Delicious turkey burgers

    30 min

    This is a simple recipe. After making them the first time my husband said 'no more' to beef burgers. These are really good - any cooking method may be used, and they freeze very well.

    Amazing recipe!!!! I couldn't be bothered to separate the eggs, it was a bit more moist but still worked well and added grated pitta for the breadcrumbs. I also reduced the ingredients to a third for just two people and it still worked amazingly! It's more affordable and tastier than making beef burgers and healthier! They taste great the next day as well. I baked mine in the oven and they came out great! I wrap mine in lettuce leaves to avoid additional carbs, the crunch is divine! These will be a regular favourite now, thank you so much x x x It lasted well too!  -  17 Jul 2011


    These were gorgeous, although I didn't have any breadcrumbs so I used a bit of wholemeal flour to get a better consistency.....they still tasted amazing though  -  21 Dec 2011


    incredibly simple to make - didn't really follow quantities too much, just used the pack of turkey mince that I had - I think about 500g. Used one whole egg, didn't bother to separate it, and the recipe worked fine. I had a small aluminium pie foil, which I used to form the burgers - no mess of handling or rolling out, and I was able to press the meat down firmly with the back of a wooden spoon to ensure that it was compressed and bound well. Had a half portion left over and made a thin burger; the thick ones (2cm ish) were definitely better.  -  20 Jan 2013
