Sheet Pan Dinner, Turkey Burger with Crispy Kale (Keto, Whole30, Paleo)
I’ve seriously lost count on how many turkey burger recipes I have on the blog. That sounds so boring, but if you have made any of my turkey burgers… you know they are NOT boring. This turkey burger sheet pan dinner is way more than JUST a turkey burger… these are LEMON BLUEBERRY turkey burgers. Stay with me! They’re savory and juicy and keto, paleo and Whole30.
Sheet Pan Dinner
Best of all, it’s a sheet pan meal! Heck yes! Which means that there is minimal dishwashing and everything is done at the same time. Because I like to make two pounds worth of turkey burgers I use two sheet pans. One for the veggies, a mix of brussel sprouts and kale that roasts up to crispy perfections and one for my massive turkey burgers!
I’m going to talk about my book for a second here, well because … I wrote a freaking book and I only announced a week ago AND we already changed the cover once… due to some font issues. But I am still super excited about this book. It has over 150 recipes. All dairy, nut, and nightshade free. All of them are low carb/keto, paleo and many are AIP compliant or with AIP mods. We have a lot of egg-free and coconut free options too!
Please check it out on Amazon! If you pre-order now you will have it in your hands July 17th. Also, email me your pre-order confirmation to email@example.com and I will send you my 35 recipe e-book, free!
