Happy Monday, meal preppers! This week I’m bringing you a fun meal to prep using your air fryer – a juicy Bacon Turkey Burger. I served mine up with plenty of pickled red onions and guac inside a lettuce wrap, plus some corn on the cob on the side. It makes for quite the tasty meal. 10/10 would recommend.
The great thing about adding bacon to a turkey burger is that the burger overall stays pretty lean, but the bacon adds a ton of flavor and adds a certain juiciness that turkey burgers can lack. If you want something even juicier, use 93/7 or 90/10 ground turkey instead of extra lean. Either way, you really can’t go wrong! Enjoy!
