Turkey Burgers with Sweet Potato Fries

This recipe serves 2 adults and 2 children.


For the sweet potato fries:

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, cut into spears
  • Rapeseed oil, for frying

For the burgers:

  • 400g (14oz) free-range turkey, minced
  • 1 egg
  • 60g (1 cup) breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp grated root ginger
  • black pepper, to season

To serve:

  • 2 large and 2 small burger buns
  • 8 cherry tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 5 leaves iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 1 sweet white onion, finely sliced
  • Egg-Free Aioli (see below)


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4.
  2. Place the sweet potatoes on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with a little rapeseed oil, then roast for 35 minutes, until the spears are soft and cooked through.
  3. While the potatoes are cooking, make the burgers by adding all of the ingredients to a large bowl and, using your hands, mixing well.
  4. Divide the meat into 3 equal parts. Shape 2 parts into large burgers for the adults. Divide the last part into two and shape into burgers for the children.
  5. To serve, lightly toast the buns and place a burger on top of each. Garnish with tomato, lettuce, onion and aioli. Serve with the softly roasted sweet potato fries.

Egg-Free Aioli

Makes 1 small jar

Raw eggs should not be given to babies and, personally, I am not a fan either. However, I really like to have a dip for healthy fries, chicken or even a salad wrap. This is my version of an egg-free mayo-type sauce and it is delicious! I make it when I need it and use it fresh, although it keeps in the fridge covered for a few days.


  • 125ml (½ cup) Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a bowl and stir well.
  2. Keep refrigerated (not suitable for freezing).
