Turkey burgers recipe

Makes 4 large burgers or 10 canapé size burgers

Prep time: 30 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

For the burgers

500g turkey mince

2 shallots, peeled and finely chopped

1 clove garlic, crushed

100g rolled oats

1 egg, lightly beaten

1 tbsps parsley, finely chopped


For the cranberry and pecan sauce

250g fresh cranberries

100ml maple syrup

Juice and grated zest 1 orange

25g pecans

To serve

4 large baps or 10 mini rolls



What to do:

Place all the ingredients for the burgers into a large bowl, mix together and press into either four large patties or 10 small ones. Place on a tray and refrigerate for at least half an hour.

Place the cranberries, maple syrup and orange juice and zest into a saucepan, bring to a simmer and cook until softened and syrupy, then add the pecans.

Cook the burgers either in a griddle or frying pan in a little oil, over a medium heat for approximately 10-12 minutes each side for the large ones and 5-7 minutes for the small. Make sure to check they are cooked through and piping hot.

Serve in warm baps or mini rolls spread with mayonnaise, topped with a little lettuce and a good spoonful of the cranberry and pecan sauce.

Cooks Tip: To make a version from left-over turkey simply chop or mince left over dark and white cooked Turkey meat, add some breadcrumbs and a beaten egg or a little mayonnaise to bind, form into patties and fry until golden and piping hot. Serve as above with the cranberry and pecan sauce.
