Strawberry Turkey Burgers

I considered titling this “The Most Interesting Burger You’ll Ever Eat.”  For real!  The whole time I was prepping and cooking these guys, I was so intrigued and excited to try the outcome!  And I must tell you, I was not disappointed!  In fact, I was snapping photos and sending them to all my foodie family members back in Washington because I was so enjoying this creative, out of the ordinary recipe!  As you can probably guess, this goes hand in hand with the Strawberry Salsa recipe I gave you earlier this week!  I’m too excited to say anything else…let’s get down to business!!  (Insert manly voice…to defeat the Huns, HYEAH!) <— If you understood that reference, you are my new best friend.

Adapted from Abel James, The Fat Burning Man:


So, here’s what you need:

  • 1 lb Ground Turkey
  • 1 C Strawberry, Diced
  • 1/2 Red Onion, Diced
  • 3 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 Tbsp Almond Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Flax Meal
  • Handful Fresh Spinach, Chopped
  • Salt and Pepper

And here’s how you do it:

  1. In a large bowl, combine strawberry, onion, garlic, and spinach.
  2. Add in turkey, egg, almond flour, flax meal, salt and pepper.  Mix it all together until combined.
  3. Form into patties.
  4. Heat a small amount of grass fed butter in the bottom of a cast iron skillet, medium heat.  Place patties in skillet and cook for about 8 minutes per side, covering at least the first 8 minutes.  You can also attempt a grill, that was the original method but it was cold outside the day I made these.  🙂
  5. Top with Strawberry Salsa and enjoy your impressively creative meal!!
