Recipe : Stilton Turkey Burgers

I've been cooking again :)

I originally planned to follow the Weight Watchers recipe for Chicken Burgers with Crumbled Blue Cheese, but as is becoming the norm I made a few changes.

The recipe was flawed from the start as they didn't have any mince chicken in my local Tesco, so I settled for Turkey instead.

I used:
633g of Turkey Mince, approx 50g of Blue Stilton, 30g / 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs, 1 Dorot Chilli cube, 2 Dorot Garlic cubes, 4 finely sliced red onions, part baked Ciabatta rolls.

The method:

Pre-heat your grill to a medium heat.
Add turkey, breadcrubs, onions, cheese, garlic and chilli into a bowl...

Combine the ingredients *hint wet your hands to prevent sticking*

and separate into four thick patties...

Place under the grill, turning occasionally, until fully cooked. Mine took approximately 30 minutes but this does depend on the thickness. I suggest cutting the burgers in half to check that they are cooked through.

Serve the burgers in your Ciabatta rolls, add any sauce/salad that you require...


The original Weight Watchers recipe gives 9 Pro Points for each burger, I think mine will be slightly less as I skipped the sauces out and used Ciabatta rolls.

This is the first time that I've made burgers and I can't believe how quick and easy it was! I'm now super excited for the 2012 BBQ season!


  1. Nom indeed!
    I have no idea if it would make it more fattening I'm afraid, when you buy your other cheese compare the fat & calories to the stilton, you'll probably be able to find a similar one xx

  2. It was divine :) Good luck if you give it a go xx

  3. Oh NOM! These burgers look absolutely delicious. I think I may have to try it out, but substitute the stilton for another cheese as I find it's a bit strong for my taste, would it make it more fattening if I used another cheese?



  4. yummy! this has made my mouth water!! must try this
