Easy Pesto Turkey Burgers

Easy Pesto Turkey Burgers

These mega Easy Pesto Turkey patties or burgers or whatever you want to call them 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. They are such a refreshing change from beef burgers, somehow lighter and so good.

Turkey is high in zinc, B vitamins, phosphorus, tryptophan, selenium and protein. It is low in saturated fat, cholesterol, provided that you do not eat the skin. It can be a part of a healthy eating plan, especially since it is a good source of protein. … Turkey is loaded with trytophan, a sleep-inducing amino acid. (I need to eat more turkey!!)

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? I know many of you that have added chilli and love them.

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 alternative Turkey Burgers and let me know how you go by dropping me a comment below the post, I love your comments

Thanks Clare x

Ingredients

  • 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
