I am a huge burger fan! Especially Friday night burgers. There’s something special about celebrating the weekend with a big fat juicy burger, am I right?

I’ve been making a lot of turkey and chicken dishes lately because my husband isn’t eating pork or beef at the moment, and have been super craving a giant, juicy, beef burger. So with that crave in mind, I built this epic low carb turkey burger with all the typical beef burger trimmings.. Delicious!

I’ve made these beauties several times now because they are just so dang good! I hope you love them too 🙂

What is in these Low Carb Turkey Burgers?

This Low Carb Turkey Burger has a patty made of ground turkey, almond flour, onion, garlic, bbq sauce, egg, salt and pepper. I like to use 90 Second Keto Breads for these yummy burgers but they would be great without the buns too.

The trimmings are up to you, but if it were me, I would definitely have mayo, mustard, bbq sauce, cheddar cheese, crisp bacon and lettuce. Yum!

Low Carb Turkey Burger recipe

These Low Carb Turkey Burgers are super easy to make!

Heat oven to 375°. Dice up some onion and mince a couple of cloves of garlic. In a medium bowl add ground turkey, onion, garlic, an egg, Low Carb BBQ Sauce, sea salt, ground black pepper and almond flour.

Line a baking sheet with a non stick baking mat or parchment paper. Mix the burgers well then shape into four patties and place each evenly on the baking sheet. Bake the burgers with additional Low Carb BBQ Sauce until the internal temperature reaches 165°.

Five minutes before the burgers are fully cooked, make the 90 Second Keto Breads and prep the other choice ingredients.

Build the burgers with your choice of spreads, sauces and other optional toppings!

Low Carb BBQ Sauce

I swear bbq sauce is my worst enemy.. because it is sooo delicious! Am I right? I love the stuff. Can’t get enough. No way could I live my life without BBQ sauce. The biggest problem I face is that I am incredibly picky. My favourite is a beautifully smokey sauce that has an intense flavour yet not super spicy. Throw that in with the whole no sugar thing? Yeah, good luck finding a yummy BBQ sauce, right?

So I made my own.

This Low Carb BBQ Sauce is smokey, intense, mildly spicy and super easy to make! I use sukrin gold to sweeten the sauce which doesn’t have any nasty aftertaste.

Low Carb Bun Options

90 Second Keto Bread

This is definitely one of my favourite recipes. Life got a whole lot easier once I built this 90 Second Keto Bread. Now I can have a burger or sandwich in minutes without caving and eating something I shouldn’t!

Low Carb Onion Buns

Packed with flavour, these Low Carb Onion Buns take a little longer than the 90 Second Keto Breads, but are worth it if you’ve got the time!

Low Carb Everything Bagels

These Low Carb Everything Bagels are excellent for sandwiches, especially these turkey burgers!

    What great tips for making this low-carb. I would have just eliminated the buns (which I love) to keep it lower in carbs but now I don’t have to do that. The turkey also keeps it lower in calories and with all the goodies you have on it I don’t think I’ll miss the high sugar condiments.

  11. We are super into burger night at my house and I love having a few good turkey burger recipes to switch things up with. I love that you use a good bbq sauce in this recipe for extra flavor!

  12. Wow, you make this whole low-carb deal look positively delicious! I can’t wait to make these when we finally get a chance to pull out the grill!


  13. Your pictures are gorgeous and so does these burgers, BBQ season is approaching and many would love to grill these burgers, love the idea of using low carb bbq sauce.
