Oprah's Turkey Burgers

Well I was watching Oprah the other day (not something I do often) and she had her show "my favourite things for summer" and they made these fabulous turkey burgers that apparently came from Mar-a-Lago, the restaurant at Donald Trumps hotel!
I really don't care where they came from they are really good. Just a warning though don't be tempted to put in too much lemon zest it can become a little overpowering!

1/4 cup thinly sliced spring onions
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
3 apples, peeled and finely diced
1 tbsp oil
2kg ground turkey breast
2 tbsp salt
2 tbsp black pepper
2 tsp Tabasco sauce
1 lemon, juice and zest
1/2 bunch parsley, finely chopped
1/4 cup fruit chutney

  • Saute the spring onions, celery and apple in the oil until tender, allow to cool
  • Place the turkey in a large bowl and add the sauteed items and the remaining ingredients
  • Shape into round balls, and refrigerate fro 2 hours (at least)
  • Grill in a pan or better still on the BBQ
  • Serve plain, with more fruit chutney or on a bun! Yum!!
