Made with minced turkey, these burgers are generous in flavour and lean on fat, for a satisfying dinner that's quick to make and a great favourite with children. Serve in muffins, baps or ciabatta rolls.
The bread can be toasted until golden on the split side, if you prefer.
*Make the burgers with minced turkey breast for a lighter flavour and softer texture. *Or try them with minced chicken.
The turkey mixture can be used to make sophisticated burgers. Try serving them on slices of grilled ready-made polenta (cooked according to the pack instructions, or use homemade. Top the burgers with a bought tomato salsa or a hot tomato sauce, and serve with a salad, or with creamy mashed potatoes and stir-fried cabbage.
Might be nice with chilli flakes or ground coriander seed. I found it a bit bland, and the tomato paste didn't really add flavour but made it difficult to see how well cooked it was. But it was a very quick and easy recipe for a weeknight meal. - 10 Jun 2010
A bit too much mace for my families liking. I think I will try coriander instead of mace next time. Otherwise an ok alternative to beef burger in a bun! - 27 Jan 2009
