I really do have a bit of a burger obsession at the moment, I think it must be because it is summer, but then I will still eat them in winter too. Nothing says summer like sitting outside and enjoying a meal cooked on the BBQ/grill, and luckily it is easy to make BBQ food healthy – so expect lots more burger recipes on the coming months.

Apologies for the photos of this. I always find that burgers are not the easiest things to photograph and also, we were really hungry and didn’t want to spend 30 minutes styling and shooting a recipe to then eat it late and cold. Seriously, the troubles of being a food blogger! I will add be adding better photos soon, as we eat these every couple of weeks. But seriously, the photos don’t do them justice. They are awesome!
I love using turkey mince as it is lean, juicy and full of flavour. But that doesn’t mean you can’t add in some extra flavour like these Greek burgers. Of course it has feta in it. Everything is better with feta (I think I might get that as a tattoo).
Now, you know how much I love kitchen gadgets? Well, usually I am telling you all about the bigger ones like blenders and food processors, but my love of burgers led to me getting a burger press from Kleeneze. I have wanted one of these for ages, so I was so excited to try it out. Sure, you can make the burgers with your hands, but being an ex-vegetarian, I am still not over the moon about handling meat, but also, this burger press gets the burgers in to perfect, professional looking burger shapes. You just add all your ingredients, press the plunger down and you get perfect looking burgers. It comes with a storage container too, so you can make lots ahead of time. It is a must for any burger lover!
