You know I LOVE me some turkey burgers so I whipped up some with a Thai twist that will knock your socks off!  You gotta try these Whole 30 Turkey Burgers Thai Style! I love using ground turkey in burgers and meatballs because it’s affordable, absorbs lots of flavors and is a great lean protein I can have for any meal! My turkey recipes on this site really are endless from my Tomato Basil Turkey Meatloaf to Curried Turkey Sloppy Joes in Sweet Potato Bowls! That’s why I am so PUMPED to be partnering with the National Turkey Federation to promote the wonders of turkey!!  It is a total staple in our house and we get about 2 pounds a week to have on hand.  As some of you know, Matt has been in fire academy for the last 10 weeks (graduated yesterday!!!) and we needed to pack him lots of protein for his meals while he was there.  Some days we got fancy something like our Asian Turkey Meatballs, but when things got busy we just cooked up ground turkey in a pan with some spices and it was still so delish!

That is the beautiful thing about turkey – versatility and ease!  I have also noticed that lots of stores I shop at – like Trader Joes or Ralphs, have been coming out with new types of cuts of meat like turkey.  I have seen turkey breasts, cutlets and tenderloin which is amazing for someone who cooks a lot and likes to switch it up!  Now onto this burger – let’s talk sauce!

Sauces makes my world go round so for this baby I made a quick little almond butter based sauce to drizzle all over the patty and add even more flavor and texture.  And speaking texture – slaw to the rescue!  A quick slaw comes together to balance out everything with a dash of vinegar flavor which I live for.  Then I did a cabbage lettuce wrap to keep it extra clean and grain-free- the PERFECT Whole 30 Turkey Burger!


That sauce though!! It is perfect on these Whole30 Turkey Burgers!
