Zingy Asian BBQ Turkey Burger

Who doesn't love a turkey burger? Not too many people that I talked to. I thought it was time to come up with a new spin on what everyone thinks a turkey burger can be. Hope that this does the trick! I love the flavors of hoisin and plum sauce. I felt that they would pair really well with turkey. This one has a bit of a kick to it also.

Ingredients 

Hoisin Vinaigrette
1 tablespoon Country Dijon
2 teaspoons Chili Sauce
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup Sutter Home Sauvignon Blanc
1/4 cup toasted sesame oil
1/4 cup olive oil
Slaw
½ head red cabbage, finely shredded
1 large head napa cabbage, finely shredded
1 10oz bag of shredded carrots
Zingy Asian BBQ Sauce
1/3 cup hoisin sauce
1/3 cup plum sauce
1 tablespoon  Country Dijon
1 tablespoon Chili Sauce
Patties
1 pound ground turkey
1 pound Italian bulk sausage (mild)
1 tablespoon Country Dijon
1 tablespoon Chili Sauce
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
2 tablespoons plum sauce
Vegetable oil, for brushing on the grill rack
6 sesame seed buns, split

Instructions 

To make vinaigrette, in a small bowl combine mustard, chili sauce and hoisin using a whisk, mix well. Whisk in vinegar and wine. Slowly incorporate oils into mixture by whisking constantly. Set aside. To make slaw, in an extra large bowl add both cabbages and carrots. Toss to mix. Pour vinaigrette over slaw in a spiral working from the outside of the bowl to the inside. Mix to coat, making sure slaw is well covered by vinaigrette. To prepare BBQ, in a small bowl combine hoisin, plum, mustard and chili sauce. Mix well and set aside. Preheat a gas grill to medium-high heat. To make patties, in a large bowl combine ground turkey, sausage, mustard, chili sauce, hoisin and plum. Mix well, but handle the meat as little as possible to avoid compacting it. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and form patties that are slightly larger than the size of the rolls. When the grill is ready, brush the rack with vegetable oil. Place patties on the grill cover and cook for 5 minutes. Turn patties once and brush top generously with BBQ sauce. Cover and allow second side to cook for 7 minutes for medium well. During the last couple of minutes of cooking place the buns on the outer edges of the grill, split side down to toast lightly. To assemble burgers, on each roll bottom put a generous amount of the slaw, a patty, another generous amount of slaw on top of the patty and finish with the top bun. Serve and enjoy! Makes 6 burgers
