Now I know that burgers aren’t typically festive, but this is my blog and my rules! This Christmas Dinner Burger is perfect fodder to get you into the holiday spirit, with all of your favourite flavours of a Christmas dinner packed neatly in a bun.
Lets start from the bottom…
The turkey patty is well season and is smuggling some tasty brie in it, that is then topped off with a thin layer of stuffing. A generous splodge of cranberry sauce is layered with some crunchy parsnip crisps and then smothered in some sprout slaw. All nestled within a lightly toasted brioche bun.
I’m not sure about you guys, but I rarely have turkey on Christmas day, there are just tastier meats to be having! So this Christmas Dinner burger will give you that festive fix you need.
In this recipe I have used my Cranberry Sauce with Port and Orange because it gives a really nice richness to the burger, but of course, you can use shop brought if you are short on time.
To cook the turkey patties, I baked them in small pie tins. This not only helps them keep their shape, but also stops all of the melting brie from escaping and keeps them juicy. I also used chef rings to form the stuffing, mainly for neatness, you can of course mould with your hands if you don’t have any.
Every bite of this Christmas Dinner Burger is full of rich and tasty goodness. And, if you are having turkey for Christmas dinner, you can make this burger with any leftovers, just substitute the burger patty for cold cut slices. Winner winner, turkey dinner!
