Teriyaki Turkey Burgers

1 1/4 lb. lean ground turkey
1 TB ginger root, fresh, finely chopped
1 TB minced garlic
1 tsp sesame oil
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
1/4 cup scallions, chopped
1 large egg white
2 TB cilantro, fresh, finely chopped
2 sprays cooking spray
4 reduced calorie hamburger rolls

Preheat a grill (or grill pan) to medium-high.

In a large bowl, combine turkey, ginger, garlic, oil, teriyaki sauce, scallions, cilantro and egg white; mix until just combined. Make for burgers, about 3/4-inch thick each.

Offheat, coat both sides of burgers with cooking spray.

Grill burgers, flipping once, until fully cooked, about 5-7 minutes per side. Lightly toast rolls on the grill.

Serves 4

Notes: The burger mixture will be extremely wet. I found it a bit difficult to form patties, but all the moisture is needed as lean meats can get very dry when cooked. Also, when the recipe says to coat both sides of the burgers with cooking spray...again this is difficult because of the burgers being so wet. I just used EVOO in the pan and it worked well.
