Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 750g turkey mince
  • 75g fresh breadcrumbs
  • Flour, for binding
  • Lettuce, torn to serve
  • Vegetable oil, for brushing

For the pepper and blue cheese sauce

  • 1 strip roasted red pepper from a jar, drained
  • ½ x 200ml jar mayonnaise
  • 30g blue cheese
  • Small handful of chopped fresh flatleaf parsley

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the garlic and shallot. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until softened. Cool on kitchen paper. Put into a bowl, add the mince and breadcrumbs. Season, mix well and divide into 6. Lightly flour your hands, then shape into 6 burgers. Chill for 30 minutes, put into a Tupperware box and then into a cool box.
  2. Meanwhile, make the sauce. Chop the peppers and put into a bowl. Stir in the mayonnaise. Crumble in the blue cheese and stir well. Add the parsley and pop into a Tupperware box and put into a cool box. Put the lettuce in a separate box and put in the cool box.
  3. At the beach, light the barbecue, following the manufacturer’s instructions. Brush the grate with oil. Barbecue the burgers for 12-15 minutes, turning once, until tender. Grill the buns. Put a burger in each bun and top with lettuce and pepper and cheese sauce.
