IMG_3379This is the ultimate gluten-free flourless turkey burger recipe that will make you want to party! Easy to prepare in advance, refrigerate the mixture and cook later in time for dinner. You may also freeze the leftover patties cooked or raw.  You might be tempted to skip the oil in the mixture, however, it is needed to hold the form and allow the onions to ‘fry’ inside the patty. Olive oil is an important and necessary fat for after gastric bypass and weight loss surgery.

  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons hot water

Flip to the other side. Top with salsa and then cheese.


Place a large pot lid directly over the patty, inside of the frying pan.

Cook for another 5-7 minutes until cheese is thoroughly melted.
Serve immediately.
