Turkey Burgers

So you think burgers are off the menu if you are trying to be healthy and keep your weight down?  I refuse to accept that, especially with warm weather upon us and the barbecue crying out to be used.  Turkey mince makes a tasty and healthy burger.  You can get it at some supermarkets, or try poultry shops if you can’t find it there.

I made these at my mate Sam’s place last night and we had them with wholegrain buns, caramelised onion, rocket, avocado and tomato. Delicious!

  • 500 g turkey mince
  • 1/2 onion or 1 small onion, finely chopped (you don’t want the onion pieces too big or they won’t cook well)
  • About two tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary, thyme and sage
  • Zest of half a lemon
  • Pepper

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mixing well.   Roll into hamburger size balls.  Fire up the barbie (or heat the grill on the stove) and brush with olive oil.  Grill the burgers for about 7 minutes each side on medium-high, testing to ensure they’re cooked by pushing a knife in the middle of one and having a peek.  As with chicken, you don’t want undercooked turkey.
