Gorgeous Burger Recipe with Apple & Carrot Coleslaw

Not strictly crafting as we all know it, but these were so lovely I just have to share this recipe with someone. I found it in a newspaper today and thought I would give it a go. I have never made burgers before and Wow, wish I had made these. I hate coleslaw but like carrot/apple and mayonnaise separately. I loved it. More to the point, my children ate the burgers!!! At £1.60 for 450g of minced turkey, it was a cheap but nutritious dinner too as I got 8 burgers out of the pack.

450g minced turkey
1 egg
Breadcrumbs (optional but I had a load in the freezer, so used em. About 3 heaped dessertspoons)
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
1 tbsp brown sauce (HP)
1 tbsp English mustard
1 medium red onion

Finely chop red onion and sweat in a pan for 3/4 mins. Leave to cool. The recipe calls for rapeseed oil, but I didn't have any so used Clover!!!

Add turkey and all of the other stuff in a bowl and mix.

Cover with clingfilm and leave for an hour. Then shape into burgers and chill (that's not you chilling by the way, tis' the burgers) for about 10 mins. You can grease a tray/pirex and sling em on that.

Heat frying pan with oil (again it says rapeseed, but I used veg oil) and cook until brown on either side or however you would normally cook your burgers.


Peel & grate 2 medium carrots

Grate one apple (I used a braeburn)

Put some fresh coriander leaves in it and season. I put a ton of black pepper in it.

Then put as much mayonnaise/salad cream in it until it looks like you want it to look.

Serve with buttered French bread or potato wedges.

I promise it's really nice. You can pretty much change this to whatever you want as well.
