Thai Peanut Turkey Burgers

Oh my goodness!  I have just found a new favorite recipe for ground turkey!  I’m so glad I tried this recipe.  When this popped up in my Google Reader I had to try it soon.  This recipe came from Cara’s Cravings.  I strongly suggest you head over there and check out her yummy treats!  My local grocery store has had several sales on ground turkey.  I just can’t resist the buy one get one free sale, especially when it comes to meat!  Needless to say, there are a few pounds of ground turkey waiting in my freezer again! I loved the taste of the peanut butter and the chili garlic sauce.  The shredded carrots added a nice touch and flavor.

My husband and I enjoy Thai food so I knew this recipe would be right up our alley.  I made these burgers a few weekends ago when we had company for the weekend.  They enjoyed them too.  These burgers worked well in my fabulous grill pan.  As you can tell from the pictures I served them with sweet potato fries from Trader Joe’s.  I should have bought 2 packages, we loved them so much!

Enjoy!
