• 8 burgers (I used mix of chilli/cheese burgers and steak burgers)
  • 1/2 cup of water approx
  • Thickening powder (I like McDougals thickening granules)
  • 4/5 medium potatoes
  • Large knob of butter
  • Grated cheddar cheese


  • STEP 1
    Defrost the burgers if frozen and break up over a medium heat in a pan until mixture resembles minced meat.
  • STEP 2
    Loosen up the meat mixtures with the water (don't make it too runny).
  • STEP 3
    Whilst burgers are cooking peel cut the potatoes in chunks and boil for 15-20 minutes until tender.
  • STEP 4
    Sprinkle the burger mixture with the thickening granules until mixture thickens slightly and put into an ovenproof dish.
  • STEP 5
    Mash the potatoes and season with salt and pepper to taste then add the knob of butter and 1-2 tablespoons of grated cheese.
  • STEP 6
    Put the mashed potatoes on top of the burger mixture and sprinkle with a little more grated cheese.
  • STEP 7
    Bake in the oven at 180 degs (fan oven) for about 20 mins or until golden. Nice served with a green vegetable and carrots.
