Asian Turkey Burger

Asian Turkey Burger

This burger makes me so happy.
Asian Turkey BurgerIt’s based on the steak I made for the Food Fight Write competition in Kissimmee, Florida earlier this month. The flavors are addictive. Ginger, sesame and soy. I used a combination of ground turkey and ground Italian sausage.

I did add pomegranate arils – which was totally not planned but I did it at the last minute and OMG it’s so good. Unexpected, but it works. Leave it to me to straight up trash a burger. In a good way, that is.

I topped them with microgreens that were given to me in Florida, but feel free to use sprouts or lettuce if you can’t find any.

Burgers shouldn’t always be the same – Here’s some of my favorites!
