Turkey Vegetable Burgers

  • Gluten Free
  • 45 minutes
  • Serves 4
  • Easy



Today had us craving burgers. My mom makes a mean turkey burger, loaded with grated vegetables that is satisfying, yet doesn’t come with all of the calories and heartburn of a genuine beef cheeseburger. Now, I have nothing against a good cheeseburger, but there’s something slightly virtuous about my mom’s turkey burgers that makes them okay to eat more often.

The best thing about these turkey patties is that you can sneak all kinds of vegetables into them, and you really can’t taste them since they’re grated, i.e. great for kids or picky eaters. Zucchini, carrots and red onion all work wonderfully. I suppose you could add any grate-able vegetable to these and no one will be any the wiser.

I don’t recommend you use extra-lean ground turkey in this recipe, as it will make for a dry burger. Also, the cheddar cheese is optional if you’re dairy-free, but it does help bind the burgers so they don’t fall apart. It also adds a bit of lusciousness.

I say this in the recipe, but I’ll say it again here because it’s super important: do not grill these turkey patties on a gas or charcoal grill. They will not brown properly and will probably fall apart. Use a grill pan or skillet to get a nice caramelization on them, and don’t mess with them too much.

If you’re gluten free or paleo, these are great on their own, but you can also eat them as a burger on a gluten free or regular bun.
