Bun-less Turkey Burgers

  • Prep Time: 5m
  • Cook Time: 15m
  • Total Time: 20m
  • Serves: 4 people
  • Yield: 4 turkey burger patties


  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • ½ small onion, chopped fine
  • 3 tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • salt and pepper

Optional Toppings

  • Jalapenos
  • Avocado
  • Tomatoes
  • Red onion
  • Lettuce


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Mix everything together, but do not overwork the meat.
  3. Once all the ingredients are incorporated, divide the burgers into 4 patties.
  4. Heat a grill pan over medium/high heat with some avocado oil and ghee. When the pan is hot, sear the burgers. Cook them on each side for about 4-6 minutes until they form a nice golden brown edge, then finish in the oven. Bake them in the oven for 8-10 minutes depending on how thick your patties are.
  5. Place the burgers on a bed of lettuce (I prefer to use arugula or romaine). Then I like to top mine with sliced avocado, red onions, jalapenos and tomatoes. Feel free to put whatever veggies you prefer on top!
