Keto Turkey Burgers

(from maggiwun’s recipe box)


  • 3 tbsp Avocado oil (plus more for frying)
  • 1 tbsp Coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp Crushed chipotle chile pepper (or less if you don’t want much heat)
  • 1 tsp Smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Dried oregano
  • 1 tbsp Fresh cilantro
  • 1 tsp Sea salt
  • 1 lb Ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp Chipotle chile powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (204 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. (Grease if using foil.)

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the avocado oil, coconut aminos, chile peppers, smoked paprika, cumin, oregano, cilantro, and sea salt.

  3. Add the ground turkey. Stir or mix with your hands until just combined. Do not over mix to avoid tough burgers.

  4. Divide the burger meat into 4 sections and form a burger patty with each. Place onto the lined baking sheet. Make a thumbprint in each.

  5. Cook burgers using your favorite method:

  6. In The Oven: Bake turkey burgers in the oven for 16-18 minutes until almost cooked through, then broil for 2-3 minutes until browned and fully cooked.

  7. Pan Fry: Cook turkey burgers on the stove over medium high heat for 4 to 5 minutes per side.

  8. Grill: Grill turkey burgers over medium high heat for 3 to 4 minutes per side.

  9. With any of these methods, let burgers rest for 5 minutes on a plate after cooking.

  10. Meanwhile, whisk together the mayo and chipotle chile powder to make chipotle mayo.

  11. Serve burgers with chipotle mayo, avocado, fresh cilantro, and homemade salsa.
