These turkey burgers use ingredients you should still have lurking in the fridge so they’re a great budget option. And while devouring the remaining Christmas pudding for breakfast isn’t the best start to the day, you don’ t have to waste a moment’s guilt on enjoying as much turkey as you like.
A 4oz serving of turkey contains just 100 calories but packs a huge 32 gram protein punch. It’s leaner than beef so makes a perfect low-fat, high-protein burger. Turkey is also a rich source of the essential amino acid tryptophan which helps you sleep. It contains selenium, omega-3, B3 and B6, plus turkey can help keep insulin levels within healthy levels.
Note: make sure the turkey is thoroughly reheated until piping hot and is only reheated once.
You can serve these as a main meal, delicious with coleslaw and sweet potato wedges. Or enjoy them in a sandwich/wrap/pitta/wholewheat bun adding a combination of mustard, red onions, avocado, rocket or tomato as a healthy lunch option. High in fibre and nutrition, low on calories, big on flavour. Can you really ask more from a delicious festive meal?
Turkey is also one of the best foods for fitness, so why not shake away those Christmas cobwebs with a refreshing gym session, then tuck into this muscle-building burger while you catch up on some more festive telly!
Just had these tonight with leftover mashed potato and slated nuts in a wrap with leftover cranberry sauce. Delicious and tasted very healthy too.
wish we had leftover turkey as these look lush but we bought a crown and it's all gone now :(
These look great! I may try them later today as we bought a 6kg turkey so have masses of leftovers.
