Servings 4 people


  • 20 lbs 97% Ground Turkey

  • 1 Tbsp Onion Powder

  • 1/2 Tbsp Paprika
  • 1/2 Tbsp Black Pepper

  1. Line a baking sheet or large plate with parchment paper or foil. Set to the side.

  2. In a large bowl, using your hands, combine the ground turkey, onions, olive oil, onion powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, cumin, poultry seasoning, black pepper, and sea salt. 

  3. You can split the ground turkey mixture into four 5 ounce patties or five 4 ounce patties. (I usually make four 5 oz. patties)

  4. Lightly spray a large frying pan with cooking spray and heat the pan over medium high heat.

  5. Once the pan is hot gently place one burger patty in the pan at a time. (You don’t want to overcrowd and slow down the cooking)

  6. Cooking the patty one each side for 3-4 minutes or until it’s the golden brown color your desire. Place the patty to the side on a clean board or dish and allow to sit while you cook the others.

  7. Repeat steps 4-7 for each burger patty until you’re finished. After you’ve cooked each lean turkey burger put your patty together with any other desired ingredients on a lower carb bun and enjoy!
