Easy turkey burgers that are as delicious hot as they are cold.
  • 2 TBSP olive oil (for cooking with)
  • 500g turkey mince
  • 90g red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 spring onion, finely chopped
  • 80g mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1 TBSP smoked paprika
  • sea salt (to taste)
  • pepper
  • ½ a veggie stock cube or jelly (VERY LOW SALT) optional
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 large egg, whisked (if you are concerned that the mixture will be too wet then add a little bit at a time and see how it holds together)
  1. Preheat the oven to 190C.
  2. In to a large mixing bowl place turkey mince, red onion, spring onion, mushrooms, smoked paprika, sea salt, pepper, veggie stock, garlic powder and a large egg (see ingredient note above)
  3. Wash your hands. Now mix the ingredients together using your hands to combine all. If you would rather you could put the ingredients in to a food processor and pulse it a few times so that it was all mixed together
  4. Use your hands to mould the mixture in to burger shapes- I usually make about 6 - 7. Put on a plate and have a spatula ready
  5. In a large frying pan over high heat add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil (if you have a good non stick pan then I would just add a small drizzle). Allow the oil to heat before .
  6. Carefully add each burger to the pan and allow approximately 2 minutes on each side to make sure that the meat is sealed (it will go a nice golden colour)
  7. Carefully move the burgers on to a baking sheet and put in to the oven for 10 minutes
  8. (Remove and check one burger to make sure piping hot in the centre and cooked through).
  9. Serve immediately or allow to cool (cover with some foil to keep moist. If you are going to let them cool completely then do so on a wire wrack cover with foil and once cool, place in the fridge and eat within 24 hours.
If you find your mixture to be too wet and not sticking together it may be that your egg was too big, or that you have used defrosted turkey mince. In that case, add 2-3 tablespoons of ground almonds or other flour of choice to bind the mixture together.
