  • Step 1

    Combine the turkey burger ingredients in a bowl and mix well using your hands. Form the mixture into 4 burger patties, about 3 inches wide and 1 inch thick. Place the patties on a plate in the fridge while you make the slaw and sauce.
  • Step 2

    Add the slaw ingredients to a bowl and mix well.
  • Step 3

    Add the peanut sauce ingredients to a bowl and whisk until combined. If the sauce is too thick, add a teaspoon of water at a time as you whisk until it reaches your desired consistency.
  • Step 4

    Heat your grill over medium high heat. Make sure the grates are well greased/oiled so the turkey doesn’t stick. Cook the patties for 4-5 minutes on each side, until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  • Step 5

    Serve the burgers on a toasted gluten free bun with some of the peanut sauce and the slaw on top.
