Cute Turkey Burgers

Yam Chips

A few years ago a good friend of mine introduced me to frying yams for a snack.  They were tasteless.  I was so frustrated that such an important vegetable could taste so disgusting.  Unfortunately I forgot about blandness when I served the yam chips with this delicious burger,  a perfect lesson and reminder that a little flavour goes a long way.  Only a little seasoning is needed for the burgers and although the burgers are fried the amount of sugars and fats are severely reduced so served with yam chips/ fries the meal is healthier and cheaper than a standard fast food outlet menu.

This recipe was taken from The Burger (Parragon Books, 2012).



350g fresh turkey mince, 4 tbsps wholemeal breadcrumbs, 1 red onion (finely chopped), 1 apple (peeled and diced), 2 tbsps finely chopped fresh parsley, sunflower oil (for frying), salt and pepper, burger buns.



  1. Place all the ingredients apart from the buns and oil in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Form together into patties.
  3. Fry in a grill pan, if there are any traces of pink place in a grill until well done.
  4. Place in burger buns with sauces and sides of choice.
