Ingredients
2 slices whole-wheat sandwich bread, crusts removed, torn into pieces
12 ounces lean ground turkey breast, (see Ingredient Note)
1 8-ounce can sliced water chestnuts, rinsed and chopped
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce, (see Ingredient Note)
2 scallions, trimmed and sliced
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
Sesame Mayonnaise, optional (recipe follows)

Preparation

1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
2. Place bread in a food processor and pulse into fine crumbs. Transfer to a large bowl. Add ground turkey, water chestnuts, hoisin, scallions, ginger, garlic and salt; mix well. (The mixture will be moist.) With dampened hands, form the mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties (see Tip).
