Competition: BritMums Lean on Turkey Competition- Spiced Turkey Burgers with Avocado Relish
Hey guys. So Britmums and Lean on Turkey have teamed together to host their "Lean on Turkey" recipe competition, the prize of which for 6 very lucky people are £250 and a personal masterclass with no other than Marco Pierre White!! I thought I would enter one of my favourite, summery turkey recipes- which are these very simple turkey burgers! Looking outside the window, it isn't really barbeque weather- but i'm really hoping the weather will perk up again soon! The competition is open until the 11th June, and you must be a food blogger to enter. Heres the link, and hope you enjoy! If the people need to contact me if they have chosen this as a winner, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Turkey Burgers with Avocado Relish (serves 4)
6 spring onions, finely chopped
1 tbsp Curry paste (preferably Korma)
500g turkey breast mince
Salt and pepper
1 ripe avocado, diced
6 cherry tomatoes, quartered
¼ red onion, finely diced
1 tbsp freshly chopped coriander
Squeeze of fresh lemon
½ tsp Worchester sauce
Couple of drops of tabasco
Salt and pepper to taste
4 x Burger Baps
2 tbsp sunflower oil (for cooking)
1. Mix together the burger ingredients in a mixing bowl until well combined (this is the easiest to do with your hands. Form the mince into 4 burgers, put on a plate, and keep in the fridge for 15 minutes (this helps the burgers keep their shape whilst cooking).
2. Mix together all the relish ingredients in a bowl, season to taste, and set aside.
3. Preheat the oven to 200C. Put a large frying pan or griddle pan onto a high heat with the sunflower oil, and fry the burgers for 2 minutes each side. Place the cooked burgers on a tray and in the oven for 10 minutes.
4. Serve the turkey burgers in floury white baps, topped with the avocado relish, and with salad and fries/wedges if you like.
*if you are cooking on the barbeque, just put the turkey burgers onto the barbie, and turn them ever couple of minutes, until they are no longer pink in the middle and serve.
