What we thought:
As a busy mum, I wanted to cook a dish that was quick and easy to prepare and that I knew would go down well with everybody. The turkey burgers were the perfect start to our weekend – delicious, but fun to eat. They went down really well, especially with the children who asked for them again next week! Definitely something we will be making again and again.

A leaner, meaner alternative to beef, this recipe will bring all the boys to the barbecue.
  1. Preheat the grill.
  2. Mix together the turkey mince, onion, garlic, breadcrumbs, egg, parsley and seasoning in a large bowl until they are well combined.
  3. Form into 6 burgers, patting them together well.
