Asian Burgers with Spicy Lime Mayo

Asian Burgers with Spicy Lime Mayo

Once I came across this recipe, I was hooked. I couldn’t wait to pick up the ingredients and make them at home but there was one problem: this recipe was for turkey burgers. Now I’ve always wanted to try turkey burgers since it’s such a healthier alternative but when it came down to it, I couldn’t give up the beef! It’s like Joey Tribbiani says: “If you’re gonna do something wrong, do it right!” So even if the turkey burgers had a gazillion less calories (okay maybe 100 less calories), I wanted a legit burger with real beef.

Was it worth it? Yes. The burgers were perfectly grilled to medium rare and had so much flavor in every bite. The Swiss cheese went perfectly with the Asian flavorings and the spicy lime mayo tipped the burger to absolute perfection. I’ll be sure to make this again and again, with ground beef of course.
