Method

  1. Tip the mince into a large bowl with the onion, breadcrumbs, cheese, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, egg, chilli powder, ½ tsp salt and some pepper. Mix together well with your hands, then divide the mixture into 10 and shape into burgers.
  2. Bring 2 large saucepans of water to the boil (or prepare the chips in batches if you don’t have enough big pans). Add the chips, bring the water back to the boil and set your timer for 3 mins. After 3 mins, drain the potatoes well and tip onto one or two large kitchen-papercovered trays. Scatter with the flour and some seasoning and gently toss to coat.
  3. Freeze the burgers and chips (see freezing tips, below) or, to cook straight away, heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. In a baking tray, toss the chips in a little oil, then roast for 35-40 mins until crisp and golden. Meanwhile, heat a griddle pan, grill or barbecue until hot, then cook the burgers for about 5-8 mins on each side, or until cooked to your liking. Sandwich the burgers in toasted buns with salad and sauces, then serve with the chips.

Left out the cheese, no breadcrumbs, substitued dried chilli for a couple of fresh ones, pre-fried red onion, added three cloves of chopped garlic and tossed the shaped burgers in flour.
Absolutely fab-u-lous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great taste but they seem to crumble and fall apart when on the grill. Any idea why this could be?

Amazing, just making it for a second time!

Was on the look-out for a good simple burger recipe so will be trying this one out tonight. However, almost more importantly...I wholeheartedly agree with Missy and am terribly excited at the thought of making batches of my own homemade frozen oven chips. What a great way to save those old potatoes that are starting to go a bit past their best in the veggie basket! Fab idea!

This is the best beef burger recipe I have done. I changed it slightly, putting in less cheese and adding garlic and grated apple. These changes made it less fatty and more juicy. Completely delicious, and very easy.

Left out the cheese and added a clove of garlic and cooked on a 'cobb' cooker (as per Hairy bikers !) beautiful !!!!
