- STEP 1
Heat oven to 230C/210C fan/gas 8. Toss the potatoes and pepper with 1 tbsp oil and 1 tsp herbs on a large baking tray. Roast for 25 mins, turning once, until the chips are golden and the pepper soft.
- STEP 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.
- STEP 3
Season the chips. Serve the burgers in buns with lettuce, onion, red pepper and garlic mayo with the chips alongside.
Look for tins of smoked paprika – we used La Chinata, from Sainsbury’s or delicatessens. It has a deep, smoky, warm flavour and comes in sweet (dulce) or hot (picante) varieties, so pick whichever you prefer.
