Recipe Rave: Curry Turkey Burgers

My friend Emily passed along 
this recipe and  after making 
them twice now, I think it's safe to say we approve!

  • 1 1/3 pounds ground turkey breast, the average weight of 1 package
  • 2 scallions, thinly sliced
  • A handful cilantro, chopped very fine, about 2 tablespoons, optional
  • 1 inch piece fresh ginger, grated or minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • Coarse salt
  • 2 tablespoons mild curry paste or a handful of curry powder (Preferred brand: Patak's Mild Curry Paste)
  • Drizzle extra-virgin olive oil
  • 5 crusty rolls, split  


Combine first 8 ingredients and form into 5 patties.
Brush or drizzle patties with extra-virgin olive oil. 
Grill patties 6 minutes on each side on indoor electric grill or pan fry for same amount of time in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat.
Pile patties on split crusty rolls with lettuce, tomato, and chutney spread liberally on roll tops as a condiment. 
Serve curry turkey burgers with Thai Slaw and root vegetable chips.

  1. So I actually tried this tonight, because I haven't found any curry recipes that Jason likes so far... and he LOVED this one!

    As a matter of fact, he's eating one of the leftover patties right now like it's a cookie!! Thanks for sharing : )
