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!
