Turkey Burgers & Sweet Potato Chips

Last night’s dinner was another new recipe for me, taken (again!) from the BBC Good Food website. It was ridiculously easy to make and super tasty.
IMG_8294Once the turkey mince, spring onion and cheese were combined, I formed them into patties using an old cookie cutter. They were smaller than your average burger, but I found that better for my daughter.
IMG_8296 I peeled the sweet potatoes (who knew they were SO difficult to peel?!) cut them (in a fashion) into chips and put them on the baking tray.

IMG_8306 I pan fried the burgers repeatedly turning them until they were cooked through.

IMG_8313Once ready, I served them with a green baby leaf salad!

The Verdict

Whilst the burgers were delicious, I discovered that neither me nor Phoebe were fans of sweet potato chips. The only other criticism I have is the amount of oil that was used. I fully expected at the end of the meal to have had a heart attack! If I were to make this dish again, I would oven grill the burgers and use a low calorie spray (or just less olive oil!) for the chips.

    I quite like the sound of these (although get your point about the oil) – have pinned and will be giving these a try at some point, thank you for sharing.

    Sweet potatoes are nicer as wedges and I coat them in olive oil and herbs. If you do it in a plastic bag you only need one teaspoon of olive oil!

    Hello! How long do you cook the sweet potatoes and what temperature? I always manage to ruin them. If the peel is neat and clean you don’t have to peel. It’s quite tasty (unless you burn them like I always do).

      I cooked them in the same way I would cook home-made chips. I have a fan oven, so I put it at 200 degrees for 30 mins in the middle of the oven. They came out just swimming in oil 🙁 I think I might need to invest in an Actifry as it uses less oil and cooks things to perfection (apparently!) x
