I call these sneaky because we added a lot of veggies to the mix – satisfies the meat eaters in our lives and gets some veggies in there too.  We (Katie, Ky and I) made a whole bunch of these during one of our cooking nights.  They seriously kick butt.  I mixed mine with Coffee & Bourbon BBQ Sauce prior to forming patties.  Cheers!  Ren

Burger on the barbie1/4 of a whole green cabbage
1 c mushrooms
1 egg
1 clove garlic , minced
1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/4 cup chopped water chestnuts
2 tbsp chopped green onions
2 tbsp teriyaki sauce
2 tsp chopped fresh ginger root
1-1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 lb lean ground pork
1/2 lb ground turkey

Chop up cabbage and mushrooms and cook in a pan until all the liquid is out (you might want to drain it a bit – just make sure it’s not too wet when you add to the meat).  Meanwhile, beat egg in a large bowl and combine with garlic, bread crumbs, water chestnuts, green onion, teriyaki sauce, ginger, mustard, salt and pepper. Mix in pork, turkey, cabbage and mushrooms; shape into six 3/4-inch (2 cm) thick patties. Can be frozen or cooked right away.
