Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the turkey mince in a large bowl, with the spring onions, cheddar and some seasoning. Mix well, then shape into 4 even-sized burgers. Chill for 15 mins.

  2. Put the sweet potato chips on a large non-stick baking tray, and toss in 2 tbsp of the oil and some salt. Cook in the oven for 30 mins, turning halfway through.

  3. Heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat and cook the burgers for 10 mins until golden. Turn over and repeat for the other side until they are cooked through. Split the rolls, place a burger into each with some sliced cucumber and a dollop of ketchup, and serve alongside the sweet potato chips and salad, if you like.

Made these with leek instead of spring onions and sweated the leeks first - delicious, even for the fussy 6-yo!

I made these burgers for tonight's dinner and they were a big hit with the family. Easy to prepare with minimum ingredients and tasted delicious. My fussy 4 year old said they were the best burgers ever. I think I now prefer these over our normal beef burgers.

Made with red onion instead as didn't have spring onions. Added garlic paste, tomato puree and a splash of Worcestershire sauce - lovely!

So easy to make, turkey has a much better consistancy than beef for making burgers, very tasty and a favourite with eveyone who has tried them.

I made the burgers last Friday and they were really delicious. They were so easy to prepare and cook. I didn't make the chips, but will try to do these another day.
