Black Bean Turkey Burgers

I’m getting ready to review another wonderful and fun Gooseberry Patch cookbook called Grilling and Campfire Cooking (affiliate link) and this is one of the recipes I’ll be sharing with you from it.

Black Bean Turkey Burgers

I’m always on the lookout for a new burger recipe. You know, something to kick it up a notch and make it different. Well this recipe was a hit with the whole family.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.


Black Bean Turkey Burgers

1-1/4 lbs. ground turkeyIMG_6693

3/4 c. canned black beans, drained, rinsed and lightly mashed

1 c. tortilla chips, crushed

1 T. chili powder

1 T. ground cumin

salt and pepper to taste

6 hamburger buns, split

In a large bowl, combine turkey, beans, tortilla chips and seasonings. Mix well with your hands and form into 6 patties. Grill over medium-high heat for 6 to 8 minutes per side. Serve burgers on buns, topped with a scoop of Avocado & Onion Slaw. Makes 6 servings.

Avocado & Onion Slaw

3 T. mayonaisseIMG_6690

1 T. vinegar

1/4 t. salt

1 avocado, halved, pitted and cubed

1/2 c. onion, thinly sliced

Mix together mayonnaise, vinegar and salt until well combined. Stir in avocado and onion.

I used our George Foreman grill to cook these and they came out really juicy and yummy. We also opted out of using buns since we are gluten free and all but I think you can taste the burgers and the slaw that much more because of it. *smile*


You can find this recipe on page 53 of the Grilling and Campfire Cooking cookbook (affiliate link).

  1. The Black Bean Turkey Burgers will have to await a trip to the grocery store but I have everything for the Avocado and Onion Slaw so it is on the menu for today! Sounds really good.


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
