Hawaiian Turkey Burgers

i just realized on blogger making my photos x-large makes them blurry! so now they will be large from now on!
these burgers a freaking amazing! my husband said it was the best burger hes ever had he didn't even know they were turkey even though that's all i make. (he ate 5!) i found this recipe over at our best bites and they have this amazing teriyaki sauce i made myself instead of buying it. i love how thick it was! 

1 lb. lean ground turkey
1/2 c. dry bread crumbs
1/2 c. red or green bell pepper, minced (about 1/2 medium bell pepper)
1/2 c. thinly sliced green onion
1 tsp. finely chopped fresh ginger root
1 small can pineapple slices; reserve juice
1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
Thick Teriyaki sauce (like Kikkoman or this recipe)
4 hamburger buns 
Gently combine turkey, bread crumbs, bell pepper, green onion, ginger, 1/4 c. reserved juice from pineapple, and salt. Form into 4 deliciously large patties. Chill until ready to cook.
you could put these under the broiler in your oven, a grill pan on your stove top, or just a frying pan. If desired, grill pineapple in last 5 minutes of cooking. Baste burgers with Teriyaki sauce during last two minutes of cooking. i served it up with cilantro lime jasmine rice .


  1. we had these at a dinner party once when my husband was stationed at hickam and they were super delicious! i'll have to try making them myself!


  3. Oh wow, these burgers look awesome! mmm now I want some pineapple!!

  4. These look great! We've been eating turkey on occasion now and this would be the perfect thing to make when we do eat it ;) Yummm!

  5. These sound amazing, I'm adding these to my menu plan next week.

  6. I love turkey burgers. After hitting the gym, a great protein rich lean meal. I love the pineapple too! fruit helps protein absorption! This is a great meal Candace!
