  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

i wouldn't make this again, but would use it for a sausage pie. as patties they completely fell apart. the mince had a nice flavour to it though and i used the stated amoiut of parmesan and lemon & liked them both

Loved this recipe, but 15 mins prep time is over-optimistic unless you have help in the kitchen. Very tasty and worth the effort if you have the time. Didn't do the salad but served with French beans from the garden.

The first time I made this recipe, I found the lemon zest was over powering as well as the parmesan and it struggled to stay together when fried. I had put in the juice of 1 lemon and the zest of 1 lemon as per the recipe and I believe this is to much, unless the lemon described in the recipe is very small it is too much. I will reattempt this recipe but adjust the ingredients till I get the balance right and will post the outcome.

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! :)
