(A note on my measuring units)

Serves 4

For The Patties:
1lb/500g turkey meat ground or finely chopped. (How to grind your own Meat)
1 hand finely chopped spring onion
1 clove garlic crushed or finely chopped
4 pinches paprika powder
1 pinch barbecue spice
a little pepper, fresh ground is better
a little salt
1 hand fresh bread crumbs
1 egg lightly whisked
1 quarter chicken bouillon/stock cube dissolved in 2 to 3 tablespoons water

For the Cranberry Sauce:
Half a cup of cranberry sauce 1 tablespoon honey
1 small dash of cider vinegar
quarter onion finely chopped
1 pinch grated ginger
1 pinch mixed spice
a little butter

For the Rolls:
4 rolls
4 thin slices light cheese
thinly sliced onion
a little mayonnaise

Sauce: Cook onion over low heat in butter untill soft, add the other ingredients and simmer for about 5 minutes. Patty: Mix all the patty ingredients thoroughly, leaving the salt for after the patties are cooked if you prefer. (How to season meat)
Make sure the mixture is cool. Divide mixture into 4 equal balls and mold into patties. (How to mold patties)

Cook on low heat under the grill, on the barbecue or in a pan (how to regulate cooking temperature) until cooked through or the internal temp reaches 175F/80C (when is my patty cooked?).

Split the rolls and toast the cut surfaces lightly (under grill, on barbecue or in pan) just before the patties are done. Spread a little mayonnaise on the bottom half of the roll, add a thin slice of onion, some lettuce, the patty, the slice of cheese, some cranberry sauce and the other half of the roll.

Bon Appetit!
