Venison burger with chipotle mayo

  • Preparation time: 5 minutes
  • Cooking time: 10 minutes
  • Total time: 15 minutes 15 minutes

Serves: 2


½ tbsp vegetable oil
2 Waitrose Lightly Seasoned Venison Burgers
2 Heston from Waitrose Brioche Burger Buns
4 tbsp mayonnaise
1½ tbsp Cooks’ Ingredients Chipotle Paste
Juice of 1 lime
1 freshly cooked beetroot, thinly sliced
2 handfuls of rocket  


1. Heat a griddle pan over a high heat, lightly oil the burgers with some of the vegetable oil, and when the griddle is hot gently lay the burgers on to cook. Griddle for 2 minutes on each side, then flip again and cook for a further 2 minutes on each side, or until cooked through and no pink meat remains. Remove to a plate to rest.

2. Slice the brioche buns in half and toast cut-side down on the griddle for about 20 seconds.

3. Mix together the mayonnaise, chipotle paste and lime juice to make a smooth sauce.

4. Generously spread the spiced mayo on the toasted brioche buns. Top with a burger and then pile on slices of beetroot and the rocket. Squeeze on the lid and serve with the remaining mayonnaise on the side.
