Do something different with turkey this year – pair it with feta, leeks and a herb and mustard yoghurt dressing in these sliders

To make the dressing simply mix all the ingredients together. Season to taste. Chill until required. 

For the burgers, place the leeks in a food processor and process until finely chopped. All the remaining burger ingredients, and process briefly until well combined. Using damp hands, shape the mixture into four large burgers. Place on a greased baking tray and chill for 30 minutes. 

When you are ready to cook preheat the oven to 190C, gas mark 5. Place the burgers on a tray and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until golden and cooked through. 

To serve cut the burger buns in half, place some lettuce on the bun followed by the burger. then add some grated beetroot and tomato. Finally, drizzle over a little of the dressing and top with the burger bun. Accompany with salad and coleslaw.
