Switching out the beef mince for turkey mince makes these burgers lighter, healthier and completely delicious!

They’re also super simple to make, totally faff free. A really easy dinner recipe the whole family can enjoy.

Now because minced turkey can be a little on the bland side, we flavour our turkey mince burgers up using marmalade and chipotle paste for a Mexican vibe that’s oh so good.

For the turkey mince burgers

  • 500g turkey mince

  • 4 slices Monterey Jack cheese – or any other cheese you like

How To Make Turkey Burgers

You’ll love how easy these homemade turkey burgers are to make – just mix the burgers in the mince packet, so it’s mess free!

Step 1 – Make the burger patties

  • Open the turkey mince packet, tip in the lime marmalade, the chipotle paste and a pinch of salt and scrunch everything together with your hands to mix in the flavours.
  • Form the turkey mince into four burger patties using your hands. Pat them down so that they’re thin burgers so they cook quicker.

Step 2 – Cook the patties

  • Cook on a hot griddle pan for around 10-15 minutes or until cooked through properly with no pink remaining. Flip the burgers often to ensure even cooking.

Step 3 – Serve the turkey burgers

  • Once the burgers are cooked slide them onto the ciabatta rolls add a handful of lettuce, a couple of slices of avocado, a slice of Monterey Jack cheese and dollop on the Mexican roast tomato salsa. Then squash on the lid and enjoy!

Turkey Burgers – Recipe Variations

Okay, so this is a super simple turkey mince burger recipe and there’s loads of ways you can mix this up and serve it differently. 

  • Go Indian – skip the marmalade and chipotle paste and add a couple of spoonfuls of curry paste to the turkey mince. These are great served on folded flatbreads with salad and Indian mint sauce
  • Go Thai – make these turkey burgers with a Thai flavour – mix in some Thai curry paste and serve in lettuce wraps with grated carrots, radish slices and just a dash of sweet chilli sauce.
  • Go Italian – use pesto to flavour the turkey mince then serve in a ciabatta roll with rocket salad, garlic may

Yummy Sides To Serve With Turkey Burgers
