Air Fryer Asian Turkey Burger With Apple Slaw Recipe

Air Fryer Asian Turkey Burger With Apple Slaw Recipe

I wanted to give my turkey burgers a bit of an Asian flair. On a whim, I added hoisin sauce, ginger and garlic. We love this version so much, we now eat them at least once a week.



  • 3 green onions, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. hoisin sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. minced fresh gingerroot
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • 1 ¼ lbs. ground turkey


  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ⅛ tsp. pepper
  • 2 medium apples, julienned
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped


  • 4 hamburger buns, split and toasted
  • 2 Tbsp. hoisin sauce

1. Preheat air fryer to 350°. In a large bowl, mix green onions, hoisin sauce, ginger, garlic, salt and pepper. Add turkey; mix lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four ¾-in.-thick patties.

2. Place burgers in a single layer on greased tray in air-fryer basket. Cook until a thermometer reads 165°, 5-6 minutes on each side.

3. Meanwhile, for slaw, in a large bowl, whisk oil, vinegar, mustard, salt and pepper. Add apples and green onions; toss to coat.

4. To assemble, spread bun bottoms with hoisin sauce. Top with burgers and slaw; replace tops.

Freeze option: Place patties on a foil-lined baking sheet; wrap and freeze until firm. Remove from pan and transfer to a freezer container; return to freezer. To use, cook the frozen patties as directed, increasing cook time as necessary for a thermometer to read 165°.
