Honey Turkey & Red Pepper Burgers

Featuring Newman’s Own® Sticky Honey BBQ Sauce

Turkey mince makes mouthwatering burgers and is far lower in fat than ground beef or lamb. Add extra salad to the buns such as sliced tomatoes, onion rings or cucumber slices according to personal taste.

Preparation time: 20 minutes (plus marinating)

Cooking time: 10-15 minutes

Serves: 4

Per serving: 517kcals, 13.4g fat, 3.6g saturated fat




1lb 2oz (500 g) turkey mince
1 small red onion, peeled and finely chopped
1 large open mushroom, peeled and finely chopped
6 tbsp (90 ml) Newman’s Own Sticky Honey BBQ Sauce
2 red peppers, deseeded and cut into thick wedges
4 sesame seeded burger buns, split in half and lightly toasted
2 in (5 cm) piece of cucumber, sliced
4 lettuce leaves


1. Put the mince in a bowl, add the chopped onion and mushroom and stir until mixed. Add 3 tablespoons of the Honey Sauce and stir again until evenly combined. Shape the mixture into 4 burgers, pressing the meat together to give a firm shape – a round pastry cutter or special burger press makes the task easy.

2. Put the burgers on a plate, spread over the remaining Honey Sauce and cover with cling film. Chill in the fridge for several hours or overnight.

3. Grill or barbecue the burgers over medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until they are cooked all the way through, turning over half way and brushing or basting with any of the sauce left in the dish.

4. Grill the pepper wedges for about 5 minutes or until lightly scorched.

5. To assemble the burgers, layer up lettuce, pepper wedges, cucumber and burgers in the split buns and serve hot.

Tip: if you prefer, you can make 8 small burgers and serve them in rolls or small buns as finger food.
