Homemade turkey burgers

After making these bad boys the other day, I decided I had to share the recipe given the amount of love this photo got on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Even the folks from Whole30 themselves gave it a favourite on Twitter!

I love burgers, but I find I can end up eating a lot of beef if I’m not meal planning carefully so I decided to snag some ground turkey to make a lighter yet still tasty lunch that was also Whole30 and auto-immune protocol-friendly.

Feel free to adjust anything according to what you have on hand meat, spice and condiment-wise. Burgers are very forgiving and cooking should be fun, easy and compatible with your lifestyle.

Easy Awesome Turkey Burgers (Makes 6-8)

  • 2 pounds ground turkey (or chicken, or beef)
  • 2 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1 tbsp dried onion
  • 1 tbsp dried minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp dried thyme (sage or rosemary would also be lovely)

In a large bowl mix all ingredients until well combined. Divide into 6-8 equal portions and shape into patties (or use a burger maker like I did). Grill on the barbecue until cooked through, about 5-7 minutes per side. Cook all at once and eat within three days, or freeze and cook later on.

Serve on a ‘bun’ of lettuce, sweet potatoes or whatever other gluten-free bun you like. Top with guacamole (I mix an avocado with the juice of 1/2 a lime) and any other toppings you like. I used a slice of roasted beet to give the feel of a tomato and broccoli sprouts I scored at my local farmer’s market.

Let me know if you make these burgers and how you like them!
