Method

  1. Heat oven to 230C/210C fan/gas 8. Toss the potatoes and pepper with 1 tbsp oil and 1 tsp herbs on a large baking tray. Roast for 25 mins, turning once, until the chips are golden and the pepper soft.
  2. Meanwhile, mix the mince, two-thirds of the garlic, the paprika, egg, remaining herbs and seasoning in a bowl. Shape into 4 burgers. Can now be frozen. Heat a frying pan, add 1 tsp oil, then cook for 15 mins, turning halfway. Mix the mayonnaise with the remaining garlic.
  3. Season the chips. Serve the burgers in buns with lettuce, onion, red pepper and garlic mayo with the chips alongside.

The potatoes were superb. However, I found the burgers rather blunt. So, I agree with previous comments: be generous with all spices.

Good meal though.

Absolutely delicious! Lovely flavour to the burgers and the wedges were cooked perfectly. Will be making again!

The burgers look delicious, but you said to use burger buns, are they gluten free

These were de-lish! I added a bit of extra paprika and some chilli flakes to them so they were nice and spicy, and they tasted great, I'm making them for tea again tonight

really tasty and juicy...but I would suggest being very liberal with the paprika as my burgers were lacking that extra kick!!

Hi Jooles

I agree these look lovely. With regard to Red Peppers, it says at point 1 roast peppers with potatoes...... ;-)

This looks lovely, and i will be making them, my only querie is the Red Peppers in the picture look as though they have been cooked over the gas ring, or roasted to give them that charred effect but there is no mention of this in the recipe, does anyone else agree with this????
