Sunday Funday Dinner – Paleo Turkey Burgers

I’m posting this meal at my own risk because when Rob finds out I made turkey burgers and he didn’t get to try them there’s a very real possibility he’ll kill me in my sleep!  This recipe is from the Paleoista cookbook and they’re down right delicious (don’t worry baby I’ll make them again for you)!  Chopped roma tomato

1 pound ground turkey

2 Roma tomatoes

Freshly ground black pepper

Garlic powder

2 romaine lettuce hearts, chopped, rinsed and spun dry

1 cup arugula rinsed, spun dry and loosely packed

1 cup fresh blueberries

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 1/2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

2 thick slices of beefsteak tomato

1/4 small red onion, peeled and thinly sliced

1 small avocado pitted, peeled and sliced

Raw turkey burger patties in ovenPreheat the broiler.

Place turkey in a bowl and mix in the chopped tomato with your hands.  Shape the meat into two large patties, season with pepper and garlic powder to taste, and place on a wire rack over a baking sheet.  Place under the broiler and cook 10 to 15 minutes, flipping over halfway through.

Meanwhile, combine the romaine, arugula, and blueberries with the oil, and lemon juice in a big bowl.  Place an even portion on each of two plates.

Place one burger on top of each salad, followed by a slice of tomato and half each of the onion and avocado.

This is a super quick and easy recipe and it is SO yummy!  Perfect for a lazy Sunday night or a time strapped week night.  Prep and cleanup are minimal.  I really enjoyed this one and I hope you will too!  Happy cooking!
