Woman's Weekly recipe Who said burgers were bad for you? This healthy meal of turkey burgers and homemade oven chips contains less than 10g fat per person.


  • 500g(1lb) Maris Piper potatoes
  • 4tsp sunflower oil
  • 500g (1lb) turkey breast mince
  • 4 spring onions, trimmed and finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed, optional
  • 2tsp lemon thyme leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

To serve

  • Good handful of salad leaves and 2 cherry tomatoes per person
  • 1tbsp reduced-fat coleslaw per person

Woman's Weekly cookery editor Sue McMahon says: A non-stick cooking liner is a boon for low-fat cooking as it prevents the chips from sticking to the tin.


  1. Set the oven to gas mark 7 or 220°C. Cut unpeeled potatoes into wedges and put in a roasting tin. Add 3tsp oil and stir to coat potato. Roast for 40-50 mins, turning after 30 mins.
  2. Mix the turkey mince with the spring onion, garlic, if using, thyme and seasoning. Shape into 4 burgers 10-11cm (4-4½in) in diameter; use a cutter as a guide. Chill for 30 mins, if possible.
  3. Heat a griddle pan. Rub the rest of the oil onto both sides of each burger, then griddle them, in 2 batches, for 3-4 mins each side. Serve with the salad, tomatoes, potato wedges and coleslaw. (Not suitable for freezing).

I made these tonight and they are totally gorgeous!!! Perfect summery light meal. The burgers were scrummy and i dont even like turkey all that much!! They were a big hit with my 2yr old too!! Cheap easy meal, If you want to make it even cheaper you could buy normal turkey mince rather than turkey breast mince as its about &#194&#1631 cheaper, i did this and they came out perfect!! Will def make this again!!
