- We love these silicone utensils – they come in lots of colours to suit every kitchen!
- A balloon whisk to match
- Mixing bowls – we use these glass ones as they’re very durable – and perfect for melting chocolate in this recipe, but we also recommend these stackable stainless steel ones with airtight lids and these plastic nesting ones!
- Digital scales to weigh everything out super accurately
- A nice big sharp knife – We recommend this one, this one and this one!
- A cast iron casserole dish that will be large and sturdy enough to hold hot oil like this one – these are really versatile pans that you can use for lots of recipes, both on the hob and in the oven, so it’s worth having on in your kitchen!
Directions0/0 steps made
- Mix together 150ml yoghurt, lemon juice and milk
- Add turkey and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes – but overnight is best if possible!
- Mix flour, cornflour, garlic granules, onion granules, sage, salt, pepper and paprika together to make the coating for the turkey
- Dip turkey breasts into flour mixture, then place on a wire rack
- Deep fry at about 170°C until browned and cooked through – this should take about 8 minutes
- For the coleslaw mix together the remaining yoghurt, mayonnaise, sprouts, carrots, onion, honey, garlic granules mustard and season with salt and pepper to taste
- Now you have your fillings, assemble your burger; add the slaw, turkey burger and any extra toppings and sauces you like – we added brie, bacon, cranberry sauce, sausage stuffing patty, gravy and pigs in blankets!
- Make sure that your turkey breasts are of equal size and thickness – trim them down and bash with a rolling pin/meat mallet under clingfilm to get them more uniform in size
- Make sure that your turkey is cooked through when you fry it – we have suggested 8 minutes but this will vary depending on the thickness of your turkey breast so make sure that you check!
- Always toast your burger buns! This way juices from the meat or sauce won’t make it soggy and fall apart
- You can fry the turkey in advance and reheat on a wire rack in the oven if you like
- The coleslaw will make enough for 10+ portions so you can save it and have it with other festive meals too! It will last in the fridge for around 3 days
- Please note that the nutritional value is calculated based on the turkey burger, slaw and a brioche bun – please add calories for the optional toppings individually
