When we went to St. Louis to view the 2017 eclipse, Kevin and Katy built a party around the event and served these luscious Asian Turkey Burgers. They reminded us of our Porkies (Barbecued Pork Patties) on this site, but are probably a bit healthier. We made them for a group of friends and they were a real hit.

  6. Transfer the burgers to a foil-lined cookie sheet in the oven to finish cooking for 5-7 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise and as much sriracha as you like. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  9. Assemble the burgers: Spread a little sriracha mayo onto each bun, then top with a turkey burger and some of the remaining cilantro.


Ground turkey does not hold it's shape well, so it is essential to pan-fry the burgers. They would probably not work well on the grill.

This is the traditional recipe for Thanksgiving turkey stuffing that Natalie has made since we’ve been cooking our own Turkey. Everyone raves about it, and for us it’s the definitive stuffing. It’s the recipe that she got from her mother. I might add, that as long as she’s been making it, (25 years+), I’ve been cooking the Thanksgiving bird outside on the Weber.
