I can’t believe I’ve been writing this blog for 6 months and haven’t yet posted the recipe for our much-loved turkey burger!!  This turkey burger has been hugely popular whenever we make it, and although I cannot vouch for it myself (being a vegetarian), I have heard enough people rave about it to know that this recipe is a keeper.  The ingredients list might seem strange but just trust me on this one–orange juice and soy sauce go together better than you could’ve ever imagined.  Ryan and I make this together–I prepare the mixing bowl with all of the ingredients that go into the turkey burger, then he mixes in the meat and grills the burgers to perfection while I make myself a veggie burger.  It’s nice teamwork.  🙂

Soy Ginger Turkey Burger

16 oz. ground mixed turkey
3 tablespoons no-pulp orange juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tsp minced fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 scallions, finely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste


Thoroughly mix all ingredients except turkey in a large bowl.  Mix in the turkey.  Form the meat into four even-sized patties, and grill over medium-high heat until the middle of the burgers reach at least 165F.
