Cook time: 10 min
Serves: 4
A taste of Vietnam in an American favorite. Serve with grilled corn and peppers for a marvelous meal.

Ingredients

  2 spray(s) cooking spray
  1 cup(s) packaged coleslaw mix (shredded cabbage and carrots)
  1/4 cup(s) English cucumber(s), julienned or sliced super thin
  1 Tbsp fresh lime juice, or to taste
  1/4 tsp kosher salt
  1 pound(s) uncooked 93% lean ground turkey
  2 Tbsp cilantro, fresh, finely chopped
  1 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  1 Tbsp ginger root, grated or finely chopped
  2 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s), finely chopped
  4 tsp reduced-calorie mayonnaise
  1 tsp chili sauce, sweet variety
  4 muffin(s) light English muffin, toasted

Instructions

  • Coat a large griddle, outdoor grill rack or stovetop grill pan with cooking spray; preheat to medium-high.
  • In a medium bowl, combine slaw mix, cucumber, lime juice and salt; toss to coat and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine turkey, cilantro, soy sauce, ginger and garlic; divide mixture into four balls and then gently press each one into a 4-inch patty.
  • In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise and chili sauce.
  • Grill or broil patties until internal temperature of burgers reaches 165°F, about 4 to 5 minutes per side.
  • Spread half of each English muffin with 1 1/4 teaspoon chili-mayonnaise; top with a burger, a scant 1/3 cup slaw mixture and a muffin top. Yields 1 burger per serving.

Notes

  • The slaw that tops these burgers is quite basic. For added flavor, add some seasoned rice wine vinegar, minced cilantro, hot chili oil or hot sauce (could affect PointsPlus value).
