Grilled pineapple, ginger, and Asian five-spice lend an almost Hawaiian quality to these delicious burgers topped with gouda cheese. They use turkey as an alternative to ground beef.
- ½ cup dry bread crumbs
- 1 egg white
- 1 tablespoon diced white onion
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
- ½ teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder
- ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
- ⅓ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 4 slices Gouda cheese
- 4 onion rolls, halved
- ½ cup fresh spinach leaves
- 4 pineapple rings
- 1 Whisk together the bread crumbs, egg white, onion, soy sauce, minced ginger, five-spice powder, ground ginger, and pepper in a large bowl. Mix in turkey until just combined. Shape turkey mixture into four patties.
- 2 Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
- 3 Cook on the preheated grill until the patties are no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side for well done. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Place a slice of gouda cheese on each patty; continue grilling until cheese has melted, about 1 minute. While the turkey patties are cooking, place the pineapple rings on the grill until softened, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
- 4 Assemble the burgers by placing a turkey patty on half of an onion roll, then top with the grilled pineapple. Divide the spinach leaves evenly among the burgers, then top with the other half of the onion roll.
