Recipe – Turkey, Bacon and Cheese Burgers

This summer sun just keeps going! It’s fantastic and so I’ve been doing more BBQ recipes and experimentation. These are great, tasty burgers with less fat content than a typical beef version.

For six, you will need:

  • 500g minced turkey
  • 4 rashers smoked bacon
  • 100g grated mature Cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Handful flat leaf parsley
  • 3 spring onions
  • 1 heaped teaspoon cornflour

Place the mince in a large bowl. Chop up the bacon with scissors into matchstick sizes, add this to the bowl.

Roughly chop the parsley, thinly slice the spring onions and add to the bowl together with all other ingredients. Add a good sprinkling of salt and pepper.

With your hands, mix everything in the bowl thoroughly, squeezing it all together.

Divide into six equal amounts and roll into balls, then flatten into burger patties. Pop on a plate, cover with cling film and chill for at least 30 minutes before BBQing.

BBQ for at least 20 minutes, over a medium heat initially or on the top rack, then brown and finish off over the main heat for the last five minutes.

Serve in a bun with mayo or ketchup, lettuce and tomatoes. Or put coleslaw in the bun, that works really well!
