Zesty Turkey Burgers

It’s unfortunate that turkey burgers have gotten a bad rap.  Well, I’m here to change that!  Ground turkey is a wonderful and healthy alternative to your typical beef burger.  Because it is important to cook turkey burgers well done, you must load it up with plenty of flavor.  The addition of dijon mustard really brings these burgers to the next level.  I like to make a double batch and freeze them for a last minute dinner.

Zesty Turkey Burgers

  • 2 lbs ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup almond flour, packed
  • 1 egg
  1. Combine all ingredients (easiest to use your hands.)
  2. Shape into patties.
  3. Heat a saute pan with a little bit of olive oil.
  4. Pan fry about 3-5 minutes on each side.  To ensure they are done, check with a meat thermometer.   You can also broil these burgers in the oven.
  5. Enjoy them on a fresh salad or on my Onion Cheddar Biscuits.

  • This post came out just in time for my dinner. We had beef…so I made hamburgers, but added everything you posted in your recipe. YUM was the sound I heard around the table. This is going in my recipe binder. :)

  • Just recently found your blog as I’m convinced I need to cut wheat and gluten out of my diet, I have constant energy and weight issues, plus tested as allergic to wheat and gluten. I made a variation of these today, mainly adding one grated zucchini. These burgers are really delicious!

  • I’m new to the Gf world and until now I basically felt like a fish out of water. I’m in search of a really good sandwich bread recipe more so for my husband I’m trying to get him on the same page.. It’s better for his health and mines, if you know what I mean.
