Turkey Burgers

For a healthier alternative to red meat burgers, you might want to try making your own turkey burgers.  This was my own first attempt, but they turned out quite yummy!  Here is the recipe I used...

You will need:

1 small/medium egg
4 Tbsp breadcrumbs
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1.5lbs/380g turkey breast mince

Yield: Approx 4 large burgers

1. Combine 1 egg, breadcrumbs, onion power, pepper, salt, with the turkey mince.

2. Divide mixture by 4 and roll each into a ball before pressing flat to desired width.

3. Fry burgers on a medium-low heat in a covered frying pan, flipping occasionally, until cooked through.

4. Serve on a toasted bun and your preferred burger toppings.
