Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Thanksgiving Burger

Preheat the oven to 240°C/ 220°C (fan)/ 475°F/ Gas 9

Chop the cranberries finely

Crumble the blue cheese into small pieces

Reserve 2 tbsp (4 tbsp) of crumbled blue cheese for stuffing the patties (step 3)

2 Thanksgiving Burger

Set aside a clean board or plate for shaping the patties later

Add the turkey mince and chopped cranberries to a mixing bowl

Season with 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) of salt and 1/4 tsp (1/2 tsp) of pepper

Wet your hands, mix thoroughly and shape into 2 (4) balls

3 Thanksgiving Burger

Make a shallow indent with your fingers into the centre of each ball and stuff with 1 tbsp of the reserved blue cheese

Cover the indent with the mince by folding it over

Pat and shape the stuffed patties into 2cm thick burgers -- covering the cheese completely

4 Thanksgiving Burger

Heat a wide pan (preferably non stick) with 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) of vegetable oil over a medium heat

Once hot, add the burgers and cook for 3 min on each side, or until coloured, then reserve the pan

Transfer them to an oven tray and cook in the oven for an additional 8 min, or until cooked through

5 Thanksgiving Burger

Meanwhile, add the remaining crumbled blue cheese and vinegar to a small bowl then mash together with a spoon into a rough paste

Mix in the mayonnaise, 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) of milk and a pinch of pepper - this is your blue cheese dressing

6 Thanksgiving Burger

Wash and dry the corn salad thoroughly

Once cooked through, remove the burgers from the oven to rest until serving

7 Thanksgiving Burger

Meanwhile, wipe down the burger pan and return to a medium-high heat

Slice the brioche in half widthways

Add the halves cut-side-down in the pan and cook for 2-3 min, until toasted

Tip: Do this in batches if needed!
