  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 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!

not sure why my last comment has 3 *'s should have been 4. Good Food why are there 6 stars in the rating but you can only rate out of 5 - very confusing

OK - personally I would give this recipe a 5* but my husband was not at all keen as he said there was too much parmesan. I love parmesan - he rated it a 3* so we compromised on a 4*. If you love cheese stick to the recipe if not halve the parmesan :-)

Dubious about making this because I am not so keen on burgers but wanted something my niece could make and they were absolutely delicious!

Super fantastic, very quick to make and tasty - I too had made them ahead of time and chilled them in the fridge, they will become a regular.

These are absolutely delicious and have become a regular family favourite, we've never had a problem with them falling apart however we ususally make them ahead of time and put in the fridge to chill.

Absolutely delicious! The patties were fantastic, will definately be made again and again. The whole meal cost me less than £5, which just makes me love it even more (and that was lean mince too). I cooked the patties in a George Foreman grill so didn't have any problems with them falling apart, and thought the cheese really made them (cheese addicts r us)
