PALEO GARLIC HERB TURKEY BURGERS
(GLUTEN FREE, GRAIN FREE, DAIRY FREE)
#AD Grilled burgers are a regular occurrence in my house. In the warmer weather, there is nothing better than a smoky grilled burger. During the winter months, I rely on my beloved indoor grill for that same grilled flavor. From hamburgers to turkey burgers and everything in between, there is simply nothing better than grilling season! Turkey burgers can sometimes be a little bland – the key is adding a really good combination of seasoning. I came across this McCormick Grill Mates Roasted Garlic and Herb Seasoning at my local Walmart, which ended up being PERFECT. Huge notes of garlic really hit the spot! I love using spices and seasonings as a way to elevate flavor in an easy way.
After preheating your grill, simply mix the ground meat with the seasonings and you’re good to go! This will make about 4 large burgers or 6 small burgers. I grill mine for about 5-6 minutes on each side; this allows a nice char on both sides and allows them to cook through. Unlike with ground beef, you do NOT want any pink in the middle. Make sure these are cooked thoroughly. For turkey burgers, you want the internal temperature to be at least 165 degrees F.
These turkey burgers are foolproof and couldn’t be any easier! Just some ground meat, seasonings and you’re all set. They’re great for backyard BBQs, a family gathering or just a fun and easy weeknight dinner. I like to pair mine with some homemade fries but they really go with everything. Simple, easy and flavorful!
