Bubble & Squeak Hash Browns

Mash up your left over roast potatoes
Chop up left over Brussels Sprouts
Chop up a couple of rashers of bacon into small pieces and gently fry  until crispy.  Remove from the pan leaving behind the bacon fat. Finely dice half a red onion and sauté in the bacon fat until soft and translucent, 8-10mins.  Remove from pan and allow to cool.
Melt a large knob of butter and add to your mashed roast potatoes.  Add in crispy bacon, sautéed red onion and chopped sprouts and a generous sprinkle of Garlic Butter rub.  Give it a good mix up and form into patties.
Gently fry hash brown patties over a medium low heat for a few minutes until golden brown on both sides.
Lets talk Turkey!!

I like to use shredded turkey thigh for this, but it will work just as well with slices of breast meat.  Gently reheat in a pan with some melted butter and an extra sprinkle of Texas steak rub.
Assemble the burger with bubble & squeak hash brown, moist turkey thigh meat and top with the sausage stuffing patty! Add a pig in blanket to the top for the ultimate Festive burger treat.
40g/1½oz butter, plus extra for greasing
1 large onion, finely chopped
700g/1lb 9oz pork sausage meat
150g/5½oz fresh white breadcrumbs
1 large unwaxed lemon, juice and finely grated zest
3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 tbsp chopped fresh sage
100g dried cranberries
Angus & Oink Lemon Pepper Seasoning
1 tbsp vegetable oil
8 rashers Streaky bacon 
Melt the butter in a saucepan over a medium heat, add the onion and fry gently for 8-10 minutes, or until softened and remove from pan.
Fry bacon rashers until crispy and remove to cool.  Cut up into small pieces and combine all ingredients except vegetable oil until well mixed.
Using wet hands, weight out 120g balls of mixture and form into burger patties, place on a lightly greased baking tray covered with cling film and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
When ready to cook, add vegetable oil to a frying pan over a medium high heat.  Add patties to pan and fry for 1 minute each side before turning the heat down to medium low and fry for a further 3mins each side until cooked through.

    This burger was out of this world and tasted better than the actually Christmas dinner, which was really good to begin with. All the guests were having foodgasms!
