Baking Sheet with Baking Paper


Make the Wedges
  • Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Chop the potatoes into 2cm wide wedges (no need to peel).
  • Halve, peel and slice the onion as thinly as you can. 
  • Pop the wedges onto a lined baking tray. Toss with salt, pepper, thyme and a drizzle of oil. Spread out in a single layer.
  • When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-35 mins. Turn halfway through.

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

Get Prepped
  • Meanwhile, halve the tomatoes.
  • Trim the baby gem and separate the leaves. Reserve 1 leaf per person. Thinly slice the remaining lettuce widthways.
  • To make your dressing, combine ¼ tsp sugar and 2 tbsp oil (double both for 4p) in a medium bowl.
  • Add half the red wine vinegar and season with salt and pepper.
  • Just before serving, add the sliced baby gem and tomatoes to the dressing and toss to coat.
Form the Burgers
  • To a large bowl, add the beef, breadcrumbs, ½ tsp salt and 2 tbsp water (double both for 4p). Season with pepper and mix together by hand. 
  • Roll into balls then shape into 1cm thick burgers—1 per person. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw meat.
  • When the wedges are halfway cooked, place the burgers on a lined baking tray. Cook on the middle shelf until browned, 12-15 mins.

TIP: Burgers may shrink slightly during cooking.

Cook the Bacon
  • Meanwhile, place a pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, lay in the bacon and fry until crispy and brown, 3-4 mins on each side. Once cooked, transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper. IMPORTANT: Cook bacon thoroughly.
  • Return the pan to medium heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, add the onion and fry, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5-6 mins.
Caramelise the Onion
  • Once softened, add 1 tsp sugar (double for 4p) and the remaining red wine vinegar to the onion.
  • Reduce the heat and cook until soft and sticky, 2-3 mins. Remove from the heat.
  • Meanwhile, place the cheese on top of the cooked burgers and pop back into the oven until the cheese has melted, 2-3 mins. IMPORTANT: Burgers are cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Pop the brioche buns into the oven to warm through at the same time, 2-3 mins.
Assemble Your Burgers
  • When everything is ready, spread a layer of caramelised onion over each bun base. 
  • Top with the cheesy burgers, crispy bacon and reserved baby gem leaves.
  • Sandwich shut with the bun lids.
  • Toss the wedges in the truffle oil.
  • Serve your cheesy bacon burgers with wedges and salad alongside.
