  • Place the mince, onions, garlic and mayonnaise into a mixing bowl and using the paddle attachment mix until nice and thick and pasty. This is really important.
  • Finally add the cornflour or arrowroot, salt and pepper and really mix well again.
  • Make 4 large patties roughly 2cm thick out of half of the mix and place in parchment.
  • Cover with cling film and chill well until needed.


  • Place the mayo, chilli, mustard, onions, herbs and spinach into a liquidiser.
  • Blitz with the vinegar and a little water until you have a thick, lovely green sauce.
  • Spoon into a bowl and season really well with black pepper.
  • Add the turmeric to the breadcrumbs and mix well.
  • Next dust the patties with a little flour then brush with beaten egg, then press on a few breadcrumbs.
  • Flip over and repeat the process, then chill well.
  • Heat the oil and gently fry the sourdough on both sides, then keep warm.
  • Add a little more oil and gently cook the patties for 4-5 minutes, then flip over and cook for a further 3-4 minutes, do not overcook. Keep warm.
  • Wipe out the pan, add a little more oil and cook 4 fried eggs adding a little salt and pepper.
  • Serve the patties on the sourdough, topped with a fried egg and a good spoon of herb mayo.
  • Serve with thin chips.

Phil's Tips

  • Turkey dries out quickly, so don't overcook it.
  • If marinating turkey meat, put it in the fridge straight after you've finished, as it is highly sensitive to heat.
  • Store turkey separate from any gravy, stuffing or raw food.
  • Refrigerated turkey will keep for about one or two days. If it is already cooked, it will keep for about four days.


  • Turkey is a rich source of protein.
  • Skinless turkey is low in fat. White meat is lower in calories and has less fat than the dark meat. A typical turkey is about three quarters white meat.
  • Turkey meat is a source of iron, zinc, potassium and phosphorus.
  • It is also a source of vitamin B6 and niacin, which are both essential for the body's energy production.
  • Regular turkey consumption can help lower cholesterol levels. The meat is low-GI and can help keep insulin levels stable.
  • Turkey contains the amino acid tryptophan, which produces serotonin and plays an important role in strengthening the immune system.


  • Turkey can be high in sodium.
  • Some meat, particularly pre-packaged slices, can be processed and contain other substances.
  • Turkey skin is high in fat.
