Mediterranean Inspired Turkey Burgers

Mediterranean Inspired Turkey Burgers

These Mediterranean inspired turkey burgers are juicy, refreshing, and packed with so much flavor you’ll find it hard to believe they're low FODMAP!

Turkey often gets a bad rap but is a great source of lean protein. When compared to beef, it is lower in saturated fat which is great for our heart health, and is also lower in calories if you're interested in weight loss. 

These patties are also great on their own with a Greek side salad or perhaps tossed through your favorite pasta sauce. Either way, we can promise you won't be disappointed!
