SW recipe: Turkey and Tarragon Cheeseburgers

Serves 4, ready in 30 minutes, plus chilling


• 1 slice of wholemeal bread from a small 400g loaf

• 500g turkey breast fillet or turkey breast steak, cut into large chunks

• 1 garlic clove, crushed

• 1 shallot, roughly chopped

• A small handful of fresh tarragon leaves

• 180g fat-free natural cottage cheese

• 25g reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, grated

• Low-calorie cooking spray

• 4 x 60g wholemeal rolls

• 4 crisp lettuce leaves

• 2 tomatoes, sliced

• ¼ cucumber, sliced

• A small handful of snipped fresh chives

• Extra salad, to serve


1 Put the slice of bread into a food processor, whizz into breadcrumbs and tip into a bowl. Add the turkey to the processor with the garlic, shallot and tarragon and whizz until roughly chopped.

2 Return the breadcrumbs to the processor and season to taste. Whizz briefly until well mixed then transfer to a bowl. Divide into four portions, shape each one into a burger and chill for at least 1 hour.

3 Mix the cottage cheese and Cheddar in a bowl and chill. Spray the burgers with low calorie cooking spray and cook under a medium-hot grill for 15 minutes or until cooked through, turning once. Slice open the rolls and toast cut-side up on the grill for 30 seconds to 1 minute until golden. Fill each roll with lettuce, tomato, cucumber and a burger, finishing with a dollop of the cottage cheese topping. Sprinkle over the chives and serve hot with extra salad.
