Thai Peanut Turkey Burgers

These were yummy and unique.  I really enjoy Thai flavors, I think mostly because I love incorporating peanuts or peanut butter into everything I can.

You may notice that these burgers look a little teeny in their buns.  The original recipe called for 8 semi-small burgers, but since it’s hard to find buns other then sliders or regular size, I altered the recipe  to be 6 instead of 8 semi-small ones.  If you follow the recipe below, yours will better fit your buns ;)
