Notes

TIP: Ask your butcher for lean turkey breast mince. Alternatively, buy skinless turkey breast steaks, trim any fat and process, in 250g batches, in a food processor until it reaches a mince texture. Take care not to over process the mince or it will turn to paste. VARIATION: Add a pinch dried chilli flakes to mince in Step 1 or swap turkey for lean chicken breast mince.
