  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.

I thought these burgers were good but not great I would say they deserve 3.5/5. Stupidly I looked at the comments after making them. I agree that they need a bit more of a kick. I followed the recipe exactly but did not add egg. Also did not make the chips either but will give it a go next time as the reviews are so good and maybe my rating for them will improve.

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????
