Turkey Burgers and Fries #healthyliving…sortof

I’ve always been a massive fan of turkey burgers. In fact, just burgers. I came up with the idea of adding garlic and onions a few months ago when I went on a health kick, but still wanted some flavorful food. My flat mate is absolutely inspiring when it comes eating healthy and getting creative with food, so I decided to make this for her as a thank you for her great support of my new cooking adventure!

Turkey mince is very low in fat and if cooked right, is a great substitute for beef mince. With this post I want to show how easy a decent meal can be – and especially, how delicious

Ingredients:

  • turkey mince
  • onion
  • garlic
  • potatoes
  • salt
  • petter
  • cajun spice (optional)
  • condiments (optional)
  • lettuce
  • tomato
  • cheese
  • bread (optional)

Steps for Burger Patty:

  1. Dice onions and garlic.

Onion and Garlic

  1. Mix onion and garlic in turkey mince.

Patties

  1. Take the mince and form into small patties (to preference… I usually do about 2.5-3 inch dimeter)
  2. Preheat grill to desired cooking temperature depending on grill (For US ovens, use 350F).
  3. Place patty on baking tray and place in over – if on grill setting, rotate patty evert 8-10 minutes depending on temperature. Cook until cooked all the way through and there is no pink left.
  4. Fry onions on stove if desired for a topper and add lettuce and tomato to burger bun (toasting burger bun is optional, but recommended).

Onions

Steps for Fries:

  1. Chop potatoes into small wedge-like pieces and sprinkle salt as desired.

Cut Fries

  1. Preheat oil on stove.

 

Boiling Fries

  1. Dump fries in oil and let cook until golden brown and medium texture.
  2. Remove from oil and place in paper towel to remove excess oil.
  3. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and other spices as desired on fries.
  4. (I often add salt vinegar as well!)
