Mini Burger Series – Turkey Burger with Spicy Mayonnaise Sauce

Burger, Poultry Recipes

I think food variety is key to exciting meals. So I try to expand our home-cooking menus. Thankfully, Jeff and I are pretty open to enjoying various types of food. It definitely makes cooking and eating to be a lot more fun.

One day the mood for burgers happened to strike me. Jeff and I both love a good burger. This time though, instead of going to our usual burger joint that night, I decided to make the burger. We just had a beef dish the day before so I thought of other meat alternatives to make a delicious burger. Turkey immediately came to mind followed by a meaty fish, like halibut. Couldn’t choose which one to make, I decided to do two mini burgers: turkey and halibut. I added roasted sweet peppers with artichoke hearts as the side salad.

Ingredients for Turkey Burger:

  • 1 ½ pounds of lean ground turkey
  • Ginger powder
  • Chili powder
  • A teaspoon of minced garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Green onions (chopped the white area and discard the green part)

We will also need:

  • 7 burger buns or dinner rolls
  • 7 slices of cheddar cheese

Ingredients for the sauce:

  • 2 tablespoon of mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon of dijon mustard
  • A sprinkle of dill leaves
  • 1 teaspoon of Sriracha hot sauce


  • In a big bowl, mix all of the ingredients for the burger and make five to seven patties from the mixture (depending on how big you want the patties to be)
  • In a smaller bowl, mix the ingredients for the sauce. Cover with a plastic wrap and keep in the refrigerator until the burgers are ready to serve.
  • Grill the patties for seven minutes on each side.
  • Place the cheese on top of the patties when they’re almost done.
  • Warm up the buns or rolls on the grill for a minute or two.
  • Spread the sauce on the top and the bottom of the buns, drizzle a little on the patties, and stack the burgers.
  • Serve with roasted sweet peppers and artichoke hearts salad.
