Ingredients

Turkey Burger:

  • ½ yellow onion
  • 1 pound ground turkey lean
  • 1/2 cup pork rinds crushed (note 1 + 2)
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon avocado or vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon water

Serve With (options):

In-and-Out Sauce (optional, shown in photo):

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons low carb ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons dill pickles diced (Note 5)
  • 1/4 teaspoon liquid monk fruit
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill pickle juice

Instructions

  • Patties. Grate onion using a cheese grater. Measure 2 tablespoons of onion and place it in a large bowl-- discard the rest (should primarily be liquid). Add the turkey (1 pound), pork rinds (1/2 cup), Worcestershire (2 tablespoons), mustard (1 tablespoon), salt (3/4 teaspoon), and pepper (1/2 teaspoon), and mix using your hands until well combined. Shape turkey into 4, 1/2" thick patties.
  • Cook + serve. Heat oil (1 tablespoon) in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the patties and sear until browned on each side, about 4-5 minutes per side. Reduce heat of the pan to medium. Add water (1 tablespoon) and a lid to the pan (note 4), and continue to cook this way until the patties have reached an internal temp of 165 F. Serve with your burger toppings of choice, and enjoy!

Notes

  1. To crush the pork rinds - place them in a resealable bag, remove the air, and seal. Hit the bag with a rolling pin until they're breadcrumb-sized.
  2. Not a fan of pork rinds? You can skip, or use parmesan instead! Just know the burgers will be less juicy if you skip.
  3. Want to add your own seasoning? Feel free to add in your favorite herbs and spices before shaping your patties.
  4. Cooking method - You can cook turkey burgers on the grill, however, I MUCH prefer my method of pan-searing them, then adding a bit of water to the pan. Since turkey is so much leaner than beef, it's easy to dry out, but this technique gets them legit juicy!
  5. Pickles - Many pickles contain added sugar, check the labels before purchasing a product. We love Vlasic.
  6. Nutritional information is for 1 patty if you make 4, and doesn't include any of the toppings, buns, or sauce:
