Super flavourful and easy to make, these juicy turkey burgers make a quick and healthy main for lunch or dinner. They’re also low FODMAP as well as Paleo and Whole30 friendly using a Paleo/Whole30 compliant bun alternative.



  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp garlic-infused olive oil
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos 
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp dried chives
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp avocado oil (for the pan if not using non-stick)
  • 4 buns (see notes for options)
  • Your favourite burger toppings (see notes for options)


  1. Add ground turkey, egg, garlic-infused olive oil, coconut aminos, parsley, chives, salt, and pepper to a large bowl and mix with your hands or a spoon until just combined.
  2. Using your hands, shape turkey mixture into 4 patties with your hands and place on a large plate. The patties should each be about about 3.5” in diameter and about 1” thick. Stick the plate of burger patties in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  3. Place a large skillet on medium heat and add the avocado oil (if using). Once hot, add the burger patties and sear on each side for 4-5 minutes or until they reach 165°F per an instant read thermometer.
  4. Remove from heat, serve on a bun (or bun alternative) with your favourite toppings and sides, like my Air Fryer French Fries (Paleo, Whole30, Low FODMAP) or Broccoli Salad with Bacon (Paleo, Whole30, Low FODMAP).
