni pizza and pumpkin spice lattes! 

Here is a recipe for Thai flavor turkey burgers, I served these in lettuce cups with a bit of low fat spicy mayo.  

To make 4 burgers:

1 pound 99% lean ground turkey 

1/2 small red onion, minced (about 1/4 C) 

2 tsp garlic minces

1 Tbl lemon grass paste (available at wegmans, in the produce section) 

1 tsp ginger paste (also at wegmans in produce) 

2 Tbl thai yellow curry paste (Hmart) 

1/2 C chopped cilantro 
Just mix all ingredients into the meat and split into 4 patties. 

I baked mine at 350° F for around 30 minutes until cooked through, but you could also grill these or pan sear them.
