Ingredients

  • 500 g turkey breast mince
  • 225 g block halloumi cheese chopped finely
  • 1 white onion chopped finely
  • ½ red pepper chopped finely
  • ½ yellow pepper chopped finely
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp mild chilli powder/sweet paprika according to preference
  • Handful of chopped pickled jalapenos optional
  • Handful of chopped parsley optional

Instructions

  1. Once all your ingredients are chopped and ready, mix everything into a large mixing bowl, ensuring all the seasonings are well mixed through into all the mince.
  2. Divide the mixture into 5 equal parts and form each part into a burger. I find this easiest by using some cling film in a flat tapas dish to form them all uniformly.
  3. Once formed, place in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes to firm up. I often freeze them individually wrapped up at this point, then I have burgers ready to go on a busy weeknight.
  4. When you’re ready to cook your burgers, if frozen, ensure they are defrosted fully and heat up a griddle pan to a medium-high heat. Place your burger on the grill and allow it to cook for 6-7 minutes on each side, then remove and allow it to rest for a few minutes before serving in a toasted burger bun or with your favourite sides.

Recipe Notes

I usually wrap up in cling film like below and store in the freezer until required.

I almost always serve these with my healthy chips. Get the recipe for those here.
