Turkey patties with maple bacon

Breakfast: Morning, Noon & Night

These pair up well with any type of eggs you fancy, from scrambled to boiled. Maple bacon can turn into addiction. You have been warned.


Quantity Ingredient
2 slices stale white bread
450g minced turkey
1 garlic clove, grated
1 egg
4 spring onions, finely sliced
2 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
oil, for frying
8 rashers streaky bacon
2 tablespoons maple syrup
eggs, cooked any style, to serve


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. For the patties, soak the bread in a bowl of cold water for 1 minute, then squeeze out the water and crumble the bread into a large bowl. Add the turkey, garlic, egg, spring onions, parsley and seasoning, and combine everything together. With wet hands, shape the mixture into 8 golf balls and flatten into patties using the palm of your hand.
  2. Add enough oil to shallow fry the patties in to a large frying pan. Heat the oil and then fry the patties – in batches if necessary – for about 4–5 minutes on each side until they are cooked through and golden brown all over.
  3. While the patties are frying, prepare the bacon. Line a baking tray with baking parchment and lay on the bacon. Bake for about 15 minutes until crispy and just beginning to brown.
  4. Keep an eye on the patties as the bacon cooks, and when the patties are done remove them from the pan and set aside to drain on some kitchen towel.
  5. Take the bacon out of the oven and, using a pastry brush, coat the bacon with the maple syrup. Put the bacon back in the oven for 3–5 minutes until it has browned and is sticky. Meanwhile, cook some eggs in your preferred style; you may have to remove the bacon from the oven and set it to one side with the patties for a few minutes while you finish cooking your eggs.
  6. Serve the turkey patties and maple bacon with the eggs.
