  • 1 pound ground turkey (I like 94%)
  • 1 shallot, finely grated
  • 1 garlic clove, finely grated
  • 2 tablespoons seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • splash of worcesteshire sauce
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • 4 to 6 buns of your choice
  • lettuce for your burgers
  • quick pickled onions
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 1 handful cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • ½ lime, juiced
  • pinch of salt


  • Place the ground turkey in a bowl. Grate in the shallot and the garlic. Add in the bread crumbs, paprika, cumin, salt and pepper. Splash in a drop or so of Worcestershire sauce. Add the beaten egg white and mix everything together (it works best if you use clean hands!) until combined, but don’t over mix. Form the mixture into 4 or 6 patties (or however many you’d like!).
  • Heat a skillet over medium heat and add a drop of olive oil. Add the burgers and cook until they are brown on the outsides, about 5 minutes per side. To make sure the burgers don’t dry out, you can check the internal temperature – you want it to be about 175 to 180. I let the burgers rest for 10 minutes before eating.
  • To make the quick guac, chopped the avocado into chunks. I like to take half of this and smash it with a fork, and keep the rest cubed for a chunky guac. Do it however you love! Mix in the tomatoes, cilantro, lime and salt.
  • Place your lettuce on the bun and add the burger on top. Top with a few scoops of the guacamole. You can also top with some pickled onions if you’d like! Serve immediately.
