leftover turkey burgers with shredded sprouts and cranberry relish
Thinking about all the leftover turkey you’re going to have real soon? Time to bookmark some ideas – try my leftover turkey burgers recipe.
Leftovers are (almost) my favourite bit – that doorstop turkey sandwich is a great thing. But what about if you fancy something a little different?
A burger can be a really obvious choice with leftover turkey from Christmas or Thanksgiving but there’s a bunch of twists in this recipe to lift it over the usual. There’s often nuts hanging around at Christmas time, so a handful will give these a bit of texture. Plus there’s a sneaky sausage centre that is not only tasty but keeps it moist.
Want to max out those leftovers? Top it with sauteed shredded Brussels Sprouts. Sweet and crunchy, these poor little things get cast aside too often. They really make it. Add cranberry sauce for the winning condiment.
Now I don’t usually care for a brioche bun in a regular beef burger, I think it’s too soft and slippery. But in a turkey burger the butteriness really helps add moisture.
So try these leftover turkey burgers and let me know what you think – or do you have a gold-plated recipe that works for you every time?
