Here is how my low fat, low calorie burger turned out. I made homemade chips from Gino D'acammpo Buonissimo cookbook, got to love Gino!.
Recipe for turkey and spring onion burgers.
500g chicken or turkey mince
6 spring onions
3 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley
zest and juice of 1 lime
low fat cooking spray
salt and freshly ground pepper
4 medium burger buns
2 tablespoon tomato ketchup
salad leaved, tomato and cucumber,
1) Mix together the mince, spring onions, garlic parsley, lime zest and seasoning. Shape into four patties then heat a non stick frying pan and spray with the low fat cooking spray. Fry the patties for 5-10 minutes on each side until cooked through.
2) Meanwhile, split the buns and toast lightly. Spread each halfway with 1/2 tablespoon of tomato ketchup then arrange the salad on the base of each bun and place a burger on top. Squeeze a little lime juice over, replace the top half of the bun and serve.
I'm not usually a low fat kinda girl, just trying to lose some pounds for my 25th birthday. I love nothing more than tucking into a high fat, high calorie lovely burger. I visited an American style diner in Telford, last year that specialised in calorific treats, the Daily Mail sent a reporter to sample burgers from Oscar's diner 5,000 calorie burger so I had to sample it too!.
