Turkey Burgers

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup instant oatmeal
  • 1 small onion chopped (see notes)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Burger ingredients: buns, cheese, tomato, lettuce, onion, ketchup, etc.


  • 1 Hass avocado
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil (optional, use only if your avocado is not very ripe)
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro leaves chopped
  • 1 very small garlic clove minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt or adjust to taste
  • Pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Saute the chopped onion in about 1/2 tablespoon oil for a few minutes until the onion starts softening and browning. Or skip this step and use a teaspoon of onion powder instead.
  • Combine all the ingredients for the turkey burgers (ground turkey, egg, oatmeal, sauteed onion or onion powder, salt, pepper) into a bowl and mix well with a fork. Try not to mash the turkey, but to mix it instead. Using wet hands, form 4 - 6 burger patties. Wetting your hands between each burger will prevent the turkey from sticking to your hands.
  • Heat up some the olive oil (1-2 tablespoons) in your oven-safe pan, and carefully place the burgers into the pan. Cook for 3 minutes on each side, or until each side is nicely browned. The inside will still be raw at this point.
  • Transfer the browned burgers into the oven, and bake for 20 minutes, or until the inside of the burgers is fully cooked at 165F. Optional: top the burgers with cheese and put back in the oven for another minute, or until the cheese melts.
  • While the burgers are in the oven, prepare the guacamole: Mash the avocado in a bowl. Add the rest of the guacamole ingredients, and mix well.
  • Assemble your burger! Don't forget to toast the bun :)


The nutritional data estimated for this recipe is for 1 burger patty and guacamole, not including the bun or other toppings.
