Part of the reason these Slimming World Syn Free Tikka Turkey Burgers are so quick and easy is because of how we cooked them.

Slimming World Syn Free Tikka Turkey Burgers

A couple of weeks ago, Tefal sent over an OptiGrill, so we’ve been putting our #GrillSkills to the test, and in the process came up with these Slimming World Syn Free Tikka Turkey Burgers!

We cooked these burgers on our Tefal OptiGrill, which senses how thick the meat is, and cooks it to your liking automatically. How amazing is that?!

Sounds a little too good to be true… right? That’s what we thought, but oh no – it makes it much easier to grill burgers, steaks, and chicken!

We’ve made a few recipes using the Tefal Optigrill, and I can honestly say it has given perfect results each time.

It’s pretty damn impressive – which is something we never say about anything. We’re very hard ladies to please, especially when it comes to kitchen gadgets!

It’s nice to not have to worry about ruining a really expensive steak, or undercooking things like burgers. Especially ones made from poultry mince.

You have to be very careful, and make sure they’re cooked through, especially if you have children.

The Tefal Optigrill is also handy to use when you fancy grilled food, but don’t fancy getting the BBQ out. With the heatwave we’ve we’ve just experienced, it’s even too hot to BBQ outside!

The bonus is that the Optigrill is ridiculously easy to clean. The plates come off, and are dishwasher safe.

Step 2

In a large bowl mix the Turkey Mince with all the other burger ingredients (Not the Frylight, Rocket, Tomatoes and Rolls.)

If your mince is dry then add the egg. If not see what it’s like after you’ve mixed the burger ingredients. If it needs binding, add the egg a little at a time. You don’t want the mix to be too sloppy.
