Turkey Burgers with Hoyo Sauce


Turkey Burger

Yield 6 servings


1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped

1/2 cup dry-roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped

3 Tablespoons Hoyo Basbaas sauce

1 Tablespoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon Kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper

1 Tablespoon jalapeno, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, finely minced

2 pounds ground turkey

6 slices Ellsworth Monterey Jack cheese

6 tomato slices

Superior Citrus Greens

6 Breadsmith burger buns, lightly grilled 


Preheat grill to medium-high. Be sure it is scraped clean.

In a large bowl, combine cilantro, peanuts, Hoyo Basbaas sauce, soy sauce, salt, pepper, jalapeño, and garlic; mix well. Add the ground turkey to the mixture and combine ingredients together with a fork (try not to over-work the meat to avoid making it tough). Divide the mixture into six equal portions, shaping each into a ½-inch-thick patty. Place patties on a grill lightly coated with oil (use long tongs and a paper towel dipped in oil wiped across the grill grates); grill 5-7 minutes on each side or until a digital thermometer registers 160°. Remove from grill and assemble with toppings.

Serve with slices of Monterey Jack and tomato and top with Superior Green Citrus Mix green. Spread some Hoyo Basbaas Sour Cream Sauce on the lightly grilled buns.
