Tasty and Easy to make – these Turkey Burgers are one of my “go-to” meal prep recipes. Feel  free to modify spices/herbs to find what tastes best for you (e.g. more spicy, less garlic….) and let me know what variations you come up with!

N.B. If you have specific macro goals you may need to adjust the quantities or number of servings to better suit your targets. For example:

  • More Turkey/Fewer Patties for higher protein
  • More  Potatoes for higher Carbs, and/or
  • Less Oil for lower fat

And if you are tracking, make sure you include any condiments used when logging your meal in MyFitnessPal (or wherever you track your food)
