If like me, you’ve got a toddler who loves eating burgers and cooking them, this recipe is a great way to avoid the endless leftover dry turkey, but stay Christmassy and relatively mess-free. Perfect for us working mums!

Having first experimented on lamb and feta burgers, these perfect patties were a hit with my cooking-mad daughter Ruby, almost three. The kids will love these, and for the grown ups, Organic turkey meat is much lower in fat than normal burgers too.


500g turkey mince (organic)

½ red onion , grated

1 garlic clove , crushed

1 egg yolk

1 tbsp sunflower oil

4 burger buns

Cranberry sauce to serve

Serves 4

Preparation and cooking times

Prep 10 mins

Cook 10 mins

In a large bowl, mix together the turkey mince, onion, and egg yolk with a little salt and pepper. Combine well with your hands, then shape into 4 flat burger patties.

Heat the oil in a frying pan over a high heat, then cook the burgers for 5 mins each side or until cooked through.  Toast the cut sides of the burger buns. Place the salad on the bottom halves of the warm buns, then top with the burgers and dollop of Cranberry sauce.
