Ingredients

  • 500g chicken breast, coarsely minced in a food processor, or turkey mince
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 142ml pot soured cream
  • 1 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • Zest and juice of 1 large lemon
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 4-6 soft buns
  • Radicchio lettuce and little
  • gem lettuce leaves, to serve
  • 1 avocado, thinly sliced
  • 100g blue cheese, such as Gorgonzola, crumbled

Method

  1. In a bowl, mix the mince, chopped onion, mustard, 2 tablespoons soured cream, ketchup and the zest. With wet hands, season and shape into 4-6 burgers. Chill the burgers for 1 hour to firm up. Toss the red onion with the lemon juice in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Heat a griddle pan until hot. Brush the burgers with the oil and griddle for about 5 minutes each side, until golden and cooked through.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium. To serve, split the buns and toast on the griddle pan. Spoon a tablespoon of the soured cream on each bun base and top with the lettuces, burgers, then the avocado, onion and cheese. Place under the grill for a few minutes until the cheese is melted.
