  4. Place each ball onto a board sprinkled with breadcrumbs, gently press each ball into a flat patty shape, and cover both sides with breadcrumbs.
  5. Oven bake patties for 15 to 20 minutes, or until cooked through.
  6. Place each cooked patty onto the base of a sliced bread roll and top with lettuce, tomato and cucumber.



  • Coriander can be used to give the patties a Thai flavour.
  • Add extra salad ingredients, such as canned beetroot slices, pineapple rings, grated carrot, reduced fat cheese or roast capsicum, for a ‘deluxe’ GREEN burger.
  • Lean pork or beef mince can be used instead of chicken. If using beef, omit the grated apple.
  • For extra flavour spread the roll with onion relish.
