  1. Spray clean, cold grill and utensils with grilling spray. Preheat grill to medium heat. Meanwhile, combine coleslaw mix, mayonnaise and stir fry sauce in small bowl; set aside.
  2. Place peanut butter in medium microwave-safe bowl; microwave on HIGH 20 seconds or until softened. Add turkey and soy sauce; mix just until blended. Divide into 4 equal portions; form into patties about 5/8-inch thick.
  3. Grill patties 10 minutes or until no longer pink in centers (165°F), turning once. Toast cut sides of buns on grill while patties are cooking. Place patties on bottom halves of buns. Top each patty with 1/4 cup slaw mixture. Close with tops of buns. Serve immediately.

It's so hard to find a recipe for turkey burgers that keeps them moist but this one does! We don't eat ground beef in our house and though we love our ground turkey it is def not always easy to cook with. This was a fun and new take on an old favorite! We all loved it and will def be making it again. Next time we're gonna experiment with adding different kinds of cheeses in the middle the way Rachel Ray recommends when grilling burgers. We can't wait!!

I made this recipe for my father and myself recently. My father has already said he wants them again, he loved them, he even recommend them to a co-worker. I almost didn't try these because I thought the ingredients were odd, but I am definitely pleased with them. I'd recommend that others at least give them a chance.

This was a creative take on turkey burgers, and it was certainly fun to make! I added a little less peanut butter than the recipe called for since others said the pb taste was too strong. This ended up making it not strong enough for my taste. I used crunchy pb, and I will be trying these again with the right amount of pb!

I thought this would be a hit with everyone but my family gave me mixed reviews. My tween and I liked it, but my teen did not enjoy it. My teen is not much of a peanut butter eater but I thought I could sneak it in with this recipe. I was wrong. You can really taste the peanut butter in the recipe even with all the other ingredients. As a result, if the person doesn't like peanut butter I would not recommend it.

This asian-style turkey burger was a fun way to mix up burger night. The crunch from the slaw and the nuttiness from the peanut butter in the ground meat itself added a number of different tastes and textures. I actually used crunchy peanut butter because that's what my son likes best and what I had on hand and they turned out nice that way. My wife actually wanted hers "protein style" so I wrapped her turkey burger in some butter lettuce and she loved it.

We excepted to love this burger but for us, the peanut butter just didn't work. It was just to strong, robbing the flavor from the turkey. We plan on making this again with a few changes. We will replace the peanut butter with a blend of cilantro, cumin and Hunts ketchup and I think we will have a winner. Maybe a bit of wasabi paste also. We did, however love, love, love the coleslaw mix and plan on using that on burgers throughout the spring and summer. So while I gave the overall rating a two, with my changes, I'm pretty sure it will soar to a five.
