- To make the Parsnip Chips: Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 7 / 220 C. Peel the parsnips and cut them into long chip shapes around 1cm wide. Give them a good toss in the olive oil and rosemary and spread them onto 1 or 2 baking sheets. Season with salt. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden giving them a good shake 2 or 3 times during the cooking.
- To make the Christmas Turkey Burgers: Place all the ingredients (preferably at room temperature) in a large bowl. Use your hands to mix everything together really well. Split the mince equally in 4 and shape into 4 large burger patties. Place them on a plate, cover with clingfilm and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes until you are ready to cook. Cook the burgers under a grill for 8-9 minutes per side until cooked through. Serve the burgers on warm buns with cranberry sauce and salad leaves.
