Who needs a bun when you have all the fabulous trimmings of a great burger? We made our burgers extra big, so you can eat them like a steak and enjoy all the flavors of an avocado-and-bacon burger!

Top-Class Toppings

It isn’t just the burger that makes people fall in love. So much of the delight in eating a burger is the symphony of toppings that go with it.

This paleo turkey burger recipe suggests some of the best in the burger business. Crisp, crunchy lettuce, flavorful bacon, creamy avocado and mayo, and fresh garden tomatoes offer delicious companions to your burger.

But the fun thing about building a burger is that there are a ton of toppings you can select to make the burger your own – even while following a paleo diet.

Here are some other ideas you might want to try.

  • Pickles
  • Paleo ketchup
  • Fried egg
  • Pesto
  • Raw or jammy onions
  • Mushrooms
  • Salsa
  • Jalepenos

On the Side

These juicy turkey burgers demand an equally delicious side dish. Of course, you can always go the salad route, but here are some other ideas you might enjoy.
