Baked Courgette Fries and Turkey Burgers

A couple days ago I had the sudden urge to do some cooking. I’ve had a lot on recently and since moving back home I haven’t done as much cooking as I would have liked to. So I flicked through my Hemsley and Hemsley cook book and found these Baked Courgette Fries, I knew I had to make them! I also made turkey burgers for my family and chicken in an Encona BBQ marinade for me!

Baked Courgette Fries

2 Large Courgettes
50g Ground Almonds
30g Parmesan
Some Herbs and Spices
1 Egg
Sea Salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 220C
  2. Slice the ends off the courgettes, halve them and slice each half lengthways. Slice each length into small strips, a bit like french fries. I kept mine a bit larger than french fries, similar to frozen oven chips you get from the shops. Season with sea salt.
  3. Mix the ground almonds, parmesan and herbs and spices in a bowl.
  4. Beat the egg, dip each piece of courgette into the egg, then into the almond, parmesan and spice mix to coat evenly.
  5. Lay the courgette fries in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes until golden brown.
  6. Enjoy them with a turkey burger or some chicken!

Turkey Burgers:
The following recipe makes 5 burgers.

4 Turkey Breasts
4 slices of bread, add more or less as you feel required
1 onion
1 egg
Some season-all

  1. Put everything in a food processor and blitz until it is all well mixed.
  2. Grease a tray and take a ball of the mixture and pat out to make burgers.
  3. Cook in the oven for 20 minutes.
  4. Enjoy with your courgette fries!
These courgette fries are super delicious and I could literally devour a plate of these!
