This recipe is tasty and quick to prepare which is key when entertaining the masses.


For the burgers:
500g British turkey thigh mince
2 tbsp mayonnaise
2 tbsp chopped fresh basil
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
½ medium egg white, lightly beaten
1-2 tbsp dried breadcrumbs
Salt and ground pepper
150g Gruyere, cheese cut into small slices
4 tbsp oil

For the relish:
4 ripe plum tomatoes, chopped into small pieces
½ small red onion, very finely chopped
½ small red chilli, very finely chopped
3 tbsp chopped coriander
Juice of a large lime
2-3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Pinch of sugar
Salt and pepper to taste

To serve:
Sliced ciabatta
Lettuce leaves


  • Place the turkey, mayonnaise, Basil, Worcestershire sauce and egg white together into a bowl. Mix really well, then add the seasoning and dried breadcrumbs and mix well again.
  • Leave to chill for 30 minutes, so the mixture can tighten, once the breadcrumbs reconstitute themselves.
  • Mould into 4 - 6 balls, then flatten slightly into small patties.
  • Place a small piece of Gruyere cheese in the centre and reform into a ball and flatten again.
  • Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, then add the burgers, cook for a couple of minutes, then flip over and cook for a further 3 - 4 minutes.
  • Combine all ingredients for the relish and serve with the burgers on top of toasted slices of Ciabatta and lettuce.
