for the burgers
for the cranberry and pecan sauce
1Place all the ingredients for the burgers into a large bowl, mix together and press into either four large patties or 10 small ones.
2Place on a tray and refrigerate for at least half an hour.
3Place the cranberries, maple syrup and orange juice and zest into a saucepan, bring to a simmer and cook until softened and syrupy, then add the pecans.
4Cook the burgers either in a griddle or frying pan in a little oil, over a medium heat for approximately 10-12 minutes on each side for the large ones and 5-7 minutes for the small ones.
5Make sure to check they are cooked through and piping hot.
6Serve in warm baps or mini rolls spread with mayonnaise, topped with a little lettuce and a good spoonful of the cranberry and pecan sauce.
