Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Heat the oil in a small pan, add the onion, fry for a few mins until lightly browned and soft, then cool. Mix the turkey with the lemon zest, thyme, parsley, onion and seasoning until well combined.
  2. Shape the mixture into 4 burgers and wrap a rasher of bacon around each. Put in a roasting tin, bake for 20-25 mins, then pan-fry for a few mins on each side to crisp up the bacon. Serve in a bun with lettuce, sliced tomato, tomato sauce and vegetable chips (recipe below).

Made this last night and served it with fried new potatoes and salad. Even my fussy daughter loved it. Will be making again

Far too lemony and took 40mins to cook in the oven as they were cool in the middle when tested after 30 mins and pan fried. Very disappointed as the kids wouldn't eat them due to the strong lemon flavour and the fact they don't go with tomato ketchup. A waste of good quality ingredients.

We found the lemon and sage flavours to be a bit too overpowering (I used fresh sage). I've made better turkey burgers with chopped apple in them.

Very easy and delicious. Next time, I'll make twice as much and freeze for an even speedier supper.

Great burgers that were easy to make and tasted delicious. We did find them a little dry but this website was down so I had to try and remember the cooking times which I think I got wrong and I forgot the bacon which im sure whould help to keep them more moist.

This is superb. I added a little milk and flour to bind the burgers together but the taste was lovely. I'm not really one for turkey either! Had with a pitta and salad.

I cannot get hold of rspca approved turkey (only very expensive steaks or battery turkey) so I minced chicken instead. Very tasty and easy.

Really tasty, and great leftover for lunch. I wasn't sure if the lemon zest stated would be enough, but it was just the right lemony level for me.

The best turkey burger recipe I've made before and the vegetable chips make a lovely, healthy accompaniment.
