  1. First, put the julienned carrots (long, thin slices) and cucumber into a small container. Add the vinegar and let the veggies sit for about 30 minutes.
  2. While that sits, mix the ground turkey with the furikake seasoning. Once combined, use the hands to create 4-5 large patties.
  3. Next, set the grill (or large frying pan) to medium heat. Place the patties on the grill (or skillet), until they are cooked all the way through. This takes about 4 minutes.
  4. While our patties are cooking, grab a separate skillet and set it to low heat. Melt butter in the skillet, and crack 4 eggs into it. Cook the eggs sunny-side-up style. Be sure to cook the whites all the way through, while leaving the yolk tender and runny.
  5. When everything is done cooking, take the buns, and spread the gochujang and mayo onto the bottom bun, set the burger. For the rest of the toppings, add in whichever order you please. (egg, pickled carrots, fried egg, nori, kimchi, cucumber, beansprouts)
