Turkey Stuffed with Melting Gruyere Cheese & Fresh Tomato Relish
Lean and tasty Turkey mince makes a great alternative to traditional burgers. I prefer using leg meat to get even more delicious flavours.


  • 500g minced turkey (leg if possible)
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • 2 tbsp shop bought mayo
  • 2 tbsp Worcester sauce
  • ½ medium egg white, lightly beaten
  • 150g Gruyere cheese cut into small slices
  • 4 tbsp oil
  • salt and freshly milled black pepper
  • For the Relish
  • 5 ripe plum tomatoes, chopped into small pieces
  • ½ small red onion, very finely chopped
  • ½ tsp small red chilli, very finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp chopped coriander
  • juice 2 large limes
  • 2-3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • pinch sugar

  • Place the turkey, mayo, basil, Worcester sauce and egg white together into a bowl.
  • Mix really well, then add the seasonings, and bread crumbs 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, the flatten slightly into small patties, then place a few small pieces of cheese in the centre and reform into a ball and flatten. Seal well.
  • Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, then add the burgers, cook for a couple of minutes, then flip over and cook for a further 3-4 minutes.
  • Make up the relish and serve with the burgers.
