Fully Loaded-Lettuce Wrapped Turkey Bacon Burgers

Fully Loaded-Lettuce Wrapped Turkey Bacon Burgers

When it comes to quick, guilt-free dinners it doesn’t get better than this. These Fully Loaded-Lettuce Wrapped-Turkey Bacon Burgers only take about 35 minutes to prepare, and taste like a naughty, cheat meal.

Once I got into the habit of ditching the bun from my burger and instead using large lettuce leaves, I don’t even miss it. Try it and I’m sure you’ll see that it’s a pretty painless way to cut the carbs, grain and gluten from your life. I use a head of Living Butter Lettuce. It has wonderful sized leaves and it stays fresh since it’s packed with the roots still intact. Pretty awesome.

Yields6 Servings

 8 strips nitrate free bacon
 ½ yellow onion, sliced
  cup blanched almond flour
 1 lb organic ground turkey
 2 tsp balsamic glaze
 1 tsp tomato paste
 ¼ tsp smoked paprika
 ½ tsp garlic powder
  red bell pepper minced
 1 tbsp fresh chives chopped
 3 Large lettuce leaves
 1 organic tomato

1

Set the oven to 180 degrees C. Line a baking sheet with foil and place a metal cooling rack in the center. Arrange the bacon pieces on the rack and bake for 20 minutes, or until crispy. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

2

Grill the sliced onion in a grill pan over medium high heat with a few drops of olive oil. Grill until tender and caramelized. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

3

Chop 6 of the bacon strips and place in a medium bowl. Chop 1/4 cup of the grilled onions and add to the bowl. Add the almond flour, turkey, balsamic glaze, tomato paste, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, bell peppers and chives to the bowl. Mix well with your hands — it’s OK to get messy here! Form into 6 patties.

4

Place the patties on your grill pan over medium high heat for about 4 minutes per side, until cooked through.

Serve your Fully Loaded-Lettuce Wrapped-Turkey Bacon Burgers on large lettuce leaves and topped with sliced tomato and the extra grilled onions and bacon pieces.
