Paleo Recipe

This is a quick recipe that is great for a lunch. Turkey mince is a great source of iron, zinc, potassium and phosphorus. Turkey is also considered a good source of vitamin B6 and niacin, which are both essential for the body’s energy production.

Serves 2-3 people

Preparation Time: 5 Minutes

Cook Time: 18-20 Minutes

  • Lard for cooking
  • 500g turkey thigh mince (7% fat)
  • 4 rashers of unsmoked bacon, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped small
  • Handful of fresh cress
  • 1 medium sized free range egg
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


1. In a large bowl, mix together the turkey mince, bacon slices, chopped garlic, cress, egg, salt and pepper. Combine well with your hands, then shape into 6 burger patties.

2. Heat the oil in a frying pan over a high heat, then cook the burgers for about 9 minutes each side or until cooked through. You may need to turn the heat down to medium towards the end to ensure the middle is cooked well.
