Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Mix together the garlic, anchovy, lemon juice, two-thirds of the Parmesan and parsley. Put half in a small bowl, mix with the yogurt and set aside. Mix the other half in a large bowl with the mince and onion, then season. Shape into 4 burgers and place on a roasting tray, then cook for 15-20 mins, until cooked through.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the lettuce with the yogurt dressing and slice the buns. To assemble, place the burgers in the buns with some salad and a few tomato slices. Serve the burgers with any leftover salad sprinkled with the reserved Parmesan.

I measured the ingredients for this recipe precisely. The dressing part of the recipe was really nice but the burgers were dry bland and tasteless and my husband requested a strong preference for never again ! I've been experimenting with turkey mince for the first time as a low fat low calorie option. I used minced breast for this recipe and minced thigh for a Thai meatball recipe a few days ago which we really enjoyed . I wonder if thigh meat is tastier as with chicken? I was very disappointed but the 3• rating should have alerted me !

Thought the salad was lovely. I cooked the burger for longer and at a higher temperature towards the end, to get them nice and brown.

Recipe is confusing and end result was hugely disappointing. Loved the Thai turkey burgers (which are fried) so check them out before trying these. Over and out.

we love these, they are very satisfying and really yummy. I cook the onions first, as don't like raw onions, and we have them with ciabatta rolls instead of brown ones

I enjoyed cooking this meal for my food coursework at school, I left out the parsley and cut out some of the fat by not including the greek yoghurt instead replacing it for an egg which acted as a binder, anyway i had four burgers ate one and the food department teachers finished the rest, so id say it was a success.
Great recipe.
