Asian Burgers

“The East-meets-West flavor of these Asian-style burgers have made them a family favorite for over 20 years. They’re equally delicious cooked on the grill.” -Charlotte Giltner, Mesa, Arizona

    This was a nice twist for a change! If you like potstickers then you'll love this hamburger! It has a great texture and flavor with a nice fresh crunch here and there and the wasabi mayo is a nice touch.

    My family loved these burgers. Lots of flavor and texture. We left out the water chestnuts but kept everything else the same. I loved the Wasabi Mayo for myself but just used regular mayo for the kids. Will definatly make again.
