From EatingWell:  Summer 2003, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

Hoisin sauce gives these burgers a juicy texture, while ginger and garlic provide a burst of flavor, and water chestnuts deliver an appealing crunch. Serve them over tender greens or on toasted whole-wheat buns.

Ingredients

Turkey Burgers

Sesame Mayonnaise

Preparation

  1. To prepare burgers: Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Place bread in a food processor and pulse into fine crumbs. Transfer to a large bowl. Add ground turkey, water chestnuts, hoisin, scallions, ginger, garlic and salt; mix well. (The mixture will be moist.) With dampened hands, form the mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties (see Tips).
  3. Oil the grill rack (see Tips). Brush the patties with 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil. Grill until browned and no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. (An instant-read thermometer inserted in the center should register 165°F.)
  4. To prepare sesame mayonnaise: Combine mayonnaise, yogurt, soy sauce and oil in a small bowl; whisk until blended. Serve the burgers with the mayonnaise.
