Healthy Eating – The Most Delicious Turkey Burger Ever



Can you relate to this familiar scenario?

The other night I’m on my way home and I’m starving, start running through my head what’s in the fridge and cabinets, debating whether or not to order takeout. Then in an inspired moment of healthy-culinary-creativity I channel my inner Heather Pierce and come up with this:

The Most Delicious Turkey Burger Ever


1 lb antibiotic and hormone free ground turkey

sesame seeds

light teriyaki sauce (about 1 tsp)

coconut oil (about 1 tsp)

1/2 red onion, finely chopped

minced garlic


-lightly sautee onion and garlic

-combine with ground turkey, coconut oil, light teriyaki, and sesame seeds to taste

-get up in there with your hands “Italian Grandma Style”, mix it up and roll into patties

-You can bake, grill, George Forman, or cook them on the stove top

Serves 4-6

Why is this the most delicious turkey burger ever? Because it tastes like you’re vacationing on an island somewhere, not in your own kitchen at home…and who doesn’t LOVE vacation? Give  it a try.  ENJOY!

    This looks great – gonna pin it now. My favorite turkey burger recipe isn’t quite as clean, but I sub all-white ground turkey and the burger is very, very tasty (good cold, too, on top of a salad!).

    Love “Italian grandmother-style” — get up in there!! Sounds delicious, I can’t wait eat the sh*t out of this burger.

  • gina

    Since I’m trying more of a ‘neanderthal’ diet, this recipe will come in handy!
    Thank you!

  • adita

    This looks and sounds Delish! Now question is where do I get hormone and antibiotic free ground turkey?? 🙂 I have never cooked with it before but am looking forward to grillin it up!

  • Gerilyn

    Looks tasty, but teriyaki sauce contains gluten… and I was under the impression you advocate against gluten?

    • Liz DiAlto

      You are correct Gerilyn, not every recipe on my site is gluten free though. Thanks for clarifying 🙂

    FANTASTIC!  This truly is the best Turkey Burger!  I have been trying for years to get my husband to eat Turkey Burgers..he complains they are tasteless and too dry.  Not so with this recipe. Dinner tonight was wonderful! Thanks!

    • Liz DiAlto

      Yes! I’m so glad he liked it 🙂
