This Easy Gluten-Free Turkey Burger Recipe is perfect to have in your back pocket for a yummy weeknight meal.
I love how you can cook these gluten-free turkey burgers in the oven too. Broiler to the rescue!😄
Super helpful when you don’t have a BBQ handy! We’re renovating our deck and our BBQ gave up after 10+ years of delicious service last year.
We’re waiting till the upper deck is done so we have somewhere to put the next BBQ.
Until then, these gluten-free ground turkey burgers are just perfect for cooking in the oven.
You could also cook them on the stovetop too on a grill pan.
Here’s what you’ll need to make these Easy Gluten-Free Ground Turkey Burgers:
- Ground turkey – about 1 lb (0.5kg)
- Gluten-free oats
Homemade BBQ sauce:
- Worcestershire sauce
- Red pepper flakes (if you like it hot like me🥵)
- Fresh ground pepper
A recipe like this one for Easy Gluten-Free Ground Turkey Burgers is perfect anytime you need supper on the table ASAP
What should I serve with these turkey burgers?
Personally, I like eating the burger on it’s own with a salad – like my Strawberry Cucumber Salad with Mint in the picture below.
You can of course serve them on little gluten-free buns with all your favourite burger fixings😋
Can I use ground beef instead of ground turkey?
Yes! You definitely can substitute ground beef for the ground turkey.
Oooo! Too hot for me with red pepper flakes! Can I leave them out?
Yep! If you don’t need the heat KICK, don’t add the crushed red peppers. If you like more heat, then go crazy😄
Can I freeze these turkey burgers?
Yes, you can freeze these turkey burgers. Just make them as the recipe says but instead of cooking them, freeze them between sheets of parchment paper and wrapped in plastic for up to 1 month. Thaw overnight in the fridge before cooking frozen patties.
I’ve got leftover ground turkey! What else can I make?
Here’s a few ideas:
- Make an extra batch of these gluten-free turkey burgers and freeze them!
- Turkey Tacos!
- Ground Turkey in Tomato Sauce with Gluten-Free Pasta
- Easy Weeknight Ground Turkey Soup
