Gluten Free Mini Turkey Burgers

Lately I've been trying to create a lot more paleo and gluten-free meals that are filling and long lasting. You might be the type of person that likes a big juicy burger or you might not be. As much as I'd love to have a big burger like that, I'd much rather have a couple of these smaller burgers to control how much I should really eat. Don't worry, they still taste just as good as any other burger!

In case you don't know, turkey burgers are actually a lot healthier and leaner then the burgers made with beef. A lot of people that haven't made turkey burgers probably think that their is a difference in taste but really there isn't. With the smaller size burgers and the leaner cut meat, this can be perfect for an after workout meal or for when you just need something quick to eat.

Since this is natural and gluten-free, I couldn't like this recipe more. They are extremely simple to make and need very few ingredients for a lot of flavor. If you have hands and know how to work an oven, then you can make these burgers just as good as anyone! Also, they can easily be put in the fridge then heated up later for one minute. I always eat these after my workouts and they are great. Hope you like them!

Ingredients:
Makes 18-24 burgers
Broil for 10-15 minutes on high
Place pan on 2nd rack to the top

Directions:
  1. Take a large pan and line with foil, set aside for later. (You may need 2 pans if 1 isn't big enough)
  2. In a medium bowl mix all the ingredients together until combined well.
  3. Take the raw meat with your hands and create 2-3 inch balls. Place them in the pan and flatten until about 1 inch high. (Don't worry about the burgers touching, they don't spread)
  4. Put on the 2nd highest rack and Broil on high for 10-15 minutes depending on how you like your burgers. Take out and enjoy!

I wonder if we can make veg burgers with boiled-mashed-lentils, veggies & some chick pea flour. Would be interesting, no?

That would be! I would just wonder if it would hold together well. Sounds yummy though!

Will give it a shot, and let you know how it goes. I'm sure it can be tweaked to hold together. Chickpea flour crepes are awesome, so i'm hoping the burgers will be too. :)
