Turkey Burgers

Posted by Beni Cook
We love a good burger. And the holiday period is as good as any to whip yourself up a juicy Turkey Burger with on-the-spot prepared chutney.
The burger itself is low in calories and packed with protein. Depending on your dietary wants and needs this can be served with a leafy green salad, a fresh and tangy coleslaw, or a delish helping of sweet potato fries.

  • 450g turkey mince
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • handful of flat-leaf parsley finely chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • ½ lemon, zested
  • 4 small vine tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soft light brown sugar
  • 4 wholemeal buns, split
  • 4 tbsp low fat mayonnaise
  • large handful of shredded Iceberg lettuce
  • 1 med tomato, sliced
  • 1/2 small red onion, sliced

1) Put the chutney ingredients in a pan and simmer over a medium heat, stirring regularly for 25-30 minutes or until the tomatoes have broken down and the mixture has thickened and looks jammy. Remove from the heat, cool and season well.

2) Squash together the turkey mince, egg, parsley, garlic granules and lemon zest with some seasoning using clean hands, then form into four burger patties. Heat the grill to its highest setting and move the rack to the upper third of the oven. Put the patties on a tray and cook under the hot grill for 4-6 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.

3) Toast the cut sides of the buns under the grill or in a dry frying pan. Spread with the mayonnaise, then sandwich with the lettuce, tomato and onion slices, burger patties and tomato chutney. Serve your Turkey Burger with a mixed salad, coleslaw or sweet potato wedges.
