Turkey and Avocado Burgers – 1sp

Turkey breast mince is one of my new favourite ingredients. Whilst it may not taste of much on its own, a few 0sp additions make it truly delicious. Best of all, the 2% fat lean turkey breast mince (I’ve bought it in Sainsbury’s and in Tesco’s) is now 0sp on the new flex plan!


When trying to think of a new recipe to use this lovely mince in, I thought what could be better than pairing it with my ultimate food obsession at the moment, AVOCADO!

The result made for a delicious, moist and filling treat at only 1sp/94kcals per burger pattie. I doubled mine up and added a few accompaniments (see below) so the total for this huge burger was only 6sp (around 350kcals)

You could also serve this with a large salad and without a bun if you fancy. This would reduce the points even further.


Turkey Avocado Burger


For the burgers

Makes 10 burgers = 1sp/94kcal per burger (Flex)

500g lean turkey breast mince (2% fat)

1 medium avocado, mashed (about 100g avocado flesh)

30g fresh parmesan, grated

Handful fresh coriander, finely chopped

1 tsp onion powder and garlic salt

¼ tsp cayenne pepper

Zest of 1 lemon

30g panko breadcrumbs

Salt and pepper to taste

For the lemon mayonnaise

Serves 2 = 1sp /31kcal per person

2 tbsp lighted mayonnaise

2 tbsp lightest crème fraiche

Zest of 1 lemon and juice of ½ lemon

To accompany

½ red onion, cut into round slices

Handful of cherry tomatos, quartered and mixed with 1 chilli, handful of chopped coriander and juice of half a lemon (0sp)

Lettuce leaves

Sriracha hot sauce

2 x Warburton’s thins (3sp/99kcal each)


Pre heat the oven to 180c.

Pop all the ingredients for the burgers into a large bowl, get your hands in there and combine well. Shape the mixture into 10 burger patties and pop onto a baking tray lined with tin foil. Spray with low calorie cooking spray and pop in the oven for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile make/prepare the accompaniments. For the mayo, mix everything together in a small bowl. Then lay out the rest of the burger assembly ingredients ready so that it is quick and easy to assemble when the burgers are cooked.

You can assemble these burgers however you fancy but I started with half a Warbie thin on the bottom, topped this with a little Sriracha sauce, then a large lettuce leaf, then the first burger, a small dollop of the lemon mayo, the second burger, more lemon may then the onion and cherry tomato mix. I then topped it with the other half of the Warbie thin.

The first time I made this I served it with a large side salad and 3sp worth of the Uncle Ben’s Quinoa and Wholegrain rice topped with some more Sriracha sauce. The second time I served it with some cumin seasoned butternut squash chips for 0sp. Each was lovely but the BNS wedges are probably better if you have less points left for the day.

Either way, build your burger and enjoy while its hot!

    Made the turkey and avocado burgers tonight, had them wrapped in romaine lettuce leaves with caesar dressing and a side salad. Absolutely stunning and went down well hubby and son, neither on a diet but both said they would have them again. I Am not usually a fan of burgers but these changed my mind.

    These were an absolute hit with our family – even my super fussy 8 year old! He’s very pleased with himself for eating avocado without even realising it! Delicious 😋 SkinnyKitchen is my trusty “go to” website when I’m looking for a tasty, but healthy treat!

    These were very nice and tasty and very low in points have also made them into meatballs and made a tomato based sauce and had pasta with them and just counted the extra points
