Turkey Burger in a Bowl

An original recipe by Drew Parisi of Parisi Nutrition


1 pound ground turkey

1/2 red onion, diced

2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley

1 egg (this adds a little moisture - If you're sensitive to eggs, simply leave it out.)

1 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon hot sauce

Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Additional veggies and add-ins (see step 2)


  1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Shape into uniformly sized patties, and grill over medium-high heat until thoroughly cooked. (Sometimes I just cook them in a pan on my stove when I don't feel like doing the whole grill thing.)
  2. Serve over a bed of lettuce and top with plenty of vegetables like grilled onions, sliced tomatoes, dill pickles, cucumbers, sprouts, avocado, jalapeño, etc. Be creative! You can even sprinkle with a bit of goat cheese or good cheddar, and top with a runny egg.    

Serves 4.

P.S. This is a great meal for leftovers! Double or triple the recipe to take burgers as lunches during the week, or nibble on a burger and some vegetables as part of a balanced snack. You can freeze the patties for up to 3 months.
