My love for an amazing juicy burger runs deep. I actually spent over an entire decade not eating red meat but once they were re-introduced back into my diet about 6 years ago after finding a grass-fed sustainable farm I loved, I’ve never looked back! I don’t eat beef very often, maybe once or twice per month, turkey burgers are a once a week meal around our house. My family and I enjoy eating a juicy burger especially when the weather is nice outside and we can eat on the deck and grill outside. You will find they are so simple to make, and just as juicy and flavorful as a regular burger, but much less calories.
What I love about grilled turkey burgers, is that it’s so easy to really add a ton of flavor. For this recipe, I used Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, fresh chopped cilantro, salt and garlic oil (you could use real garlic if you are not fodmap sensitive).
1 lb fresh organic ground turkey
1 1/2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped
1 1/2 tbsp adobo sauce
1/3 cup fresh chopped cilantro (or more if you love cilantro like I do)
1 tsp garlic oil (or 1 clove of chopped garlic if you are not sensitive to fodmaps)
3/4 tsp Real Salt
4 gluten free hamburger buns or large romaine lettuce leaves for a burger wrap
In a medium sized bowl, mix together chipotle pepper, adobo sauce, cilantro, garlic oil, and salt. Mix with your hands until all ingredients are well incorporated.
Form mixture into 4 patties. Place in a cookie sheet or large plate, and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes. I've skipped this step and have found them to be just as flavorful.
Meanwhile, warm up your grill to medium hot. Place burgers on the grill, and cook for 5-8 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
Remove and serve on top of a hamburger bun, or in a lettuce wrap. Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy! My favorite is the lettuce wrap with my creamy avocado sauce on top!
