Turkey Potsticker Burgers

Sometimes, when I’m tired of trying to come up with ideas for my recipe blog, I peruse Pinterest for inspiration.  I try not to go there very often because, let’s face it – it’s food porn.  I swear if I could eat anything and everything, I’d spend my life making only Pinterest goodies.

So in my recent search for “pinspiration”, I found these yummy little guys.  I LOVED them!  They really and truly taste exactly like a Potsticker, just without the little potsticker wrap.  Try them!


1 package 99% lean ground turkey breast
¼ cup liquid egg whites
2T low sodium soy sauce
1 medium shallot, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1tsp minced ginger
1 ½ cups coleslaw mix, chopped

Slaw Topping:
3T low sodium soy sauce
3T rice vinegar
1T water
½ tsp sesame oil
¼ tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 clove garlic, minced
½ tsp minced ginger
1 green onion top (greens only)
4 cups coleslaw mix


Slaw Prep:  Mix soy sauce, vinegar, water, sesame oil, crushed red pepper, garlic, ginger and green onion in a medium bowl.  Add the slaw and toss.  Cover and refrigerate for approximately 15 minutes to marinate.  Toss again before topping burgers.

Burger Prep:  Mix all of the burger ingredients together and then form 4 patties.  Place the patties on aluminum foil or parchment paper, sprayed with nonstick spray.  Spray the burger tops with nonstick spray, as well.  Grill the burgers for about 4 minutes on each side.  (Please note, the burgers may be delicate so be sure NOT to turn them before they have set on the first side.)

When the burgers have reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees, remove them from the grill.  Top with slaw mix and be sure to get some of that yummy juice from the slaw on there, too!



Serves 4 – One burger with slaw topping
