Hawaiian Turkey Burgers
These turkey burgers are much lighter than regular burgers made with ground beef and the added sweetness of teriyaki sauce makes them kid-friendly too."These were a hit at our house! I added chunks of goat cheese to the patties. My kids also loved them with avocado , tomato and asiago dressing." - Rodgersamanda

Hawaiian Turkey Burgers Preparation
PREP TIME: 15-20 min COOK TIME: 12 min READY IN: 32 min
Prepare charcoal grill and preheat to 165 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, combine ground turkey, bread crumbs, green onion, red bell peppers, ginger root, 1/4 cup reserved pineapple juice and salt; mix gently but thoroughly.
Form the meat mixture into six to eight 1/2-inch thick patties.
Grill patties over medium coals 10-12 minutes or until meat is no longer pink and internal temperature is 165 degrees F. Using a heat proof barbeque turner, turn burgers over once durring cooking. Baste the burgers with teriyaki sauce using a basting brush during the last 2 minutes of grilling.
Grill pineapple slices 5 minutes, basting with teriyaki sauce. Serve burgers on grilled buns, if desired; top with pineapple slices.
VARIATIONS: I use red bell peppers in place of green because they are a bit sweeter, Italian bread crumbs vs regular for added spice and Honey Teriyaki Marinade vs. regular because it''s thicker.
