I've made the burgers a few times. I add a small tomato and only add egg white to make it healthier. I also add salt, but not required if you are having it with lime pickle.

Have made these burgers several times now, they are always a winner. We usually have them with lime pickle and a wholemeal roll - delicious and very low fat!! Even the kids eat them!!

Very easy to make and lots of flavour. Made them flatter too for faster cooking.

Was surprised what a nice burger turkey mince makes. Very tasty with a seeded granary bap and a generous dollop of mango chutney.

these are spot on! get the patties a bit flatter than those, and use the bigger wholemeal baps instead. this way the meat cooks through easier and they don't topple over on the plate, and they are a bit healthier! be generous with the mango chutney!

Although not as good on fat content, this recipe is fantastic done with lamb mince. Add a few flakes of red hot chille flakes for that extra kick!!! Fantastic!

These were lovely - didn't feel low fat but make sure you make them quite flat as otherwise they don't cook all the way through properly.
