  • 1 lb organic ground turkey
  • 1/2 C bread crumbs whole wheat
  • 3 tbsp onion minced
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 2 garlic cloves cloves, minced
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 6 kaiser rolls


For the Burgers

  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients (except hamburger buns). Shape the mixture into six even patties.
  • Grill for about 5 minutes per side. Cooking time is approximate. You should always cook your turkey burgers to an internal temperature of 165 degrees.

To Serve

  • Serve on buns with desired toppings. Try a slice or two of avocado instead of (or in addition to) the normal lettuce, tomato and onion!


Chef's Notes:
  •  Alternatively, you could pan fry or broil these burgers
  • To save even more on your carbs (or if you are gluten intolerant) substitute the regular burger buns for a low carb version, or english muffins, or even lettuce leaves.
