Turkey burgers

Creating your own burgers are a cheaper, easier and very often a tastier alternative to buying store bought burgers. Plus there is the added benefit of knowing what is actually in them! We've decided to change beef for turkey here as it's a leaner and healthier meat, but still ever so tasty. When it comes to adding your herbs and spices, below is just a rough guide, please feel free to season to taste! Swapping bread rolls for pitta bread is also a much more weight friendly alternative, giving you just the same amount of satisfaction!


  • 1kg turkey mince
  • 1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 4cm piece root ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 green chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 TBS wholegrain mustard
  • 1 medium egg
  • Large handful fresh coriander, roughly chopped
  • 2 TBS vegetable oil
  • 8 large pitta breads
  • Lettuce and tomatoes to serve
  • Salt and pepper

Serves 8


  1. Put the turkey mince, onion, ginger, chilli, mustard, egg and coriander into a bowl. Season well and mix together, using your hands
  2. Shape into 8 patties, cover and chill until needed
  3. Pre-heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/mark 6
  4. In a large non-stick pan, heat the oil and gently brown the burgers on each side
  5. Arrange on a non-stick baking tray and cook in the oven for 15 minutes or until cooked through
  6. Serve the burgers in toasted pitta breads with lettuce and tomato slices
