You will need

(Serves 4)

500g beef mince

4 burger buns

1 tomato

1 cucumber

1 bunch lettuce

4 cheese slices

1 eggs

1/4 cup breadcrumbs

4 large potatoes


Tomato sauce


1. Heat an oven to 200C. Cut the potatoes lengthways and then again to make the shape of a chip. Place them on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for around 30 minutes, or until crispy and golden. 

2. Add the beef mince to a large bowl. Add in the breadcrumbs, egg and salt and pepper. Mix together until it is well combined. Roll into balls and then flatten the patties to make them a similar size to your burger bun. Cook in a frypan or on the barbecue on a high heat for 6-8 minutes on each side. When the patties are nearly cooked, place a slice of cheese on top of them and cook, until melted. 

3. In a small bowl mix together 1/4 cup of mayonnaise with 1 tbls of tomato sauce. Mix well and set aside. Slice the tomato and set aside. Slice the cucumber and set aside. 

4. Turn your oven onto a grill setting. Cut the burger bun in half and place under the grill until golden. Make sure you keep an eye on these, as they will burn quickly! To assemble your burger, place the lettuce on the bottom of the bun followed by the beef patty, tomato, cucumber and a generous amount of the sauce.
