Recipe Details

1 cup Mayo, divided

6 ¼ teaspoons Curry Powder, divided

1 ½ tablespoons plain yogurt

1 ½ tablespoons Ketchup

1 tablespoon Sriracha

1 clove garlic minced

3 pounds ground turkey

6 tablespoons Fresh Cilantro, chopped

1/4 cup green onions, minced

2 tablespoons Fresh Ginger, peeled & minced

2 teaspoons Ground Cumin

3/4 teaspoon Hot Chili Powder or Hungarian Hot Paprika

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon olive oil

Tomatoes, sliced


Red Onions, sliced (grilled optional)

4 KING'S HAWAIIAN Original Hawaiian Sweet Hamburger Buns

Step 1
Mix 3/4 Cup mayonnaise, 2 ¼ tsp curry powder, yogurt, ketchup, Sriracha and garlic in small bowl for sauce. Let stand at room temperature while preparing burgers.
Step 2
Place turkey, next 6 ingredients, remaining 1/4 Cup mayonnaise, and 4 tsp curry powder in large bowl. Mix with fork or hands just until blended (do not over mix). Divide mixture into 4 equal portions. Using wet hands, form each portion into patty about 3.5 inches round and 1 to 1.5 inches thick.
Step 3
Preheat broiler or heat 1 Tbsp oil in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. If broiling patties, brush rimmed baking sheet with 1 Tbsp oil and arrange patties on sheet. Broil (or cover patties in skillet and cook in batches) until cooked through, pressing patties down lightly with spatula before turning over, about 3 minutes per side (or 4 minutes per side if cooking in skillet).
Step 4
Place patties on bottom halves of buns. Top each patty with sauce. Layer with lettuce, tomato and onions. Finally, crown your burger with the top part of the bun. Enjoy!

Chef Maria Sparks says:

Chef’s note: We love to grill our King’s Hawaiian hamburger buns! Right before you construct your burger, put a little butter in a pan on medium heat. Place the open face of your buns down in pan and toast buns. Be sure to keep a close eye on your bread so that it does not burn. This makes a burger so much better!
