  • Place the turkey, mayonnaise, basil, Worcestershire sauce and egg white together into a bowl.
  • Mix really well, then add the seasoning, and dried breadcrumbs and mix well again.
  • Leave to chill for 30 minutes, so the mixture can tighten, once the breadcrumbs reconstitute themselves.
  • Mould into 4 or 6 balls, then flatten slightly into small patties. Place a small piece of Gruyere cheese in the centre and reform into a ball and flatten again.
  • Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, than add the burgers, cook for a couple of minutes, then flip over and cook for a further 3-4 minutes.
  • Combine all ingredients for the relish and serve with the burgers on top of toasted slices of ciabatta and lettuce.
