Paleo Turkey Burger

PALEO     |     Grain Free     |     Gluten Free     |     Dairy Free     |     Organic

Phebe – My Easter brunch today consisted of these delicious turkey burgers! I’m going on week 7 of my Crohn’s flare and now I’m following an anti-parasite diet (no sugar whatsoever, no grains, no dairy, and LOTS of pumpkin seeds, protein, and vegetables). SO, I made these delicious juicy burgers!

Ingredients (makes 4 burgers):

16 oz (one pound) organic ground turkey meat (no preservatives, no additives, no antibiotics, no hormones)

2 green onion (chopped)

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp corriander

1 tsp paprika

4 large organic eggs (for topping)

Spinach

Vegan cheese (optional)

Grilled mushrooms (optional)

Any other toppings you want!

Note: be careful of condiments, there is often a lot of sugar in sauces such as ketchup and BBQ sauce

Instructions:

  1. Grease pan with oil (avocado oil, olive oil, coconut oil, grapeseed oil).
  2. Combine ground turkey, salt, pepper, coriander, paprika, and green onion
  3. Using washed hands massage the meat and mix in the spices
  4. Split meat up into four or five even pieces
  5. Roll meat into ball and then flatten. Tip: make a small indent in the middle of the patty – when the burgers are ready to be flipped, you will see that this hole will be filled with “sweat” (the juices of the burger)
  6. Places burgers into pan and let cook for approximately 7 minutes on one side. Can also cook on the grill – you’ll know when to flip when they are “sweating”
  7. In a separate pan fry the eggs in oil.
  8. When the burgers have one minute left to cook put a piece of vegan cheese on the top so it melts onto the burger.
  9. Make a bed of spinach on your plate and put the turkey burger on top, then place the egg on top of the burger and you’re ready to EAT!

Grilled/sautéed mushrooms are a really yummy addition to this recipe.
