Homemade Burger and Chips




1 hr




  • 1.25 kg potatoes
  • 1.5 tbsp olive oil
  • onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
  • tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 500 g pack beef mince
  • giant white baps, toasted
  • tomatoes, sliced
  • 75 g pack young leaf salad


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Wash the potatoes and cut into finger-width chips. Spread in a single layer on a large non-stick baking tray and drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Bake for 45 minutes, turning every 15 minutes.

Step 2

While the chips cook, heat the remaining olive oil in a large frying pan and add the onion, garlic and dried mixed herbs. Cook for 5 minutes until soft, then tip into a large bowl and add the beef mince. Season and bring the mixture together with your hands. Divide into 4 and shape into burgers.

Step 3

Using the same pan you used to cook the onion mixture, fry the burgers for about 3 minutes on each side. Transfer to a baking sheet and cook in the oven for a further 10 minutes, until cooked through, piping hot and no pink colour remains.

Step 4

Serve each burger in a white or brioche bap with any sauce of salad you like.
