Banh Mi Turkey Burgers! Seriously the best turkey burger you will ever eat. So many different and delicious flavors and textures happening!

This delicious turkey burger is inspired by the classic banh mi! It has sweet chili mayo, pickled carrots, a tender turkey patty, and some other fresh toppings to form the most delicious bite!



For the patties

  • 2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 68 buns, toasted (we used brioche buns from Aldi, and they were super yummy with this!)

For the toppings:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
  • 3 carrots, sliced into matchsticks
  • 1 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 hot house cucumber, peeled into ribbons
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Cilantro, chopped
  • Fresh jalapeno, sliced


For the patties

  1. Combine the meat, salt, and seasonings until everything is well mixed together. Form into patties. Depending on how big you want them, you’ll end up with about 6-8 patties (we had 7!)
  2. Grill until cooked through

For the sweet chili mayo

  1. Combine the mayo and sweet chili sauce + a little bit of salt. Stir to combine and set aside until ready.

For the pickled carrots

  1. Bring the rice vinegar, sugar, and pepper flakes to a boil in a small pot. Boil for about 30 seconds to 1 minute, just until the sugar is dissolved.
  2. Add your sliced carrots to a mason jar or a tupperware, cover with the mixture you’ve been boiling, and pickle for at least 1 hour

To assemble

  1. Start with a toasted bun. Spread a big dollop of sweet chili mayo on each bun (this is my favorite part, so I’m pretty liberal with it!)
  2. From there, pile everything else on! Your patty, a leaf of romaine lettuce, some cucumber ribbons, pickled carrots, cilantro, and jalapeno. Top with your other bun and devour!
