Turkey Burgers with Cranberry and Pecan Sauce

This festive recipe for turkey burgers with cranberry and pecan sauce puts a casual spin on the classic Turkey roast just in time for Christmas.

It’s perfect for parties and works well when served as a smaller canapé, too.

  • 100ml maple syrup

  • 4 large baps or 10 mini rolls
  • Mayonnaise
  • Lettuce 

Method
