Gluten-free Turkey Zucchini Burgers – juicy, healthy and good for you!
I can never say no to a good juicy burger. As a kid, my dad would always make both beef and turkey burgers when he BBQ’d, and I also went for the turkey version. To me, turkey burgers reign over all. They are moist and have a hint of poultry flavour that combines with so many yummy toppings.
Here is the updated “adult” version of my usual turkey burger. Gluten-free and loaded with extra nutrients from the zucchini that nobody ill even notice is there.
Serve it on a gluten-free or lettuce bun. Enjoy with any toppings of your choosing! I even freeze these individually and warm them up in the microwave or oven for an easy go-to dinner!
