Turkey Burgers

by Admin Edatachase

My sister has serious allergies and while we were sorting out what was causing her more extreme problems, turkey became essential to her diet. It’s a low-fat meat, but exceptionally high in protein and takes spices well, which can make a very simple meal feel quite gourmet. This is one of the simple recipes that made my sister’s life easier and has stuck around in our family repertoire, because it honestly tastes fab.

These burgers can be made with your choice of minced meat and spice/herb additions.  Grate apple or onion and ground mushrooms will let down the meat content and make your meat go further.  The more you add, the more need there will be to add a beaten egg to bind your mixture. The recipe below is the most pared back, basic version of this meal, making it the most allergen friendly, if you don't have a problem with turkey. 

These burgers are simple turkey with coriander and carraway.  They take very little time to make, and in the air fryer, very little time to cook.

If you don’t have an air fryer, you can cook them in a conventional oven or fry.

Basic recipe: makes 3 medium or 2 larger burgers. 

  • 500gr turkey mince
  • Salt
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp carraway seeds
  • 6 medium potatoes
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ginger
  • ¼ tsp white pepper

  1. Tip the mince into a bowl.  Sprinkle salt over the surface and the coriander and carraway. 
  2. Using your hands, knead the meat, folding in the spices.  The mince should come together quite quickly. 
  3. Divide the meat equally into 2 or 3 portions.  Roll each portion into a ball and flatten into a burger.  At this stage, you can refrigerate the meat for a couple of hours, or longer: this will allow the spices to infuse.
  4. Pre-heat air fryer to 205°C.
  5. Dice your potatoes into 2 inch cubes (approximately), toss in oil and spices and put in preheated air fryer for 22 minutes, shaking halfway through. (50 minutes at 180°C in a conventional oven)
  6. Remove potatoes from the air fryer, put them in a bowl and cover with a tea towel to keep them warm.
  7. Reduce the head of the air fryer to 180°C and lay the burgers in the air fryer basket (or on a baking sheet) and cook for 15 minutes (30 minutes in a conventional oven).
  8. If the potatoes need reheating, add them back into the air fryer for a minute at the end.
  9. Serve with preferred vegetables and apple chutney (not pictured).
