Turkey burgers are a healthy alternative to beef, but they can be lacking in flavour. This recipe fixes all that, incorporating fennel, onion and green pepper into the mix. The burgers are then topped with bacon.

5 rashers bacon
1/2 fennel bulb, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
4 tablespoons seasoned breadcrumbs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
560g minced turkey
5 thick slices ciabatta or ciabatta rolls, toasted
Cook bacon in a large frying pan over medium heat. Remove from pan with slotted spoon or tongs and save for later.
Add fennel, onion and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, until just tender, then move to a bowl.
Stir breadcrumbs, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper into the vegetables. Add turkey and stir well to incorporate, then form the mixture into 5 burgers. Set on a plate, cover with cling film, and chill for 1 hour.
Preheat BBQ to medium and lightly oil cooking grate.
Place turkey burgers on the BBQ, close lid and cook for about 4 minutes. Flip and grill for another 2 to 4 minutes, until turkey burgers are cooked through.
Set each burger on top of a piece of bread, add a piece of bacon, and serve with slices of tomato, if desired.
