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
- turkey mince
- cajun spice (optional)
- condiments (optional)
- bread (optional)
Steps for Burger Patty:
- Dice onions and garlic.
- Mix onion and garlic in turkey mince.
- Take the mince and form into small patties (to preference… I usually do about 2.5-3 inch dimeter)
- Preheat grill to desired cooking temperature depending on grill (For US ovens, use 350F).
- 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.
- Fry onions on stove if desired for a topper and add lettuce and tomato to burger bun (toasting burger bun is optional, but recommended).
Steps for Fries:
- Chop potatoes into small wedge-like pieces and sprinkle salt as desired.
- Preheat oil on stove.
- Dump fries in oil and let cook until golden brown and medium texture.
- Remove from oil and place in paper towel to remove excess oil.
- Sprinkle salt, pepper, and other spices as desired on fries.
- (I often add salt vinegar as well!)
