  • burger buns, lettuce, sliced red onion, tomatoes, gherkins, and sauces or relishes, to serve


  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.

amazing burgers! 1st time I made them I used all the ingredients and they were good but 2nd time omitted the chiili and they are probably the nicest homemade burgers Ive ever had. For the bread crumbs I used fresh white bread which made the burgers really moist. Added a slice of cheese and melted under the grill - amazing!

Lovely burgers, really enjoyed them, could replace the onion with 2 tablespoons of Carmalised Onion to make them even easier.

These are juicy and meaty, perfect for BBQ and for the whole family - I love them! Forgot to add my rating too ... 8 stars :) As to them falling apart, try adding a bigger egg and patting them into shape with some plain four ...

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?
