Ingredients

  • 500g pork mince
  • 1 tsp fennel seed
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • 2 large tomatoes , chopped
  • 6 black olives , chopped
  • drizzle of balsamic vinegar
  • 4 ciabatta bread rolls, split and toasted
  • 4 tbsp mascarpone
  • handful baby spinach

Method

  • STEP 1

    Mix the pork mince with the fennel seeds, chilli flakes, oregano and some seasoning. Mix well with your hands until well combined, then shape into 4 burgers. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan – or fire up the BBQ and brush the burgers with a little oil – and cook the burgers for 5-7 mins on each side until cooked through.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, mix the tomatoes, olives, balsamic vinegar and a drizzle more oil with some seasoning to make a salsa. Top the base of each roll with 1 tbsp mascarpone, a few spinach leaves, a burger and a spoonful of the salsa, then sandwich everything with the lid.
