Polynesian Turkey Burgers by Tish

**Submitted by Tish from the 30 Day Gourmet Freezer meal site!**
Servings: 6 (8 if you make the burgers smaller)

1 1/2 pounds of ground turkey (I use the 93% lean, not the 99% lean so they will stay more moist during cooking)
1 cup plain bread crumbs
1 T. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder (NOT garlic salt - it would be too salty with the soy sauce)
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1 cup of sweet and sour sauce (divided)
1 cup of crushed pineapple, DRAINED

Assembly: Combine turkey, bread crumbs, soy sauce, spices, and 1/4 cup of the sweet and sour sauce. Shape into 6-8 burgers.
For sauce: combine 3/4 cup of sweet and sour sauce with the 1 cup of drained, crushed pineapple.

Freezing: 1. Freezer raw burgers in Ziploc freezer bag to cook later OR 2. Cook burgers on grill, stovetop, or broiler and cool completely before placing into freezer bags.
Sauce: pour into a quart size freezer bag and label and freeze with burgers

Serving: Thaw burgers and sauce and cook OR warm the already cooked burgers. Warm the sauce on the stovetop or the microwave. Serve with or without sauce on top.

The kids can always add a piece of cheese and ketchup and skip the sauce if they want.

****I recommend grilling the burgers SLOWLY over LOW heat to help maintain their moisture****


  1. These were very good. We did get buns rather than just have the sauce over the top. Grilling them worked well. Thanks for a good meal.

  2. We grilled these on Father's Day. Rob really liked his. Emma didn't love the texture--more like a meatloaf feel. I was impressed by how much meat there was and that they didn't cook away like some burgers. thanks, Tish!
