  • 2 slices day-old wholemeal bread, crusts removed, torn
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) skim milk
  • 450g chicken mince or turkey breast mince
  • 1/4 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley leaves, finely chopped, plus whole leaves to serve
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 cup nicoise or kalamata olives, pitted
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 250g green beans, sliced lengthways, blanched
  • 4 butter lettuce leaves
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 2 soft-boiled eggs, peeled, halved
  • 4 anchovy fillets, drained


  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 180°C. Soak bread in milk for 5 minutes, then drain. Gently squeeze bread to remove excess liquid, then place in a bowl with mince, onion, garlic, parsley, zest and cumin. Roughly chop 2 tablespoons olives and add to the mince. Season and mix with damp hands until combined. Shape into 4 thick burger patties. Chill for 30 minutes.
  • Step 2
    Place an ovenproof frypan over medium-high heat. Brush patties with oil. Cook for 2 minutes each side until browned. Bake for 8-10 minutes until cooked through.
  • Step 3
    Arrange beans, lettuce, tomato, patties, egg, anchovies, parsley and remaining olives on plates, then season and serve.
