We love our recipe for healthy turkey burgers because they are so versatile! Add to a zesty, keto chili, or chop up and top a crisp green salad or just enjoy them alone with your favorite low carb dipping sauce. Ground turkey is a low carb lover’s dream. This easy recipe only has a few ingredients, some savory seasonings, and best of all, they’re cooked in an air fryer for less fat and less mess. We added chopped mushrooms to add to the flavor profile, but you could add chopped zucchini, or even bell peppers for a little extra nutrition boost!

ingredients to make Easy Turkey Burgers

How To Make Ground Turkey Burgers

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
  2. Form into patties and press your thumb into the center of each patty.
  3. For best results, place them on a plate and refrigerate for 30 minutes so they firm up before frying.

How to Cook Burgers in an Air Fryer

  1. Place chilled patties in air fryer basket with enough space between them so the hot air can circulate equally around them.
  2. Cook in batches, if necessary. Keep cooked patties warm in the oven, if desired.

How Long To Cook Turkey Burgers In Air Fryer

  1. Air fry patties for 6 minutes on one side and then turn them over and cook another 6 to 8 minutes.
  2. Check temperature with a meat thermometer. Poultry should be at 165°F.
  3. Serve on buns with preferred toppings.
  • Low carb condiments include mayonnaise, mustard, horseradish, chili sauce, salsa, and avocado dip.
  • Toppings include onions, cheese, tomato, lettuce, bacon, or a fried egg!

Recipe Tips & Tricks

  • For a no-bun option, wrap turkey burgers in a large leaf of bibb lettuce, romaine or iceberg lettuce.
  • Always start with a preheated air fryer so the outside of the burgers can crisp up as soon as the heat hits it, this helps seal in the juices.
  • Indenting the burgers in the center ensures that they cook evenly.

    Very tasty. Love them. I tried them on my 11 yr old granddaughter who’s a very picky eater and she loved them. Gave her mom the recipe.
