A quick and easy recipe for a healthy alternative to beef burgers. Organic ground turkey costs a bit more than ground beef but is an excellent source of lean protein. One serving of turkey provides more than half your body’s protein requirement, with half the fat of beef and 30% fewer calories.Turkey also contains the trace mineral selenium, plus niacin and Vitamin B6.

Makes 12 bun-sized patties

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 lbs. organic ground turkey
  • 1/3 cup olive oil (you can also use coconut oil)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. onion powder
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. I find that my hands are the best tools for this!
Use a 1/3 cup scoop to measure out patties. This ensures even cooking time.

Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil (or coconut oil) in a large skillet over medium heat. 

Cook patties 4 min on first side, 3 minutes on second or until nicely browned on each side.

Serve with your choice of buns or other starch and veggies.
