Ginger-Five Spice Turkey Burgers with Mango, Onion and Feta Topping and Fiery Cilantro Mustard

Caribbean flavors inspired these lower fat, but delicious alternative burgers. Because they are made with turkey breast, be very careful not to overcook as that will result in a rubbery burger.


2 1/2 lbs ground Turkey Breast
2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger
2 tablespoons five-spice powder
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 ripe mangos, peeled, seeded and cut into 2 inch long thin strips 1 red onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard
1 jalapeno pepper, seeds removed and finely chopped
1 green onion finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup coarsely chopped cilantro, stems removed
1 tablespoon freshly grated lime zest
Oil to brush the grill
6 Kaiser rolls, split


In a large bowl combine the turkey breast, ginger, five spice powder, salt and black pepper. Form the meat into 6 equal sized patties, shaped to fit the rolls. Cover and set aside. Preheat a gas grill to medium-high heat. To make Mango, Onion, Feta topping, place the mango in a medium sized bowl. Separate the onions and add to the mango. Add the feta and gently toss to combine; set aside. To make the Fiery Cilantro Mustard Sauce, combine in a small bowl, the sour cream, Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard, jalapeno pepper, green onion, red pepper flakes, cilantro and the lime zest. Stir until well combined. Cover and chill in a cooler or a refrigerator until ready to use. Lightly brush the hot grill rack with oil. Place the rolls split side down on the grill to lightly toast, about 2 minutes. Remove to work surface. Lightly brush the hot grill rack again with oil. Place the turkey patties on the hot grill rack and cook in a closed grill for 4 minutes. Using a spatula flip patties and cook an additional 4 minutes or until meat on the inside is no longer pink and a meat thermometer reaches 160 degrees F. To assemble burgers, spread a generous amount of the Fiery Cilantro Mustard sauce on the bottom half of each toasted roll, top with a cooked patty. Top each with a portion of the mango, onion and feta, evenly dividing. Arrange the remaining bun halves on top and serve immediately.
