Low fat, High Protein Turkey Burger Recipe


  • 150g Minced Turkey Breast
  • ¼ onion finely diced
  • ½ tsp dried mixed herbs
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch black pepper
  • 2 bread rolls
  • 1 tomato
  • 2 lettuce leaves
  • 6 slices cucumber
  • 2 tbsp low fat mayonnaise


Mix the Mince, onion, herbs, salt and pepper together in a mixing bowl.

Divide the mixture into 2, form into balls then flatten to create a disc shape. Ensure that the ingredients are formed into compact disks so they do not fall apart.

Grill at a medium heat for 15 – 20 minutes turning occasionally. (Ensure that the centre is no longer pink). The burgers should appear warm, juicy, and sizzling with grilled wonder.

Cut the bread rolls across the centre. For those who love a crispy bread roll, consider putting the rolls open face on the grill for a few moments.

Place the lettuce, tomato and cucumber on the base of the bread roll, and spread a tablespoon of the mayonnaise onto the underside of lid part of the roll. Putting the mayonnaise on the bread roll will prevent your roll from becoming soggy when the turkey juice runs out; no one wants a soggy roll instead of the enticing crunch or warm and puffy flavor.

Place the burger onto the top of the salad, then place on the lid.

You can use a shortened kebab skewer to prevent the burger from separating when serving. This will be a family favorite in no time, filling up even the most ravenous among your household!

I was a fat kid, then fat adult. Reached 40 (now 47) and realised life was short and I needed to make changes in order to get the life I wanted.  I followed a healthy eating plan and began to exercise. I then fell in love with feeling good.  I lost 4 1/2 stone which I have managed to keep off and although not slim (size 14 - was 24), I'm now able to take on numerous challenges that I had previously never dreamed possible: I completed a skydive, the Yorkshire 3 peaks and a marathon (6 hours 15). I've just signed up for the 3 national peaks next May. I've been a teacher of Food and nutrition for 20 years and last year retrained in Weight management where I studied Child obesity prevention, behaviour change, pre and post natal nutrition, nutrition for sport and achieved a City and Guilds diploma in Weight Management. I run a weight management group once a week and work with clients 1:1 both online or in person to design weekly food plans which fit around their lifestyles including their physical activity commitments in order that they achieve their optimum performance.  This summer I organised and ran a footy skills club for kids aged 7-14 within the local area with the coaching skills of ex-professional Brazilian player and current Chelsea Youth Coach Gustavo Oliveira. I have just completed a project for the FA working on a healthy eating school project that will be going national later in the academic year. I have produced a publication for youth players aged 12-18 explaining their nutritional needs, pre and post match food choices etc which the FA are currently looking at implementing into their youth development.
