Trust me when I say these Hawaiian Turkey Burgers will be your new go-to for burger night! The burgers themselves are only 5 ingredients and they're SO flavorful! They get topped with grilled pineapple, avocado, red onion, and a handful of greens! They're a serious flavor explosion in all of the best ways!
Begin by making the burgers. To a medium bowl, add the turkey, scallions, garlic, soy sauce, hoisin, salt, and pepper. Mix to combine (it's easiest to use your hands!). Divide the mixture into 4 equal parts and form into patties. I find that ground turkey can be super sticky, so if you wet your hands first before forming the patties, it really helps!
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and add the oil. Once hot, add your burgers and cook for 4-5 minutes per side, or until depply golden and caramelized on each side.
While the burgers are cooking, preheat a grill pan or outdoor grill to medium-high heat. If you're using a grill pan, spray lightly with nonstick spray. Grill your pineapple for 3-5 minutes per side (depending on your grill), or until grill marks appear.
To serve, place a handful of greens on the bottom bun, followed by the burger, a grilled pineapple slice, a slice of red onion, and slices of avocado on top. (Bonus points if you grill your burger bun!)
*Be sure to use 92 or 93% lean ground turkey, not the 99% lean ground turkey breast, because your burgers would be super dry!
*If you don't want to cook your burgers a skillet as the recipe is written, you can grill them on an outdoor grill or grill pan with your pineapple, I just find that turkey burgers stick more on a grill.
