Avocado Turkey Burgers are a light summer burger recipe that everyone will love! Switch our your normal burgers on the grill with a healthier bbq option filled with fresh avocado.
YOUR NEW SUMMER BURGER – DELICIOUS AVOCADO TURKEY BURGERS!
We are always looking for new grilling options and meal ideas for the summer. I feel like I have so many great cold weather meals – comfort meals like pasta, soups and oven roasted meats.
But for summer, I want lighter, healthier dinner ideas, which often means relying on chicken or turkey instead of beef. I’ve always loved a thick juicy beef burger with bacon on top, but it isn’t exactly the healthiest option.
Instead, we’ve been trying to put turkey burgers and chicken burgers into the rotation as well. They don’t completely replace my thick beef burgers, but they are still delicious. I even find there are a lot more fun toppings or fillings for poultry burgers that I prefer than beef burgers.
This recipe for Avocado Turkey Burgers is one of them!
I’m a huge avocado fan, and adding fresh avocado into this burger brings a great flavor to the turkey as well as good moisture. It’s definitely not a dry burger at all, which I know some people worry about when it comes to using ground poultry.
Looking to make this burger an even healthier meal? The flavor is definitely good enough to enjoy bun-less with some fresh tomatoes on the side. It results in a nice, light meal for summer without giving up on good flavors.
But let’s be honest – bacon would also be really good on top of an Avocado Turkey Burger because bacon really does make most things better!
HOW TO MAKE TURKEY BURGERS WITH AVOCADO:
This turkey burger recipe with avocado makes for the perfect weeknight dinner option because it comes together quickly – both the meal prep and the actual cooking of the burger.
To make the patties, place everything together into a bowl (minus the bread crumbs listed), mix thoroughly and then shape into your burger patties. If the patty isn’t staying together because there is too much moisture, then add the bread crumbs to the mix and try again.
Adding the avocado and minced garlic adds a lot of moisture to the recipe so you definitely want to add the breadcrumbs if the patties won’t stay together from the beginning. You will need to be able to flip these at least a couple of times on the grill and wouldn’t want them to fall apart on you.

- 1 pound ground turkey

- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/3 cup bread crumbs if patties are extra moist and having trouble staying together
Add all your ingredients (minus the bread crumbs) to a large bowl and gently mix together. If patties seem really moist and won't form together well for you, add 1/3 cup bread crumbs.
Shape into patties and grill, making sure to cook the turkey meat completely. I use a meat thermometer to check.
