Thai Turkey Burgers with Broccoli Slaw

This recipe was fantastic!!  We've been switching over to doing more ground turkey in things like tacos, burrito pie, etc but Mark was skeptical of using turkey in a burger.  Well, the thing is that the turkey just takes on the flavor or whatever you put into it.  And this recipe has enough going on to make it an A+ burger.  And the slaw is a MUST.  Make these this week!

1/2 cup of bread crumbs
1 egg
1 lb of ground turkey or chicken
1 carrot, shredded
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 t ginger, grated
1 t chili paste (I didn't have so I used chili sauce from TJ's)
2 T cilantro, finely chopped
2 scallions, finely diced
juice of 1 lime
1 t of lime zest
1 t red curry powder (I only had yellow curry powder)
Salt and pepper

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat for 15 minutes.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix to combine. Form ground turkey mixture into patties ( I got about 5 decent sized patties and one small one out of the lot).

Grill (flipping once for about 8 to 12 minutes, checking to make sure they are properly done before serving. Serve with broccoli slaw as a side or on top with toasted buns.

Broccoli slaw
1 bag broccoli slaw fixins
1/4 cup mayo
juice of 1 lime
bunch of cilantro
1 tbsp chili paste
1 teas of sesame oil
salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest 20 minutes so that the flavors mingle before serving.
