Phil Vickery's turkey burgers take just 20 minutes to mix up and shape into patties, then just barbecue for 10 minutes or you could use a griddle pan over the stove if the weather takes a turn


  • 500g minced British turkey
  • 2tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 2tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2tbsp Worcester sauce
  • 2 heaped tbsp tinned sweetcorn, well drained
  • 4-5 tbsp natural dried breadcrumbs
  • ½ medium egg white, lightly beaten
  • Salt and ground white pepper

'I have discovered a great trick. If you add a little mayonnaise to the raw mix it really helps to keep the burger beautifully juicy and tasty.'

Phil Vickery, celebrity chef


  1. Mix the turkey, mayo, basil, Worcester sauce and egg white together into a bowl.
  2. Add the seasonings, sweetcorn and bread crumbs and mix well again.
  3. Leave to chill for 30 mins.
  4. Mould into 4 or 6 balls, then flatten slightly into small patties and refrigerate until ready to cook.
  5. To cook, lightly spray or brush the patties with a little olive oil then oil the BBQ bars just before putting on the burgers.
  6. Cook for 3-4 minutes then turn 90° to give a criss-cross effect. Cook again for 3-4 mins. Turn over and cook for a further 3-4 mins.
  7. Serve the burgers in a soft tortilla wrap with a little chopped crunchy lettuce, sliced ripe tomato and another spoonful of mayo or your favourite relish.
