Cheesy Buffalo Turkey Burgers (Keto & Gluten Free)

Grilling season is here! But I personally think that grilling season goes beyond grilling food and more about the memories you create while sharing a very summery vibed recipe in the outdoors. These Cheesy Buffalo Turkey Burgers are perfect whether you grilling them, cooking them in the pan or in the oven!


When it comes to summer gatherings there are a few list of foods that pop into my mind; burgers, carne asada, ribs and some refreshing drinks such as lemonades. If you are dreaming or you are already in the mood for summer then you are going to love this recipe, perfect to share and cook for yourself of loved ones.



About these Cheesy Buffalo Turkey Burgers:

Okay, this took me legit like fifteen minutes to prepare! These burgers are super easy to make and they don't require a lot of time to be ready. Perfect to feed your summer gang, or to meal prep, with all the flavor we love! Buffalo and cheese... simply epic!


These are gluten free and low carb, no flour but instead we are using pork panko or crushed pork rinds and for cheese we are using mozzarella, you can also use Panela Mexican cheese too! This is adds a great flavor to this recipe plus some vitamin D, and calcium from the cheese, double win!


The key to a delicious burger is of course the ingredients, and the preparation! Who doesn't love a good juicy burger right? And something cooking ground meat can be tricky and can get a bt dry but these burgers are juicy juicy juicy!



What's in these Cheesy Buffalo Turkey Burgers?

Well, besides the cheese and ground meat we are adding our pork panko and some egg whites to help with the consistency of these burgers, which is very soft! Plus we are adding our seasonings as well along with some red onions too.


A turkey is great protein option to add into your lifestyle! As a nutritionist I know that healthy eating should be sustainable and convenient without sacrificing any taste. Turkey meat is loaded with protein, tryptophan, an amino acids that helps with the production of melatonin (sleeping hormone) and it's super fun to cook with!



Turkey is super versatile; these burgers for example, these other of my own recipes:




Overall, these are the ingredients needed for these Cheesy Buffalo Turkey Burgers:

  • Lean Ground Turkey

  • Mozzarella

  • Crushed Pork Rind

  • Eggs

  • Buffalo Hot Sauce

  • Red Onion

  • Black Pepper

  • Real Salt

  • Garlic

Bunless or not these still rock! Don't get me wrong, I don't have anything against buns but I find it extra fresh when it come in a lettuce wrap, so watery and juicier from my own personal perspective... but if you are looking for a low carb bun I recommend 10/10 Smart Baking Company, their buns are legitimate (purely_healthy_living for discount).


And for spices, adding real salt, pepper and garlic really amps up any taste and aroma to the recipes; a must and another sneaky way to get some micronutrients such as minerals from the sea salt.



The full instructions and ingredient list is listed below. This is just a super easy and flavorful recipe for you to enjoy and your body will love; source of fiber, nutrients and flavor!
