How to Make Low Fat Turkey Burgers
Low Fat Turkey Burgers are a yummy delicious alternative, there great for lunches and dinners, so simple to prepare! Turkey Mince is widely available at your local supermarket – you will find it where you find chicken mince. It is usually cheaper than chicken mince, it is lower in fat than chicken mince – and when cooked – you can’t taste the difference between turkey mince and chicken mince. Turkey mince is available in 500 gram packs. This recipe for Low Fat Turkey Burgers uses 250 grams – but I highly recommnd doubling the recipe!
You can also purchase turkey mince and use it in place of any chicken mince recipe – just to cut down on your fat intake.
Turkey sometimes has a bad name for being ‘dry’ when cooked – but not turkey mince. In fact I can never tell the difference when my hubby makes these for me – and unless I see the packet – I never know if it is chicken or turkey!
Low Fat Turkey Burgers are a delicious and healthy ‘cheat’ if you are trying to be good – just cut out the cheese and sauce, stack up on the salad and use a low-carb bun – and you have a healthy takeaway meal at home.
Best of all – you can make the Low Fat Turket Burger patties in advance and freeze them – they defrost very easily and can be just heated up in the microwave for a quick snack whenever you feel like it!
Mix together the turkey mince, egg, thyme and salt and pepper. Shape into two thick patties.
Grill the turkey burgers on either side until fully cooked through. Lay a slice of cheese onto each burger for the last minute of cooking.
Cut the wholemeal roll and fill with the spinach and cheese and burger and top with some tomato relish.
