Ingredients
  

  • 600 grams coarse minced venison
  • 1 red onion finely chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme chopped
  • 1 parsnip
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 celeriac
  • 4 slices local blue cheese or Stilton
  • 4 buns
  • seasonal salad
  • mustard
  • black pepper

Instructions
 

  • To make the burgers, mix the mince, onion and thyme together, adding salt and pepper to season. If you wish, fry a small piece of the mix and taste it to make sure that the seasoning is just right for you.
  • Divide the burger mix into four patties and place in the fridge for a couple of hours to firm up.
  • Finely slice the root vegetables and fry in vegetable oil until crisp. Drain, season with salt and set aside so that they remain crispy.
  • Heat a frying pan with a little oil and fry the burgers for 4 to 5 minutes on each side – longer if you like them well done.
  • Place the burgers on a baking tray, add a thick slice of blue cheese and brown under the grill
  • Serve the cheeseburgers in a toasted bun with the root vegetable crisps, salad and mustard.
