Bacon-Apple Turkey Burgers

turkey burgers

  • 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!
