Prep: 25min Cook: 40min
Serves 3-4
  • 300g leftover christmas turkey (cooked)
  • 350g cooked leftover vegetables, e.g. Brussel sprouts, cabbage, carrots
  • 350g cooked potatoes, mashed
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • salt and ground black pepper
  • 25g plain flour
  • 85g pack sage and onion stuffing mix
  • 4 tbsp oil

For the red onion marmalade

(can use a store bought as an alternative)
  • 25g butter
  • 2 large red onions, finely sliced
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 150ml red wine
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  1. Roughly chop the leftover vegetables and place in a large mixing bowl with the mashed potato and chopped turkey. Add 1 beaten egg and season with salt and pepper and mix well.
  2. Divide and shape into 8 patties and chill for an hour to firm up.
  3. To make the marmalade, heat the butter in a large saucepan. Add the onions and sugar and cook over a medium heat for 15 -20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onions start to caramelise and turn golden. Increase the heat and add the red wine and vinegar. Bring to the boil then reduce the heat, cook the onions for a further 15 minutes until most of the liquid has evaporated. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat.
  4. Coat the patties in the flour followed by the remaining beaten egg.
  5. Lightly coat each in the dry stuffing mix. Heat the oil in a large non- stick frying pan. Cook the patties for 3 minutes each side until golden and crisp.
  6. Drain on kitchen paper and serve with the warm marmalade, roasted vine tomatoes and salad leaves.
