  • Grill Pan or Skillet Pan


For the Burgers:

  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 fresh zucchini shredded
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper


  • 4 100% whole wheat buns or buns of your choice
  • 4 tbsp sugar-free BBQ sauce
  • 4 rings pineapple fresh or canned
  • pickles "Grillos" brand are my favorite
  • butter lettuce leaves


  • In a large bowl, mix ground turkey, shredded zucchini, and seasonings using your hands or a spoon. Note: You have the option to squeeze excess water from zucchini, but I chose to leave it in for extra moisture.
  • Portion your burgers into 4-6 patties. Cook in a grill pan (or skillet pan) with some olive oil on medium-high heat for about 2-3 minutes per side. The patties should look golden brown and caramelized on each side.
  • While or after your patties are cooking, grill your pineapple. You have the option to grill on a patio grill, a grill pan for the stove, or even just a skillet pan to brown your pineapple. The goal is to warm it slightly and caramelize the outside. Cook for about 2 minutes per side on high heat with some olive oil if necessary.
  • Assemble your burgers: start with the buns, then BBQ, lettuce, burger, pickles, and pineapple. Enjoy :)
