Lemon & thyme turkey burgers
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 4
These low-fat turkey burgers are flavoured with onion and herbs, wrapped in a single rasher of streaky bacon for added flavour - a surefire family hit
- STEP 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.
- STEP 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).
Cut a selection of carrots, parsnips and potatoes, depending on what's in season (no need to peel) into large chips. Toss in olive oil, a good sprinkling paprika and a little salt and spread over a baking sheet. Roast at the same temperature as the burgers for 45-50 mins, turning halfway through the cooking time.
