  • ¼ x cucumber (or 1 small Lebanese cucumber), thinly sliced

  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.

Really nice and so easy. Healthy alternative to beef.

Really lovely and not much faffing! Usually buy ready made fresh turkey burgers from supermarket but will make these from now on. Kids were a bit put off by the green bits (spring onion!) but got over it and really enjoyed them!

I’m not a massive fan of turkey mince normally but these burgers are really good! Kids loved helping to make them. So simple with just a few ingredients and not a lot of chopping and nonfaffing with breadcrumbs and eggs like beef burgers. Enjoyed by us all including an extremely fussy 4 year old and an 18 month old

Just made these for dinner and they went down a treat! I didn't think they were going to be as tasty as they were. We had a left over green chilli so added that in too which gave it a little kick. Easy and tasty, will definitely make again!

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.
