Think turkey burgers are dry and tasteless? Not this version! The addition of minced portobello mushrooms gives these lean burgers a juicy, meaty flavour that you and your guests will find irresistible. The patties also feature a savoury combination of shallots, mayonnaise, and rosemary, and they come together quickly thanks to the food processor. The best part is that the patties can be made up to 2 days before cooking; just wrap them up and store them in the fridge. If you don't have a food processor, you can finely chop mushroom and shallots with a sharp knife before combining with the other ingredients.
