Juicy Low FODMAP Turkey Burgers (Paleo, Whole30)

  • Author: Gail
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4


Super flavorful and easy to make, these juicy low FODMAP turkey burgers make a quick and healthy main for lunch or dinner. They're also Paleo and Whole30 friendly using a Paleo/Whole30 compliant bun alternative (see my notes for lots of options!).


Units Scale
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon garlic-infused olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon dried chives
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon avocado oil (for the pan if not using non-stick)
  • 4 buns (see notes for options)
  • Your favorite burger toppings (see notes for options)


  1. Add ground turkey, egg, garlic-infused olive oil, coconut aminos, parsley, chives, salt, and pepper to a large bowl and mix with your hands or a spoon until just combined.
  2. Using your hands, shape turkey mixture into 4 patties with your hands and place on a large plate. The patties should each be about about 3.5-inches in diameter and about 1-inch thick. Stick the plate of burger patties in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  3. Place a large skillet on medium heat and add the avocado oil (if using). Once hot, add the burger patties and sear on each side for 4-5 minutes or until they reach 165°F per an instant read thermometer.
  4. Remove from heat, serve on a bun (or bun alternative) with your favorite toppings, like my Low FODMAP Ketchup (Paleo but not Whole30), and sides, like my Low FODMAP Air Fryer French Fries (Paleo & Whole30) or Low FODMAP Broccoli Salad with Bacon (Paleo & Whole30).
