One of my favorite things to make for the week are different varieties of turkey burgers…they are so easy to put together and do not take too long! I try to make either turkey burgers or turkey meatballs each week to have on hand for a quick lunch or dinner. I usually have them in a pita, wrapped in lettuce, over zucchini noodles or with a side of veggies and sweet potato fries!
This week, I made slightly spicy turkey burgers with lime and coconut aminos! I have to say that they were the juiciest ones I have made and my favorite! I added in chopped zucchini as well, but you can sub that with red peppers, onions, or leave it completely out.
The recipe that I am sharing with you today makes about 7. I baked them in the oven, but you can totally throw them on the grill for extra crispy burgers! Once they are completely cool, store them in the fridge for up to 5 days!
I hope you enjoy!
