Servings 4 People



  • 1 1/2 cup dry or semidry red wine
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup dried sultanas
  • 1 TBSP honey
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 9 cloves
  • 1/2 medium-hot chilli deseeded
  • orange zest of one orange


  • 500 g minced beef
  • 4 pretzel or burger buns
  • 1 big orange sliced to 5mm slices peel removed
  • 120 g matured cheddar thinly sliced
  • big bunch of arugula
  • salt
  • pepper


Mulled Wine Sauce

  • Put all ingredients for mulled wine sauce in a small saucepan. Bring it to a boil, then reduce heat and let it simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Use an immerse blender or a regular blender to thicken the sauce. You don't need to make it completely smooth.

Christmas Cheeseburger

  • Divide minced beef into 4 and make patties that are slightly larger than the bun.
  • Heat a pan and add a tablespoon of oil. Fry the patties for about 4 minutes on one side. Turn around, season with salt and pepper and cover with slices of cheddar. Cook for another 4 minutes for a medium burger or for 5-6 minutes for a well done. Cover with lid if the cheese needs some help with melting.


  • Cut the buns in half, spread the mulled wine sauce on the bottom part, add the burger patty, top with arugula and slices of oranges. Cover the burgers and enjoy!
