Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Toss potato wedges in a large roasting tin with 1 tbsp oil and lemon juice. Spread out in a single layer. Bake for 35-45 mins, turning halfway, until golden brown and crisp.
  2. Meanwhile, place the breadcrumbs in a mixing bowl and moisten with 2 tbsp cold water. Add the mince, Parmesan, parsley, garlic and lemon zest. Season, mix well, then shape into 4 large, flat patties.
  3. Heat remaining oil in a pan and cook the patties for 7 mins on each side, or until they have a golden crust and are cooked through (alternatively, cook on the barbecue). Serve with the wedges and a tomato and rocket salad, if you like

Done following the meatballs recipe. Used 20g parmesan for 350g meat, didn't quite taste it. I am not sure it's useful. Very good, both children liked it too

Cheated with the potatoes by microvaving them whole to start wth and then cutting them into wedges before frying them in olive oil and lemon juice. V tasty result, The pork patties were also good although I had to leave out the parmesan so that they were dairy free.

Really was surprised at how good these were! The boyf loved too even tho he wasn't keen on the idea. Only change I made was oregano instead of parsley :)

These are great! They are easy and make a filling and satisfying supper at low cost. I'm surprised some people say they lacked flavour - I find them delicious with an interesting taste.

Made these delicious burgers with only a quarter of parmesan cheese and they were more than gorgeous. Really nice to find a tasty burger which I can use in place of the traditional beef ones as I don't eat cow!! Yum!!

We enjoyed these. After reading the comments we halfed the cheese and still felt we had too much so would prob use even less next time! They were easy to make - but cooking took a bit longer - i think because we made them too fat!
The lemon wedges were awesome! :)

This wasn't a success. Very dry and lacked taste. Even my hungry Horace teenager didn't eat all of it which is unheard of!

Didn't have parsley or lemon but was very tasty and will try again with all the ingredients next time

this was heavenly! however i added half of a finely diced onion and not sure about the salad, we had finely chopped cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, shredded lettuce with a splash of olive oil and lots of lemon juice and it was perfect!

Have made these as burgers and they really go down well but replace the parsley with oregano and serve made into meatballs in a garlicky mushroom and tomato sauce with pasta and they are really delicious!

These were a real success. I only put in about 20g of parmesan after previous comments and it seemed loads but it could have done with a bit more. I really liked the lemony taste as did my fussy 8 year old, my 11 year old thought it was too lemony and my husband couldn't taste it! I think I made the patties a bit thick and they took ages to cook, consequently they were quite burnt, err I mean crisp, on the outside. Put an egg in the mix and they stayed together fine.

This is a really useful recipe! The burgers are delicious, very quick and easy to make and you can prepare them ahead of time and keep them in the fridge until you want them. They didn't fall apart but I did only turn them once as instructed in the recipe. I think maybe if you turned them over and over they might not stand up to it!

These are gorgeous. Make a lovely change from beef burgers. I added an egg into the patty mixture and they didn't fall apart at all. Also, didn't have any parsley so used oregano. Fried mine on either side to colour & then finished in the oven, draining away any excess fat. Served in little ciabatta buns with the wedges & a big salad. Gorgeous!! Defo don't halve the parmesan in my opinion!

A lovely tasting recipe. Just the right balance of flavours for us. my onlt critisism is that they fall apart a bit when cooking, but they still taste yummy!

I just made these for our family evening meal, and we all absolutely loved the burgers (daughters aged 3 & 6 especially!). I only had new pots and no lemon, so I pan fried them in olive oil, butter and a smidgen of oregano, which I also used in place of the parsley in the burgers. Delish! (No falling apart, and the amount of parmesan was perfect for us) - will definitely be a regular for us.

These are really easy to make and very cheap! I have made them few times and when i had no parmesan i added some feta cheese instead, also very tasty alternative. Definitely a family favourite!
