These Asian turkey burgers with slaw are out of this world…I’m talking like the stuff dreams are made of good.

These Asian flavored turkey burgers are moist, juicy and bursting with flavor.

As if they’re not delicious enough, they’re topped with homemade Asian coleslaw, wrapped in egg roll wrappers, and fried until crunchy and perfectly golden.

Ummm….holy turkey Alyssa, where do you come up with this stuff?!? (I know, it’s like I’m reading your mind)

Let’s breakdown the easy recipe for these Asian Style Turkey Burgers:

First is the sriacha mayo slaw-it’s quick, easy and oh so good.

It’s made with shredded purple & green cabbage, carrots and scallions and then dressed with:

  • Soy Sauce
  • Ginger
  • Rice Wine Vinegar
  • Lime Juice
  • Honey
  • Garlic
  • Mayo
  • Sriracha

It gives these Asian turkey burgers the perfect sweet & tangy crunchy element.

Next, the Asian turkey burgers are made with:

  • Ground Turkey
  • Soy Sauce
  • Garlic
  • Ginger
  • Oyster Sauce
  • Sesame Oil

The ingredients get mixed together in a big bowl, shaped into patties and baked in the oven…Super easy so far, right???

Once they’re cooked through, they’re topped with that delicious homemade slaw, wrapped in egg roll wrappers, sealed, and fried until golden and crispy.

I promise you’ve never had a burger like this before.

For a healthier version, you could also bake the burgers instead of frying. 

I’ll be honest though, I’ve done them both ways and while baking them still gave them a crispy texture, I much preferred the frying.  (Isn’t everything always better fried?)

…And because burgers need their trusty fry sidekick, try these easy baked carrot fries on the side.

Be sure to use eggroll wrappers not wonton wrappers.  The egg roll wrappers are bigger, making it easier to wrap your burgers in.  They can usually be found in the refrigerated section (usually where the produce is) at your grocery store.

I used two egg roll wrappers per burger.  Since they don’t fully wrap around the whole burger, I placed one wrapper on the bottom, then my burger and slaw in the middle, and then topped it with another wrapper. 

Then, I gently folded up the corners, sealing with a little bit of water.  While you don’t have to be a master at the folding part (god knows I wasn’t) as long as the edges are mostly sealed, they’ll be fine once they’re fried.

These juicy Asian turkey burgers are deliciously easy and a change from your usually hamburger.  They’re packed with flavor and require minimum effort!
