Turkey burgers

Katie Bryson says, ‘Turkey mince is a cheaper, low-fat alternative to beef. For extra zing, add lemon zest and fresh thyme to the patty mixture'

  • 2 slices white bread
  • 500g turkey mince
  • 50g Cheddar, grated
  • 1 small red onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 tsp mixed dried herbs
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil

To serve

  • 12 soft white rolls
  • 12 tsp mayonnaise, to serve
  • 1 Little Gem lettuce
  • 2 salad tomatoes, sliced
  1. Whizz the bread in a processor to turn into crumbs then mix with the mince, Cheddar, onion and herbs and season well. Divide the mixture into 12 patties, each about 6 x 2cm.
  2. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and fry the burgers over a medium heat for 5 minutes per side, until cooked through and no pink meat remains. Cook in two batches if necessary rather than overcrowd the pan. To serve, cut the rolls in half, spread 1 tsp mayonnaise on each bottom bun, top with a Little Gem leaf, a burger and a tomato slice.
