Low-Carb Bacon Onion Balsamic Turkey Burger

I am so excited to be partnering with Jennie-O to bring you this post for a healthy new year.  Jennie-O creates quality, affordable products and I hope you will join me in supporting the brands that help Blonde Girl Cravings operate!

It’s summertime, and that means burgers! If you are like me though, you are trying to watch what you eat and are giving this low-carb thing a try. Jenni-O Seasoned Turkey Burgers are perfect for a low-carb diet! Individually wrapped so you can grab as many as you need, and done cooking in just a few minutes, they are the perfect solution for a quick dinner or lunch.

I chose to go bun-less for this burger and serve on a bed of lettuce, but I know it would be delicious on a toasted sesame seed bun!

This recipe sounds complicated, but the ingredient list is small and everything comes together in just minutes.

A delicously flavorful mayo, topped with caramelized onions and bacon with balsamic makes for a burger nice enough for company, but simple enough for a weeknight. Happy eating!
