Loaded Turkey Burgers

These Loaded Turkey Burgers use a mix of ground pork and ground turkey, so they are incredibly juicy and flavorful! I add in fresh garlic, red peppers, and chives. Plus you can even add in cheese!

Why You'll Love This Recipe

You will love this recipe for Loaded Turkey Burgers because these are not your boring or bland turkey burger! I use a mix of ground pork and ground turkey for an incredibly juicy burger. I mix in garlic, onions, and chives for even more flavor.

Plus, if you want to add in cheese you can add in my favorite Organic Valley American Cheese! I like to top these Loaded Turkey Burgers with avocado. You can add classic toppings like ketchup or mustard but I really like adding BBQ sauce instead!

These Loaded Turkey Burgers can be served on a classic bun, or you can serve them lettuce wrap style for a leaner option. I created this recipe with my friends at Organic Prairie, using their amazing organic ground pork and turkey!

Why go organic?

You may be wondering why I push organic ingredients for everything, even savory and healthy dishes. Organic ingredients go beyond just health and wellness, and contribute so much to the taste and flavor of a recipe. So, if you think that you're making something healthy and buying fruits, veggies, or meats so maybe you don't need to spend the extra to go organic here – let me sway your thinking.

Organic ingredients are made in a more pure way, therefore using no additives, no GMOs, and minimal ingredients. This really allows the true ingredients to shine – and because of that their flavor shines through. Therefore, organic ingredients are more flavorful than their non organic counterparts. So, just because it's already a healthy recipe, or you're already buying good for you ingredients – it doesn't mean you can skip organic! Trust me here, and make the switch. Your body and your taste buds will thank you!

So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
