Spicy Cajun Turkey Mini Burgers
Everyone loves burgers and this recipe offers the perfect opportunity to enjoy a home-made and healthier version of what’s generally available from supermarkets. To keep the fat level of this recipe low, I’ve replaced the traditional beef mince with turkey and, because this can taste a little bland on its own, I have added plenty of spices, some chopped green chilli and garlic to give it a bit of extra kick. If you are using fresh turkey mince that hasn’t been previously frozen, you can also store these Cajun mini burgers in the freezer and cook later on for an even quicker dinner.

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Ingredients (Serves 2/3)

600g of lean turkey mince
1 egg
2 tablespoons of oat bran
1 tablespoon of Cajun spice mix
1 green chilli, chopped (optional)
2 small cloves of garlic, chopped

Let’s get cooking

1. Put the mince in a bowl and mix well with the rest of the ingredients mentioned above using a fork. Alternatively, you can also use a food processor to speed things up
2. Use your hands to shape the turkey mixture into eight small burgers
3. Heat up a griddle pan over high heat for about 5 minutes until very hot
4. Place the burgers on the griddle pan and cook until the meat is cooked through and the burgers are browned
5. Serve hot with some 0% fat Greek yoghurt on PP days or accompanied by a vegetable side dish on a P+V day
