- Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
- Chop the potatoes lengthways into 1cm slices, then into 1cm chips (peeling optional).
- Pop the chips onto a large (lined) baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season well with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer.
- When the oven is hot, bake on the top shelf until golden, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through.
- Once cooked, sprinkle with half the cheese and allow to melt, 2-3 mins.
- Meanwhile, roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all).
- Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
- To make your chimichurri dressing add the parsley, half the garlic, and half the red wine vinegar to a small bowl.
- Add 1 tbsp oil (double for 4p), season with salt and pepper, mix together, then set aside.
- Drain the sweetcorn in a sieve. Toss with the paprika, a pinch of salt and pepper and a drizzle of oil.
- In a large bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, remaining garlic, 2 tbsp water and ¼ tsp salt (double both for 4p).
- Add the mince, season with pepper and mix everything together with your hands.
- Roll into evenly-sized balls then shape into 2cm thick burgers—1 per person. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw mince.
- Place the beef burgers onto a lined baking tray.
- Spread the spiced corn out on the baking tray next to the burgers.
- Bake on the middle shelf until cooked through, 12-15 mins. IMPORTANT: Burgers are cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
- Once the burgers are cooked, sprinkle with remaining cheese, return to the oven and allow to melt.
TIP: The burgers will shrink a little during cooking.
- Place a large pan over medium-high heat (without oil).
- Once hot, fry the chorizo until starting to brown, 3-4 mins.
- Stir in the remaining vinegar and allow it to evaporate fully, then remove from the heat. Add the sweet chilli sauce and mix until combined.
- Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed. Cover to keep warm.
- Pop the brioche buns, cut-side up, into the oven to warm through, 2-3 mins.
- When everything is ready, divide the warmed buns between plates.
- Drizzle the bun lids with the chimichurri dressing.
- Spread the chorizo jam over the bun bases, then top with the burgers. Close with the bun lids.
- Serve the spiced sweetcorn and cheesy chips alongside.
