Meet your newest, juiciest, healthy bff - the turkey burger. Turkey burgers are awesome alternatives to your standard beef burger. Packed with flavor, loaded with lean protein, and quickly cooked stove top, it’s a no brainer!
These turkey burgers are a go-to in our house. They are great for meal-prep, quick lunch, or a Friday night date night! Enjoy them “naked” on top of crunchy lettuce, on top of a salad, inside a burger bowl with fresh ingredients, or just sandwiched between your favorite bun.
I like to use super lean ground turkey (99% lean if I’m lucky, but 85% can be easier to find). The trick is to add in your own healthy fats to take the juicy factor up a notch. Think rich olive oil, or smooth avocado oil, or some macadamia nut oil if you’re feeling fancy. The spices are also key here. I love adding nutritional yeast* into my savory recipes if you haven’t noticed. Throw in some fresh black pepper, paprika, and a little sea salt and you’ve got yourself a SUPER easy, flavorful burger ladies and gents!
*New to nutritional yeast? It’s simply an inactive yeast that packs a lot of nutrients (hence the name). It adds a little “cheesy” flavor to dishes but contains no dairy. Interested? Check out my “cheesy” popcorn, or this cauliflower alfredo pasta, or maybe these easy turkey meatballs.Print
