Cheesy Mexican Turkey Burgers

Recipe by Shuzbud
READY IN: 35mins
YIELD: 4 burgers




  • Start the barbecue or preheat the grill.
  • Remove the core and seeds from the tomato and finely dice the flesh.
  • In a bowl, add to the tomato: the turkey, mexican cheese, paprika and fresh coriander. Mix well.
  • Divide the mixture into four and shape into burgers. If you have time, cover and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes to let the flavours blend.
  • Place a sheet of foil over the barbecue or grill, or use a baking sheet if preferred- because these burgers are made from a low fat meat, they can break up if not handled carefully, so the foil helps them to stay together. Handle and flip them with care.
  • Place the burgers on the barbecue or under a grill, on the foil or baking sheet.
  • Cook for 15 minutes, flipping regularly.
  • If using a barbecue, remove the foil at this point- after 15 minutes- so the burgers pick up the chargrilled flavour in the next 10 minutes.
  • Cook for a further 10 minutes (whether using a barbeque or a grill) or until completely cooked through.
  • Serve with salsa if desired, on burger buns, Mexican rice, or whatever takes your fancy!
