Apple and Spice Turkey Burger


30 minutes

4 servings


I love that this burger recipe runs on the sweeter side, rather than savory. Try using different toppings like avocado, pickles, or applesauce, if you are avoiding tomatoes (nightshade family). Phase One-Repair

Apple and Spice Turkey Burger


  • 1 pound(s) free range or organic ground turkey or chicken

  • 1 apple (will peel and shred)

  • 1 teaspoon(s) cinnamon

  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) nutmeg

  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) unrefined sea salt

  • 1 tablespoon(s) fresh chopped parsley

  • 1 tablespoon(s) organic coconut oil

  • 1 cup(s) unsweetened apple sauce (optional)


1. Peel and shred the apple, either finely chop with a knife, or in the food processor on the shredding blade. Place a paper towel over the apple to squeeze out the excess water.

2. Mix together all the ingredients until well incorporated. Form into 3-4 even, tightly packed balls (depending on the size you want your patty). Note: they may seem a little wet from the apple, but the moisture will cook off.

3. Heat coconut oil in stainless steel, or cast-iron skillet,  until melted on medium-high heat, or use a non-stick (not Teflon) griddle. Sear burgers on one side, then flip after 1-2 minutes and sear on the other side for 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking for about 15 minutes, or until they are no longer pink in the middle.

4. Top with unsweetened homemade, or unsweetened store bought apple sauce. Enjoy with Golden Beet with Apple Mash, or Cucumber Salad. Eat without a bun or bread. Enjoy!
