Turkey and Herb Burgers

INGREDIENTS:535EE154-A828-4E1B-A1F7-14A104715B6C

  • 500g 5% turkey thigh mince
  • 4 tbsp breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 7 tsp chopped parsley
  • Pepper to taste
  • A dash of Worcester sauce
  • A few tbsp of buttermilk (can omit) these have so much flavour even without. I also didn’t use any salt – I barely ever do.

INSTRUCTIONS:

This is another one of those recipes where all you have to do is mix all ingredients together and shape it into 4 burger patties and cook. For best results, use a non-stick pan, make sure the pan is hot and for spray a little oil on the pan just to ensure the onions and herbs don’t burn. In order to lower the fat content of the burgers, choose the 2% turkey breast mince instead of the 5% thigh mince.

Also remember, no food is inherently ‘bad’ or ‘good’, it’s all in the amount used and the way it’s prepared. Healthy ingredients doesn’t automatically mean weight loss and having an “unhealthy” treat isn’t going to make us immediately gain weight. Everything in moderation while keeping an eye on your caloric intake and the macro ratio in favour of protein plus eating large quantities of green cruciferous vegetables will allow you to successfully steer towards weight loss.
