Every year, in a bid to be somewhat original (never works) I do my best to come up with a new spin on a Christmas Dinner, this year with my twist on a perfect Christmas Burger recipe.
So what is a Christmas Burger I hear you ask? Well, it is really taking the essence of Christmas Dinner and using its ingredients to make a winner of a Turkey dinner.
This recipe is three really, using the vegetables to make a wonderful coleslaw and of course no burger is any better than when it is with chips.
Then we take the wonder that is bread stuffing, and add it to turkey breast mince to make a mega Christmas Dinner Burger, never before seen.
Happy Christmas to one and all, looking forward to see if you can create this bad-boy with your leftovers this year!

directions for my christmas burger ecipe
Very much like a Christmas dinner, we are going to build it, and cook it, in stages.
Pre-heat your oven to 200C/400F.
1. Lets start off with the chips. Cut the potatoes up in to chips, and place in a baking tray. Cover in oil and salt and ensure they are thoroughly coated.
2. Place into the oven to cook for 1 hour, or until there are the crispiest chips you've ever made.
Next up, we will make the burger.
Put your griddle pan onto heat, for approximately 15mins, until it is screaming hot.
So what does every good Christmas meal need? Stuffing of course.
3. Grated the white bread to a breadcrumb and add chopped sage leaves and a finely chopped red onion.
4. Chop up the back finely and add to the mix, along with the Turkey Mince.
Mix together thoroughly, until completely incorporated, with some salt and pepper.
Make three Christmas Burgers out if the mix!
5. Fry the burgers on the griddle pan for 10mins each side, turning every 5mins so as not to burn.
6. After the chips have cooked for 40mins, place the burgers in to finish their cooking.
Don't worry, they will stay most because of that lovely bacon we placed inside.
Next up, we need to make the coleslaw.
7. Using a grater, grate the carrot and parsnip into a bowl.
8. Chop up the Brussels sprouts finely and add to the other vegetables.
9. Add in the mayo, salt and pepper and mix thoroughly.
10. Put the gravy of your choice on to heat for the last 15mins of cooking.
Now, we build it!
11. Cut a burger bun in half and toast on the griddle pan.
12. On the bottom half, add a few tablespoons of the coleslaw mix.
13. Put the burger on top, along with a little spoonful of gravy.
Add the top bun, and serve with the chops and a little gravy on the side for the dipping.
