Recipe byTessa Arias
1(8-ounce) can sliced pineapple, juice reserved for burgers
1 1/4pounds93% lean ground turkey
1/2cupdry plain breadcrumbs
4green onions, thinly sliced
1/2large red bell pepper, finely chopped
1garlic clove, minced
1teaspoonfreshly grated ginger root
1/2teaspoonChinese five-spice powder
1tablespoonreduced-sodium soy sauce
1tablespoonreserved pineapple juice
Hawaiian bread rolls, sliced in half (store-bought or homemade)
Preheat grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat.
With your hands, combine turkey, breadcrumbs, green onion, bell pepper, garlic, ginger, salt, Chinese five-spice powder, soy sauce, and pineapple juice in a large bowl. Be careful not to over-mix.
Shape turkey mixture into slider patties the same size as your Hawaiian rolls (turkey burgers won’t shrink once cooked like beef burgers).
Cook patties on the preheated grill until they are no longer pink in the center, about 3 minutes per side depending on the size of your patties and heat of your grill. An instant-read thermometer should register 160 degrees F when inserted into the center of a patty. While the turkey patties are cooking, place the pineapple rings on the grill until softened, 2-3 minutes per side. Toast bread rolls on grill, if desired.
Place a turkey patty slider on one half of each roll. Top with grilled pineapple rings, cutting into smaller pieces to fit patty if necessary. Add any other desired toppings before placing other half of roll onto slider. Serve immediately.
