Pesto Turkey Patties


Pesto Turkey Patties

These patties are so tasty and are such a refreshing change from beef! I love turkey mince and it’s so good to utilise it and make a tasty quick supper. Turkey mince is low fat and relatively low cost – so winner winner turkey dinner :-) I really do love these babies.

Pesto makes them for me but you could add some chilli flakes too or some chopped fresh chilli if you’re looking for a kick of spice?

Turkey mince is so underated I have another great recipe here for Turkey Pepper Boat Melts  which also happens to be really low carb. Have a gander!

So have a try at these Pesto Turkey Patties and let me know how you go by dropping me a comment below the post, I love your comments

Thanks Clare x


  • 500g British Turkey Mince
  • 2 tablespoons Basil pesto
  • 6 Salad Onions / Spring Onions – what is the difference? – thinly sliced
  • 1 clove garlic crushed / or squirt of chilled garlic (Garden Gourmet)
  • Salt and Black pepper
  • 6 bread rolls / or ciabatta Rolls / I use a baton sliced
  • 2 Large Beef steak tomatoes
  • 1 ‘half fat’ fresh mozzarella
  • Hand full watercress or slices of Avocado

Preparation Method

  1. In a large bowl mix together turkey mince, chopped spring onion, garlic, pesto and salt and pepper.
  2. Using damp hands shape into 6 patties (burgers) or if you want larger ones just 4. If you have time – chill for for a few hours
  3. In a large non stick frying pan – spray with fry light (or olive oil), fry the patties for 10-15 minutes ensuring you have lots of colour on outside and the patties are cooked through (NO PINK MEAT – CHECK!!!)
  4. Cut the rolls in half, grill on one side or the bread, spread small amount of Pesto on top
  5. Place the patties on the bun or bread, add a slice of mozzarella, a slice of beef steak tomato and a nice handful watercress , season (you could add slices avocado) as well Alternatively ditch the bun and serve with a nice big green fresh salad.
  6. Now that’s Easypeasylemonsqueezy! Cx
