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.
