Thanksgiving Turkey Brioche Burgers

Celebrate this Thanksgiving Day with Turkey Brioche Burgers and a light red wine variety or a perfumed rose with candied red fruit. Here is the recipe.

My first Thanksgiving and first time estimating an appropriate size turkey to feed my friends. Suffice to say, our eighteen-pound turkey for sixteen people left about 3 weeks of leftovers. I was rushing to work on a hazy morning after. My American sweetheart, Taylor spiced things up for my breakfast-on-the-go with a shredded turkey, cranberry sauce and mash potato brioche burger. At least that’s what she thought it was… Bearing very similar appearance to the potato mash, she unknowingly dolloped a very generous spoonful of sweet, French Chantilly cream which we had served with our pumpkin pie. No joke, a match made in flavour heaven. Thinking of other Southern favourites like fried chicken, ice cream and waffles, our tragic combo suddenly doesn’t seem so absurd. This year we’ll be recreating it with intent for a playful, delicious morning-after bite.  Pair playfully with a light red wine variety or a perfumed rosé with candied red fruit.
