    Ingredients

    • 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

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

    Method

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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).

    Top tip for making Turkey burgers

    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.
