Juicy Flavorful Healthy Turkey Burgers with Gluten Free Modifications

Want a juicy burger that is not full of fat and grease, but still tastes amazing? Look no further. I have made cooked these several times and they are so good. I have made them with gluten free bread crumbs, panko bread crumbs and regular whole wheat bread crumbs.  My kids love these burgers, as do I! My mouth is watering just typing this up! We like to eat our burgers on English muffins or bagel thins.

Juicy Flavorful Healthy Turkey Burgers



Yields 5 thick burgers
Ingredients:

  • 1.5 lbs lean ground turkey
  • 1/3 cup gluten free bread crumbs (panko, or regular bread crumbs work too)
  • 1 Tbsp Braggs liquid Amino's, or Worcestershire Sauce 
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder or 1 clove of garlic grated or chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp coarse ground black pepper or a few twists of fresh pepper
  • 1/4 tsp rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
Directions:

Place turkey, 1/3 cup bread crumbs, egg, Worcestershire sauce, and spices. Use hands to combine. Shape into 5 patties. Grill outside on a hot grill until the internal temperature reaches 160 - 165*. Serve on a hamburger bun, bagel thin, or English muffin with a little ketchup and mustard. You can even top it off with some fresh spinach, tomato and onion.









If you use a 3 lb package of turkey, double the recipe and add a little more bread crumbs. Yields approx 13 - 4oz burgers


These freeze and reheat well in the microwave. Serve with 1/2 cup barley and steamed broccoli for a quick and easy meal.
