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.
