Bunless Herbed Turkey Burgers Recipe

We love the grill for most any meal. And, for a slight twist on the standard, we like to mix it up by making turkey burgers.

 

 

Ground turkey is a great source of lean protein. And we keep this meal gluten-free and low-carb by foregoing a bun — replacing it with a nice Bibb lettuce “wrap.”

 

When paired with tomato, onion, pickle, avocado, and whatever-else-you-prefer, these turkey burgers are a delicious alternative to beef (which you’ll never hear us complain about, either).

 

So, break out the grill and get practicing with this recipe. Those summer parties and holidays are right around the corner!
