Instructions

  • Form into hamburger patties. Place in freezer if going to grill to hold their shape for about 1 hour.
  • To pan fry, place 1 tablespoon of olive oil or oil of choice into frying pan and cook over medium heat the Low Carb Turkey Burgers about 3-4 minutes on each side or until the juices run clear.
  • If grilling, prepare your grill plate with liberal amounts of olive oil to prevent sticking. Grill over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes on each side until the juices run clear.
  • Wrap your cooked Low Carb Turkey Burgers in a lettuce leaf and top with all your favorites like pickles, tomatoes, onions, mayo, Dijon mustard, or anything your little heart desires and enjoy!

Notes

To keep this burger lower carb, we decided to serve our Low Carb Veggie Turkey Burger as a lettuce wrap. We topped our burger with avocado and some of our delicious Gingered Onion Gold Beet Refrigerator Pickles. We only used one carrot in the mix to make it colorful but you could swap out with spinach or grated broccoli or cauliflower to make it even lower carb.
We pan fried our Low Carb Veggie Turkey Burger in a little olive oil but you can also cook on the grill or BBQ outside. It has been so steamy hot lately and our deck gets full sun right around dinner time so sometimes we take the party inside.
