Nutty Turkey Burgers

This fantastic turkey burger recipe is perfect for a healthy fast meal. I normally make a batch up and freeze them so if I know I’m going to be short on time I can have a couple defrosted and pop them in the oven. Serve them up with some vegetable chips, sweet potato mash or a salad.

This recipe will make around 6 burgers and you can have them ready to cook in 5 minutes. When you make these be sure to use enough ingredients so you can make extra to freeze. I usually store mine individually in freezer bags or together separated by a square of grease proof paper (so they don’t stick together). Don’t forget if you’re freezing some burgers for later use fresh and not defrosted mince.

What you need:

  • 800g Turkey mince
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 small red pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Rosemary
  • Paprika
  • 100g chopped hazelnuts
  • 1 egg


  • Get your oven ready. Preheat to around 200c.
  • Finely chop the onion and pepper.
  • Crush and chop the garlic.
  • Pop your turkey mince into a bowl.
  • Add the chopped onion, pepper, garlic and nuts.
  • Add your chopped rosemary and paprika (up to you how much – depends how spicy you want them).
  • Get your hands in (make sure they’re clean) and mix all the ingredients together.
  • Make the mixture up into patties.
  • Pop them in the oven on a baking tray for around 20 minutes.
  • Make sure you have some burgers left over to freeze.
