Huy Fong Paleo Turkey Burgers with Tomato-Avocado Mayo

Do you know what Huy Fong is? It’s the parent company to my favorite condiment (I’m going to be honest…It took me awhile to remember how to spell that. I kept putting “condoment” ugh), Sriracha. You know, the red stuff with the green top and the rooster on the bottle.

Anyway, *LOVE* that stuff. With a pink, puffy heart.

The other day, I found myself with some frozen turkey and some leftover homemade avocado mayo (Find it here: http://fastpaleo.com/avocado-mayonnaise/). I whipped up this little ditty, Huy Fong Paleo Turkey Burgers with Tomato-Avocado Mayo. I like my recipes like I like my men–with long…. names. Get your mind of the gutter.

You’ll need:

1-1.5 lbs of ground turkey (leanness of your choosing. I went with extra lean so I could have more avocado)

2 tbsp whole grain mustard (I used Grey Poupon..I can’t say this brand with out thinking “for me to poop on”. Prime parenting material right here)

1-1.5 tbsp Sriracha (or more or less to your taste)

3-4 green onions, chopped (use only the useful tasty parts, obv)

salt and pepper, to taste

1/4 c prepared avocado mayo (link above)

2-3 tbsp plain mayo (store bought or homemade, just try to avoid one made with soybean/canola/corn oil)

1/2 c chopped tomato (I used quartered grape tomatoes)

more salt and pep, to taste

Salad greens for serving

1. Plop turkey, mustard, Sriracha, green onions and salt and pep in a bowl. Mix it up. Well. Divide into your desired size portions (I did 1/4 lb-ers). Roll into ball and then flatten to make patty. Toss your flattened patties into a preheated, oiled skillet. Let ’em cook about 5-7 minutes a side, or until the middle of the patty is no longer springy.

2. Mix the mayos and tomatoes together. Add a little salt and pepper to get desired yum quotient.

3. Arrange a bed of salad on a plate, top with a turkey burger and top that with some of your mayo mixture. If you’re feeling crazy or like you need more fat, add some sliced avocado.
