Tasty Turkey Bites

This is one Aine made for her family. I was lucky enough to be there the day she made them as they really are seriously good. They are a healthy family dinner and are fairly inexpensive and easy to make. You can even prepare them the night before then cook them when the next day when needed. They also freeze really well and can be cooked under the grill from frozen if needed. You can change the turkey mince to chicken, pork or even beef mince though try use chicken or turkey as they are a lot healthier.

Why not make them bigger and make delicious burgers. Simply cook a little longer then place between a toasted bap or burger bun with lettuce, tomato, onion and a sweet chilli sauce or mayonnaise. To make sweet chilli mayonnaise, mix 3 parts mayonnaise with 1 part sweet chilli sauce.



200g turkey mince

15-20g cauliflower

1/2 inch piece of ginger finely chopped

2 garlic cloves finely chopped

1 tsp Thai 7 spice (available in most supermarkets)

1 tbsp soy sauce

Oil for frying



Add all the ingredients to a bowl and mix thoroughly using clean hands.


Shape them into little burger/patty shapes, trying to get as much of the air out as possible. I got about 9 or 10 from the mix.


Heat rapeseed or olive oil in a pan over a medium/high heat and add the patties


Cook for around 2 minutes and then turn, cooking for another 2 minutes. They should be a golden brown colour on each side.


Reduce the heat and cover the pan. This will finish off the patties without drying them out. They’ll need to be cooked for another 6 minutes or so.


Turn them every so often to ensure they don’t burn or stick. Ensure they’re fully cooked by using a food thermometer or by cutting into one and checking there’s no pink meat.


Serve as a school lunch with raw carrot batons, raw mixed peppers and your favourite dip. Or have them for dinner with some rice and a nice salad. They’re delicious hot or cold.
