Bunless Turkey Burger

When the BBQ season was at its peak, I had to come up with a flavorful burger recipe. I opted for a bunless burger since I try to avoid wheat as much as possible. The challenge was to find a way to make my burgers more filling so I don't need to eat a lot of patties to feel full. I am not a fan of poached eggs with meat so I opted to top my burgers with guacamole instead.  Turned out that the turkey burger and the guacamole are a perfect match!  These bunless burgers are absolutely delicious. Whether you grill them or cook them on the stove, they remain very flavourful.

Give it a try and let us know what you think; we would love to have your input. Please leave your comment below. You can also take a picture and share your bunless turkey burger on Instagram. If you do, don’t forget to tag @vic.r_c so we can see what you came up with.

Thanks and Enjoy!
