Last weekend we went away to visit friends and on our first night there we were standing aimlessly in the supermarket aisle trying to decide what to cook for dinner. [It must be noted here that all of are are notoriously bad at making decisions.] But then Fi, noticing turkey mince out of the corner of her eye shouted: let’s make turkey burgers! It turned out that she had seen a recipe on Classy Clutter earlier in the day, which sounded amazing and was therefore at the forefront of her mind (it would have been in yours too had you seen the picture – look at them!).
The rest of us jumped at the idea of turkey burgers, partly because it meant we didn’t have to make a decision and also because Fi makes the BEST beef burgers so we all knew we’d be in for a treat. And we were. They were totally delicious and I’m sure they will become a staple in our future dinner decisions.
Here’s what you need:
- 500g turkey mince
- 1 egg
- 2 slices of bread-crumbed
- salt and pepper
Here’s what you do:
- The recipe couldn’t be any simpler, basically add everything together and mix well, get you’re hands in there and make a mess!
- Once mixed divide your mixture into equal sized balls – we made eight – before flattening them and placing them on a floured plate.
- Now grill the burgers on a medium heat this took about 20-25 minutes for us but it really does depend on your oven.
We served these with some homemade sweet potato wedges and a vegetable mix of onions, peppers, mushrooms and tiny tomatoes. You could of course add cheese and buns as well as all the usual burgers sides. The flavours of the turkey are so simple, but also perfectly succulent and juicy, that you can be more adventurous with all your toppings. We didn’t go the whole hog on the Classy Clutter recipe as we hadn’t got the time for the BBQ sauce but we will definitely be giving that recipe a trial soon!
