There’s sunshine at last! I can feel a smile spread across my face at the prospect of soaking up some vitamin D. The barbecue has grown dusty with lack of use this year but no longer. This weekend I will endeavour to BBQ everything, well, you never know when the next sunny spell might be. Barbecued bananas for breakfast anyone? Perhaps kedgeree with barbecued sardines on top? Or for dinner my favourite, a juicy burger with all the trimmings.

Sainsbury’s asked me to help Ian, a father of 3, make a family barbecue really special. Sainsbury’s recipe for lemon and coriander turkey burgers really hits the spot; filling, tasty, easy to make, low in fat and they won’t break the bank. My sons gobble these burgers up in no time at all with the youngest shouting out ‘again!’ at the top of his voice. Rare praise from Mr Fussy. If you want you can add a bit of magic by popping cheese into the centres or use turkey steaks for super speedy burgers. And to feed a crowd make the ingredients go a little further and make kebabs. I’ve been using this recipe to make meatballs, but now the sun’s out we’re back to the burgers! Here’s the film:
