Get Gobbled Or Get Roasted by Jay Krome

Get Gobbled Or Get Roasted by Jay Krome

So as Down n Out do off the chain fried chicken, I though it fitting to do this Xmas themed burg with something fried. So the obvious was turkey.

  • Eggnog and buttermilk brined, crispy fried turkey breast
  • Pork sausage stuffing
  • Double Brie cheese
  • Fennel and dill slaw
  • Cranberry sauce

Soaked the turkey breasts overnight in eggnog and buttermilk, along with some Xmas spices; mace, all spice, cinnamon etc. Dredged in egg white and eggnog, flour then deep fried to crispy goodness!

The sausage stuffing contained pork mince, orange zest, brandy, dried cranberries, pistachios, walnuts, sourdough, sage, thyme, Xmas spices and roasted crunchy on the outside.

This was like Xmas with every bite! IMO this needed one more thing, GRAVY!! Can’t believe I didn’t think of that when dreaming this one up!

Deck The Halls with Pork and Gravy by Katrina Williams

Whether the judges/people find this burger appealing or not, I feel I should preface this post by saying, this is the most fulfilling task I’ve maybe ever carried out.

So this was a labour of love that took approx 6hrs to make (over two days cos I had places to be).

The inspiration was a classic roast dinner - roast meat & veggies, gravy & warm sweet spices etc.!

I call it, Deck The Halls with Pork and Gravy

What’s involved:

  • Home-made/slow roasted pulled pork (with a paprika, cumin and garlic dry rub)
  • Home-made, rich herbed gravy
  • Provolene cheese melted over the pulled pork
  • x2 Sweet potato, carrot & nutmeg spiced rosti (spring onions/garlic and a little grated cheddar in there too)
  • Served with sweet spiced pickles
  • All sandwiched together on a soft, buttery brioche bun lightly toasted & with some herbed gravy each side
