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 I have been super craving a giant, juicy, beef burger.

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°. While the burgers are baking, make your low carb buns of choice.

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

Expert Tips

  1. Dice the onion up super small and if you prefer, use a garlic press instead of mincing the garlic.
  2. Make sure to wash your hands thoroughly after forming the patties, to avoid contamination.
  3. If you like melted cheese, add sliced cheese to the tops of the turkey burgers a minute or two before the keto turkey burgers have finished baking.
  4. Use a digital meat thermometer to ensure the burgers are fully cooked to 165°.
  5. Want to save even more carbs? Make these keto turkey burgers using lettuce instead of low carb buns.
One burger fully made, the other burger has the turkey burger patty, aged cheddar, bacon and onion.

    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!
