About this recipe: Mmm, barbecued minced turkey burgers with aromatic ginger and Chinese five spice powder, topped with barbecued pineapple and melted Gouda cheese. The tastes of the Hawaiian islands will have you singing their 'aloha' praises and these scrumptious burgers will have you dancing the hula!
These burgers are amazing. I omitted the fresh ginger (since I didn't have any) and added a little extra ground ginger. They're so delicious. My husband and daughter are extremely picky and they asked me to make these again. - 19 Jul 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These were AWESOME!! The only change I made was to use a little extra 5-Spice Powder, and these were so amazingly fantastic that my husband immediately asked when we would be having them again. I'm not normally a fan of turkey burgers, and even I was wolfing mine down! I cooked these on my George Foreman grill for 6 minutes, which was perfect, and served them on home-made onion buns with goat's milk gouda. My only complaint was that I couldn't really taste the pineapple (probably due to using canned instead of fresh). Next time, I will likely omit it and replace is with a dollop of a tangy barbeque sauce we like. Really fantastic recipe!!! ******Okay, it's now "next time!" This time, I added a little more 5-spice powder, replaced the gouda with smoked mozzarella (it's what I had) and made sure to use fresh pineapple instead of canned, and oh WOW, what a difference! The hubby and I agreed immediately that the fresh pineapple takes this to a whole another level. - 08 Feb 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These were absolutely delicious!!! I omitted the ground ginger and must used more fresh and I forgot to put the fresh spinach leaves on it - but the end result was incredible served with garlic mayo. I should note that I used ground chicken instead of ground turkey - we will definitely make these again! EDIT - I made these again and used ground turkey - the end result was still very good. This is easily my favorite turkey burger recipe! - 09 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
