The Juicy, Healthy Cherry Burger served with Rooster Oven Chips

A juicier and fruitier take on a traditional burger.

Cooking PotMETHOD

  1. Follow the recipe for healthy Rooster oven chips.

  2. Place the lean minced beef or turkey (for a much lower saturated fat content) in a large bowl and gently mix in the dried cherries, breadcrumbs, garlic, vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and black pepper until combined. The cherries mean that each burger even counts as one of your 5-a-day!

  3. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and form your burgers. Use damp hands to form the burger shape as this will stop them sticking to your fingers.

  4. Now cook either on a fat-reducing grill, under the grill or by dry-frying (using a non-stick pan and not adding in any extra fat). Make sure that the heat is high and the burgers are cooked quickly so they are still moist in the middle but charred on the outside.

  5. Meanwhile, toast your muffins and slice up the beef tomatoes.

  6. Serve as an open burger with the meat on one side and the lettuce, tomatoes and onion on the other, alongside the oven chips.

Our Rooster potatoes are perfect for making firm-yet-fluffy delicious golden chips.
