This is my personal favorite turkey burger... and it's so easy to fix these savory and juicy low carb turkey burgers.
The 3 pepper & onion veggie blend is commonly available in frozen food section of the supermarket, and saves lots of time and prep work; combining with the Thick-it-up™ low carb thickener keeps 'em juicy and moist.
1 16 oz. package ground turkey (we used 93%- lean)
1 12 oz. package frozen 3 Pepper & Onion Veggies, partially defrosted
3/4 Teaspoon Thick It Up™ Low Carb Thickener
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (like Lawry's)
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Pepper
1 teaspoon Cajun Seasonings or 2 teaspoons Italian seasonings
Chop the veggies in smaller pieces. In medium-size bowl, combine veggies and
all other ingredients. Stir with spoon to blend well.
*If using a non stick skillet or fry pan you probably won't need to coat it first.
*Partially defrosting the frozen veggies makes them easier to chop.
*Individually wrapping the prepared patties before freezing makes it easy to separate them later. Just pop in microwave to reheat.
low carb turkey burger ingredients
Coat a large 10" skillet with non stick cooking spray and heat skillet on medium high till sprinkled on water bounces off.
Spoon burgers into skillet in 7 mounds and press down to make patty size portions. Lightly spray the tops of the burgers with non-stick cooking spray.
Cook patties for 10 minutes, flip and cook for 10 minutes more until juices run clear.
Add a bit of water to the skillet if necessary to prevent sticking. Store in fridge for 3 days or tightly freeze for six months. Makes 7 burgers, just 2 net carbs per burger.
