  • 2 Lbs Ground Turkey
  • 2 Whole Yellow Onions sliced
  • 2 Tsp Smoked sea salt
  • 2 Tsp Ancho Chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Adobo seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp Zach Bruell Pepper Sauce
  • 3 Ounces Fresh parsley rough chopped
  • 5 Slices Cheddar cheese
  • 5 Slices Smoked gouda
  • 1 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp Butter


  1. Combine all ingredients through the parsley and form into 5 hamburger patties.

    Heat a cast iron skillet on medium heat.  Add the oil and the butter, and once hot, add the turkey burgers and the onions.  Cook for 5 - 6 minutes per side mixing the onions around.  Once the burgers are cooked, alternately top each patty with either the smoked gouda or the cheddar cheese.  Let rest for a minute.

    To finish the burger, use your favorite gluten free bun.   Add a piece of lettuce.  Stack the burgers (We ate only one burger at a time) and top with as much of the onions as you will enjoy.  I added BBQ sauce and pickles.  Now that is a burger.

    Serve and enjou.
