Spicy Naked Breakfast Burgers

Today started off with my second Body Pump class {wahoo! friggin’ love that workout}.  Run club later with my brother, thinkin’ I’m gonna do the 5-miler today.  Call the sweat squad, it’s hawt down here.

I had a few errands to run, and I also had a free smoothie coupon to redeem that was in the welcome package from my gym.  After the class I ordered the “Lean Machine Passion Fruit Smoothie” a high protein bev with added fiber and nutrients.  I don’t know, I was hungry, it was free…

It actually was pretty good…but I like my smoothies better :).

Today I wanted to share a recipe that I whipped up for breakfast before work yesterday.  It basically came to me in a dream the night before and it was glorious.  So I decided to bring it to life.  I was also really excited about it because I am low on ingredients round these parts {that actually reminds me, I need to go to Trader Joe’s later}, but even though I was at the bare minimum I was still able to create it!

Enter:  Spicy Naked Breakfast Burgers {They’re Naked b/c there’s no bun…}

The basis of this meal is the Turkey Burger.  Soon, I plan on making a huge batch of homemade burgers and freezing them so that I can instantly make this or something like it whenever I want.  Jimmy had some Turkey Burgers from TJ’s so I snuck one {oopsies, I’ll replace it laterrrr…maybe}.  These babies are actually pretty decent for being prepackaged frozen burgers.  Just three ingredients:  Ground Turkey, Kosher Salt, and Rosemary Extract…Ta-Daa!  Below are the ingredients:

1 Frozen Turkey Burger
1/8th cup of sliced red onion
1 egg
1 Tbsp of coconut oil for cooking
Sriracha to top

For the Guacamole:
1 Avocado
1 Tbsp of chopped Red Onion
Juice from one lemon wedge
Salt, Garlic Powder, and Pepper to Taste


1.  Begin by cooking the onions in the coconut oil.  During this time, make the guac…just add all the ingredients in a bowl and mash until there’s a smooth, guacamol-ey consistency.

2.  Add the burger to the skillet and cook until done, should take about 5-7 minutes.  Then proceed by following the nifty four square image below.

3.  Add the guac and onions, fry the egg and add the Sriracha.  I only used half of the guacamole that I made.  I gave Jimmy the other half {a fair trade for the Turkey Burger?  Sure}.

Not the most attractive aerial view, but of course, half a grapefruit a day keeps the doc away.

This makes me hungry all over again by simply looking at it.  I just can’t quit you, fried egg.

Throwing an egg and any combo of veggies on a burger could make this a great way to do breakfast, so what do you guys think?

Alright, done for the day…now off to catch some rays before run club.  {whatever, you guys get Saturdays off, I don’t}

See y’all later on!

How do you guys dress up burgers for breakfast?
