Knife-and-Fork Chili Turkey Burgers

Rachel brought these outrageously different burgers to me one afternoon while I was hard at work on this book. Turkey is an especially lean meat, so you really have to add some moisture to it; Rachel's done that here by using veggies. She made a lot of these, like we always do, to be sure we have leftovers -- and I couldn't stop eating them for the next two days! Now, five years after we were introduced to eating low-carb, I've all but forgotten that burgers once came with a bun!

Ingredients

Burgers:

Garnish:

Quick and Easy Sugar-Free Ketchup:

Directions

  1. Make the Burgers: Mix all the ingredients together with your hands, except the oil, in a bowl. 
  2. Divide the meat mixture into 10 equal-sized patties. 
  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, cook the burgers, turning once, until lightly browned and cooked through, about 7 minutes per side. (An instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of the thickest burger should read at least 165 degrees F.) 
  4. Divide the burgers among plates--2 to a plate. Dollop each serving with mayonnaise and stack lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickle on top.
