Camembert and Cranberry Relish-Topped Turkey Burgers

A classic combination!

You will need:
1 small/medium egg
4 Tbsp breadcrumbs
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt1.5lbs/380g turkey breast mince
6 Tbsp cranberry relish (high quality if possible)
~9oz./250g Camembert cheese
4 buns or Ciabatta rolls

Yield: Approx 4 large burgers

1. Combine 1 egg, breadcrumbs, onion power, pepper, salt, with the turkey mince.

2. Divide mixture by 4 and roll each into a ball before pressing flat to desired width.

3. Fry burgers on a medium heat in a covered frying pan, flipping occasionally.

4. While burgers cook, remove the rind from the Camembert and cut into 4 equal slices.

5. Once burgers begin to brown, top each with a piece of Camembert and cover pan with a lid allowing the steam to melt the cheese.  Reduce heat (or turn it off completely, depending on how cooked your burgers are at this stage).

6. Serve on a toasted bun topped with the cranberry relish.
