A fabulous, lighter burger to grill this summer - Avocado Turkey Burgers! |The Love NerdsA goal for this summer is to find some lighter dinner ideas that are also quick, so we’re eating a lot of turkey and chicken. As much as I’ve always loved a juicy beef burger with bacon, it doesn’t exactly scream lighter. Therefore, I’m trying out some new turkey burger ideas and absolutely love this one – Avocado Turkey Burgers.

These came together so fast and, as a huge avocado fan, I think the flavor was amazing! It is so good that I would eat this bun-less with some fresh tomatoes on the side. Nice and light for summer without giving up on good flavors. Not that bacon wouldn’t ALSO be delicious on top of these.

Recipe type: Main
Ingredients
  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 large ripe avocado - cut into chunks or gently mashed
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ⅓ cup bread crumbs if patties are extra moist and having trouble staying together
Instructions
  1. 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 ⅓ cup bread crumbs.
  2. Shape into patties and grill, making sure to cook the turkey meat completely. I use a meat thermometer to check.



A fabulous, lighter burger to grill this summer - Avocado Turkey Burgers! |The Love NerdsI was trying really hard not to add too much into the burger – light and simple was the goal – so I did not add any bread crumbs into the burgers. They were a bit juicy but held together for a couple flips. If the burgers are not sticking together when you form the patties, you will definitely want to add the bread crumbs to help them stay together as patties.

  1. I’m going to try my burgers with avocado! It doesn’t turn colors after grilling? I use steel cut oats to sub bread crumbs for my turkey burgers so it’s not too mushy and very nutritious! I grind 1/4 of a cup per lb in my rocket blender! ?

    • I did not but have seen the recipe since when someone pointed out the similarities before. There are a few differences and there are plenty of variations out there on both the chicken and turkey avocado burger.

  2. I love it since my passion is making and discovering other ways burger patty. I used to mold beef patty but found patty maker that makes my job easy, the thickness are the same with all the patty I made, I can compressed the beef and my customers loved it.
