Turkey Burger Deluxe {high Protein, Low Carb}

By Fitfulfocus @fitfulfocus

Burgers. What can I say about them except, “YUM!” The best kind of burgers are, hands down, homemade ones. They’re juicy without the grease, and simply put, they’re just plain yummy! This Turkey Burger Deluxe is no exception:

This is the best turkey burger I’ve ever had. As a matter of fact, I’ve never had a turkey burger from a restaurant that I enjoyed. Maybe I just haven’t been to a good turkey burger joint (I was a vegetarian for 2 years so that’s not out of the question), but this bad boy is delicious.

When I make burgers at home, I can control the size, seasoning, level of cookage (yep – that is now a word – you’re welcome Merriam Webster), and I can add scrumdiddlyumptious toppings like tomatoes, homemade guac, and turkey bacon hitherto turning the Joe Shmoe Turkey Burger into the Turkey Burger Deluxe!

This burger is so good, it doesn’t even need a bun! Just throw it in between two crunchy Romaine lettuce leaves and you’re good to go, you healthy thing you. 

WARNING: You will need many a napkin during the consumption phase. 

Stop, it's burger time! I'm drooling over this #protein rich, #lowcarb, Turkey Burger Deluxe!
