Monster Turkey Burger in an Olive Bread Bun

The dreaded discount fridge had a half kilo box of Turkey thigh mince at 88p the other day. Clearly I thought better of such expensive meat and left it there…… ( Just call me Boris Johnson! - I’m lying! ) So here’s another take on Sue’s Monster Burger, with Olive Bread this time and still under our £4 budget….

Burger Ingredients:-

½ a large Onion, finely diced
Dried Mint
Chilli flakes
Turkey Mince
Salt & Pepper to season


(1) Mix everything well in a bowl.
(2) Form into four thick burgers.
(3) Fry gently on both sides until cooked through, but not too long as you will dry them out.

Gluten free Olive Bread Bun


240g Self raising Gluten free flour
½ tsp Salt
The chopped leaves from 2 sprigs of fresh Rosemary
240ml Milk
a hand fill of chopped Green Olives
4tbsp Mayonnaise


(1) Mix everything together.
(2) Add to a square bun tin.
(3) Cook in a pre-heated over at 180c for 40 minutes.

Filling Ingredients:-

8 rashers of streaking Bacon, grilled
4 Slices of Mature Cheddar Cheese
1 Large Onion sliced
Lettuce and sliced Tomatoes

Build your burger!

(1) Slice the bun in half.
(2) Spread Mayonnaise in the bottom slice.
(3) Add a layer of Lettuce.
(4) Place sliced Onions over the Lettuce followed by sliced Tomatoes.
(5) Layer Bacon and the Cheese slices over the burger and then place under the grill to melt the Cheese.
(6)) Put the burger on top of the Tomatoes and place the top half of the bun over and secure with a skewer.
(7) Eat – fall asleep in a heap!

We made Onion Rings, a root vegetable Coleslaw and chips as sides and added a bit of salad. We will be eating cold burger today as we simply couldn’t have eaten it all in one sitting!
