The Best BBQ Turkey Burger

This burger is dee-licious, and mostly healthy too! We had some raw veggies on the side and it was the perfect summer meal. 

A note on the raw veggies: We've recently started using the NutriBullet to make green smoothies, and part of their transformation plan is incorporating more raw veggies into your meals. We've found it to be a yummy change in our diet, and I won't lie, it's so much easier to prepare dinner now! 

The Best BBQ Turkey Burger 

1 package lean all natural ground turkey
Ground mustard
Garlic powder
Worcestershire sauce
BBQ sauce
Panko bread crumbs

Sweet onion, sliced into rings
Colby Jack cheese

Mix turkey, spices, worcestershire sauce, BBQ sauce, and bread crumbs in a bowl. Add the spices to taste. I tend to be a little more heavy handed when cooking with turkey because I think it needs a little help in the flavor department. I did a few shakes of worcestershire and about a tablespoon of BBQ sauce. You don't need much panko, maybe a few tablespoons. It helps to hold the patties together on the grill. 

Grill the burgers and the sweet onion rings (I added a little oil and salt and pepper to the onions first). Once the burgers and onions are done you will assemble the burgers while they are still on the grill. Put some grilled onion rings on top of each burger. Squeeze a small amount of BBQ sauce on the center of each burger (it fits perfectly in the hole in the center of the onion rings!). Layer the colby jack cheese on top and close the grill lid until the cheese is melted. 

That's it! We served them bun-less with some fresh sliced avocado and a mix of raw sugar snap peas and baby carrots.
