These guacamole turkey burgers are a great way to use lean ground turkey. Great as a burger, or you could even make meatballs with them and dip in guacamole. Gluten-free, dairy-free only 230 cals per burger with topping.
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey (or 454 g or 16 oz)
  • ½ cup quick oats
  • 3 egg whites
  • ½ large avocado or 1 small-medium sized one (136 g or 5 oz), mashed with a fork
  • ½ cup onion, chopped
  • 1 small tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • 2 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  1. First, prepare the guacamole. In a medium sized bowl, mash the avocado. Add in the onion, garlic, tomato, lime juice, cilantro, salt & pepper.
  2. Once combined, remove ½ cup of the guacamole to reserve for topping
  3. In another bowl, combine raw turkey, oats and egg whites and remaining guacamole and mix until combined. Mixture will be quite wet.
  4. Heat a griddle, large skillet or pre-heat your oven (any method will work). If you use an indoor grill, be sure to oil it very well as I noticed with mine, when it clamped down on the meat, it stuck a little. Next time I'll use a skillet instead.
  5. Form into 4 burgers and cook until no longer pink (in a skillet, should take about 6-7 min per side, in the oven, 350 degrees for approx 15-20 min)
  6. Serve each burger with 2 Tbsp reserved guacamole on top.
