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.

Comments

  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.
