The perfect fusion of Thai and American food, a healthy Thai Turkey Slider jam-packed with flavors like ginger, green onion, garlic, cilantro and Thai chili pepper if you are up for it, and topped with an easy Thai Sriracha homemade mayo!
- 2 green onions, roughly chopped
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1/4 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
- 1 small shallot, roughly chopped
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 1 tsp ginger paste
- 1 tbsp fish sauce
- 1/2 tbsp oyster sauce
- 1/2 tsp sugar
- 1 egg yolk
Thai Sriracha Mayo
- 1/4 cup mayo
- 2–3 tbsp Thai Sriracha, to taste
- Add the green onions, garlic, cilantro, and shallot to a food processor, and pulse until finely chopped.
- Add them to a large mixing bowl, and also add the ground turkey, ginger paste, fish sauce, oyster sauce, sugar and egg yolk.
- Incorporate until just mixed.
- Make into patties the size of a slider bun, or make regular sized turkey burgers if that’s your preference.
- If you grill them, turkey sliders cook fast, so make sure you really watch or you might end up with dry, burnt ones like we did once! It should only take a few minutes per side to grill.
- If you are using a cast iron, add a few teaspoons of cooking oil of choice, over medium-high heat. Make sure the pan is hot before putting the patties in to help give them the grilled look.
- Add around six or so burgers to the pan. I had to do two batches to not overcrowd the pan.
- Cover the pan, and cook for 3-4 minutes until browned, and flip, and cook until it’s cooked through and no longer pink.
- To make the Thai Sriracha Mayo, mix the mayo and Thai Sriracha sauce to taste. Thai Sriracha isn’t as spicy as normal Sriracha, it’s more sweet and spicy, so mixed with the mayo there is a slight heat, but it’s at a kid-friendly level, at least for my kids. Feel free to use regular Sriracha if you want it more spicy.
- Serve with your favorite burger toppings! We like bacon, tomatoes, power greens and avocado!
I recommend using ground turkey that isn’t super lean to help your burger stay moist. And if you want to sub ground beef instead, go for it!
