Who needs buns!? There was never enough lettuce on burgers to begin with and buns just take up room in your mouth where amazing juicy burgers should be! Lettuce wrapping has rocked my world…

Sautee Stuffed Turkey Burgers
5 servings @ 140 cal/ea. — 25 minutes

1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
1 small onion
1/2 red bell pepper
1 lb ground turkey
1 tsp basil
1 tbsp oregano
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Chili Powder
2 tbsp chopped garlic

Chop and Sautee mushrooms, onion and red bell pepper with one tbps of garlic in medium skillet.

Set to the side, and in a large bowl mix basil, cumin, chili, and rest of garlic with the ground turkey (by hand – we love getting messy! And touching raw meat!)

Separate turkey and patty-cake each one into 10 medium-thin patties.

Evenly dish the sautéed veggies onto 5 of the patty-cake-patties, then cover with another patty-cake-patty and pinch the edges while lightly smooshing them together.

Cook turkey burgers in skillet or on grill as you normally would – checking to make sure it’s cooked through completely before calling it quits.

Wrap your burger up in the largest lettuce leaves you can find, giving it some nice burger veggie accessories, and topping it off with some paleo grilled tomato sauce, hot sauce, or paleo ranch dressing! (Mmmmmm)
