Two grilling recipes in a row? Yes, it’s true! You just can’t keep this girl from her grill. No really. When you have a husband who works a lot at night, you teach yourself to use the grill.
Today I’m grilling turkey! Did you know June is Turkey Lovers Month? How lucky is June? I mean, it gets National Donut Day (!!) and Turkey Lovers Month. What a lucky month.
Another fun fact: Minnesota is number one in turkey farming, with 450 turkey family farms! Check out the Minnesota Turkey site where you can meet Minnesota turkey farmers here.
Since I’m all about the grilling right now, I took my turkey to the grill with these Thai Peanut Turkey Burgers with Coconut Peanut Slaw. Now THAT is a mouthful.
While I love a good beef burger, I also love using turkey to keep things lighter. Just like my Chimichurri Turkey Burgers, these Thai Peanut Turkey Burgers did not disappoint!
I had to make these turkey burgers a couple of times to get the perfect consistency, as ground turkey is a “wetter” meat than ground beef. I found that adding breadcrumbs did the trick to keep them together and they were super flippable!
While I originally was just going to have the Coconut Peanut Sauce on top, at the last minute I decided to make a slaw to top it off as well. I’m so glad I did! Marc and I both loved the different textures between the turkey burgers, peanut sauce, and slaw.
Another reason I love this recipe is because it uses one batch of Coconut Peanut Sauce for 3 different purposes. I added a couple of tablespoons to the burger for some flavor, I tossed it with the coleslaw, and I put a dollop on top!
These were definitely a hit – I hope you love them!
