Turkey Burgers

It’s BBQ season and we’ve created this delicious recipe for healthy turkey burgers. Turkey is a great alternative to beef burgers, as it’s generally lower in saturated fat and so a great choice for heart health and energy balance! We made our burgers hot ‘n’ spicy – you can turn up the spice too by adding jalapeño peppers or leave them out if you prefer it mild.

Serve in a wholemeal bun with your favourite burger toppings…. are you a gherkins or no gherkins kind of person?


  • 500g 2% fat turkey breast mince 
  • 2 cloves garlic 
  • ½ red onion 
  • 1 tbsp sliced jalapenos (more if you like it spicy!) 
  • 100g light feta cheese 
  • ½ tsp paprika 
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper 
  • ½ tsp cumin 
  • Few sprays of Frylight 

How to make

Turkey Burgers



  1. Crush the garlic, finely dice the onion and jalapenos and crumble the feta cheese. 
  2. Add all ingredients to a bowl and mix together well. If you have time, cover and leave to marinade in the fridge, or you can use the mix straight away. 
  3. Split into 6 equal pieces and form into patties. 
  4. Heat a frying pan and spray with Frylight. 
  5. Cook burgers for 10 minutes turning halfway.
