    Turkey & guacamole burgers

    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 10 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes

    Serves: 4


    500g pack turkey thigh mince
    Good few dashes Tabasco sauce
    1 red onion, ½ coarsely grated and ½ diced
    1 lime, zest and juice
    28g pack coriander, leaves and stalks separated, stalks finely chopped, leaves chopped
    2 garlic cloves, crushed or finely grated
    1 Waitrose 1 Perfectly Ripe Large Avocado
    1 red pepper, deseeded and diced
    1 tbsp olive oil
    4 monterey jack cheese slices
    4 wholemeal or ciabatta rolls, halved and griddled or toasted


    1. Tip the turkey mince into a bowl and season. Add the Tabasco sauce, coarsely grated ½ onion, lime zest, coriander stalks and 1½ crushed or grated garlic cloves. Mix to combine, then shape into 4 patties, about 1cm thick. Put on a plate; set aside in the fridge.

    2. Meanwhile, in a bowl, roughly mash the avocado with a fork and season. Stir in the remaining garlic, the juice of ½ lime and most of the coriander leaves; set aside. In another bowl, toss the pepper with the diced ½ onion and remaining juice of ½ lime; season and set aside.

    3. Coat the burgers with a little oil. Fry in a hot frying pan (or on a griddle or barbecue) for 5 minutes. Flip and cook for 2 minutes, then top each with a cheese slice. Cook for 3 minutes more, until no pink meat remains and the juices run clear. Pile into the rolls with the guacamole, pepper mixture and remaining coriander.

    Cook’s tip

    Coarsely grating the onion is an easy way to incorporate it into the burger mixture without needing to chop it finely.
