Bobby’s Thai Turkey Burgers with Red Curry Mayo

Ingredients

  • Red Curry Mayo
    • 1/3 cup fat-free mayonnaise (we used regular Hellmann’s Mayo)
    • 2 teaspoons Thai red curry paste
    • Finely grated peel of 1 lime
    • 1 tablespoon lime juice
    • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Burgers
    • 1 package (20 oz.) ground turkey breast
    • ½ cup finely chopped dry-roasted peanuts
    • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
    • 2 teaspoons Thai red curry paste
    • Finely grated peel of 1 lime
    • 1 tablespoon lime juice
    • ½ teaspoon salt (we used kosher salt)
    • ¼ teaspoon pepper (we used freshly ground black pepper)
    • 4 hamburger buns, split (we used whole-wheat buns)
    • 4 leaves lettuce (we used red leaf lettuce)

Directions

  1. Take a small bowl out and mix together all the red curry mayo ingredients in it. Put a lid on the bowl afterwards and leave it in the refrigerator until the burgers are ready to be served.
  2. Start heating up your gas or charcoal grill (we used a grill pan). In a large mixing bowl, add all the burger ingredients (excluding the buns and lettuce). Divide the mixture into 4 patties that are ½-inch thick.
  3. Once the grill is at a medium heat, brush oil over the grill rack and put the patties on the grill. Cover the grill and cook the patties for 9 to 12 minutes, (flipping halfway through) or until the patties reach 165 degrees.
  4. Place the lettuce on the buns, followed by the patties and spread the red curry mayo over the top of the patties*, followed by putting the bun on top.

*The sauce tasted so good that we spread a light amount on both the bottom and top bun but we actually think the burger would be even better with additional sauce so we’re going to double the sauce recipe next time we make this.

Mini Ham Sandwiches

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp. minced chives
  • 2 Tbsp. canola mayonnaise (we used regular mayonnaise)
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 8 (1-oz. each) Hawaiian rolls
  • Thinly sliced ham

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Combine the first 3 ingredients together in a small bowl to create your spread. Take a baking sheet out and line it with aluminum foil. Take each of the rolls and cut each one almost, but completely in half horizontally (make sure you don’t cut through to the other side of the roll). Place the rolls on the baking sheet, with the cut sides facing up. Stick the baking sheet in the oven for 5 minutes or however long it takes for them to look golden. (For ourselves, we also stuck our ham slices on the baking sheet to cook at the same time as the rolls.) Take the spread and apply it evenly on the cut sides. Place the ham on the rolls, put the roll tops on the ham and enjoy !
