Thai Turkey Burger

This past week I went to Taste of Thai in Temple again.  I’ve been really hungry for Asian food, and I’ve been on kind of a burger thing, so this is what happens – Thai Turkey Burger.  This is a really good burger, and ta-dah, they more than passed the “Don” burger test!

I almost didn’t add a picture, because really, if you’ve seen one burger, you’ve seen a burger!

Thai Turkey Burger

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 3 burgers


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1-2 TBSP grated onion
  • 1 TBSP grated fresh ginger
  • 1 TBSP quick cooking oats
  • 1 TBSP coconut milk (freeze the rest if you're not going to use it soon)
  • 2 tsp fish sauce
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes or sriracha hot sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • Pepper


  1. Mix all ingredients, and form patties. I usually make 3 patties out of one pound.
  2. Heat oil in skillet. Fry burgers until completely cooked.
  3. Serve with lettuce, tomato, and onion. I'm not a mayo fan, but it's really the condiment of choice for this burger (with a little sriracha and maybe fish sauce in it).
