Quick and Easy Tarragon Turkey Burgers (AIP)

Print

I love my standby breakfast of Chicken Apple Sausages. But, these quick and easy Tarragon Turkey Burgers use the fresh tarragon growing in my garden. They are also easy to freeze. I also try to diversify the meat I am using for my food dishes. Red meat can have such a distinct taste, that it competes with other subtle flavors in a dish. That is when I opt for ground free range turkey or chicken instead. It balances the delicate flavors of fresh herbs extremely well and can lighten up a dish.

Tarragon has a great anise flavoring. I eat these for both lunch and breakfast. I put them in my daughters lunch. They would be great crumbled in a soup or made into meatballs for a slow cooker recipe.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Tarragon has been used to stimulate the appetite and relieve flatulence. This recipe uses a great amount of tarragon. Beware of not overusing the amount of tarragon and not cooking it too long because it brings out the bitter side of the food product. This tasty recipe adds delicious flavor to your turkey burgers!

Quick and Easy Tarragon Turkey Burgers (AIP)

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Servings: 7

Ingredients

1 pound ground turkey
1 heaping tablespoon fresh tarragon chopped
½ onion finely chopped
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons coconut aminos
pinch salt

Instructions

1. In a bowl, mix all the ingredients with clean hands. Form into 3 inch sized flat patties and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
2. Cook in a 350 degree oven until turkey reaches an internal temperature of 160-170 degrees (about 20-25 minutes).

Note: I use an oven safe thermometer so that when they reach 170 I take them right out. You may notice that I cook them until 170 even though the USDA says 160 degrees is safe. I tend to be a little conservative about internal cooking temperatures. Drives my friends a little crazy. Overcooked turkey is very dry however, so I use the thermometer.
