EatingWell has published some pretty great turkey burger recipes in the past, and we just keep getting better and better at it. Each is special in its own way, and the latest creation from the EatingWell Test Kitchen, the Korean Turkey Burger, which you’ll find in the July/August issue of EatingWell Magazine, is no exception.

Find 6 more of our best turkey burger recipes here.

This is a turkey burger you can imagine getting from a Korean food truck—the lean (but not too lean) ground turkey is loaded with Korean chile paste and sesame oil, speckled with scallions and grilled. The heat! The sizzle! You top the burgers with a spicy sauce, cooling cucumbers and, the crowning Korean touch: kimchi. I love that layering of flavor—a little hot, a little cool, a little toothsome, a little crunchy. And you can have that hip food-truck experience right in your own backyard in just 30 minutes—and for less than $3 a burger.

Korean Turkey Burgers with Kimchi

Korean chile paste (also known as gochujang) blended into the ground turkey makes this turkey burger recipe incredibly moist and flavorful. Top these healthy turkey burgers with kimchi—a fermented mixture of cabbage and other vegetables—which can be found near other refrigerated Asian ingredients or near sauerkraut or pickles in well-stocked supermarkets or natural-foods stores.
