- 2 lbs. ground turkey
- 6 slices bacon, cooked & crumbled (save the grease!)
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 1 small red apple, finely chopped
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 2 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 Tbsp avocado oil
Saute onion, apple, garlic salt and pepper in hot bacon drippings 7 minutes or until apple is soft; remove from heat, and cool.
Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Combine ground turkey, basil, egg yolk, onion mixture and bacon in a bowl. Shape into 10 patties (1/2 in. thick)(about 1/2 cup each.) Place patties on grill rack rubbed with avocado oil. Grill, covered with grill lid, 5 to 6 minutes per side or until no longer pink in the middle. Serve between lettuce leaves for that pure Paleo diet experience, or live a little and have it on a good ol’ hamburger bun. A salad on the side is always nice too.
Don’t want to grill it? Cook patties in a skillet over medium-high heat 4-5 minutes per side or until no longer pink in the middle.
These smell amazing, and they make the most flavorful turkey burgers we’ve ever had. Even our picky 2-yr-old loves them. If you try it, leave a comment to let me know how you enjoyed it!
