Burgers have got to be a favourite with children, no? They certainly are a favourite in our house. These Turkey Burgers are not only dairy, egg, soya, nut and gluten free but they’re also healthier than your average beef burger as they use lean turkey mince. Normally when using lean mince you run the risk of dryness as they give out little fat when cooking, however this recipe avoids this by cooking the onions before making the burgers. This also helps to prevent a raw onion taste and texture in the finished burger. I’ve found this is sufficient enough to help behind the burger, therefore meaning you can make them egg free. I always prefer using oats instead of breadcrumbs in burger/ meatloaf/ meatball recipes as they bulk the meat out and give a nicer texture.
These Turkey Burgers are not the only burgers you can find on my website, these Beef & Butter Bean ones are a popular choice with little one too. Or if you prefer a vegetarian or vegan recipe then this Sweet Potato and Bean Burger recipe will hit the mark! All these recipes can be made into mini burgers and frozen which make them handy to have for an emergency dinner or to be used for lunch!
We had our burgers in a bun with a classic salad of lettuce, cucumber and tomato, with homemade oven-cooked chips. How do you serve yours?
