Instructions

Cook the Chips
1
  • Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Chop the potatoes lengthways into 1cm slices, then into 1cm chips (peeling optional).
  • Pop onto a lined baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer.
  • When the oven is hot, cook on the top shelf until golden, 25-30 mins. Turn the tray halfway through.
  • Once cooked, toss together with the cheese.

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

Shape the Burgers
2
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, 2 tsp water and ¼ tsp salt (double both for 4p).
  • Add the beef mince, season with pepper and mix everything together by hand. 
  • Roll into evenly-sized balls, then form into 1cm thick burgers, one per person. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw mince.
Sear the Burgers
3
  • Place a pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, fry the burgers until browned on the outside and cooked through, 10-12 mins.
  • Turn every 2-3 mins, adjusting heat as needed. IMPORTANT: Beef is cooked when no longer pink in the middle. Once cooked, transfer from pan. Cover to keep warm.
  • Return the pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Fry bacon until crispy and brown, 3-4 mins each side. Remove from the pan once cooked.
Make the Sauce
4
  • Return the empty pan to high heat, adding the creme fraiche and stock powder
  • Cook until thickened, stirring occasionally, 2-3 mins. 
  • Remove from the heat and stir through the truffle oil.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Cover to keep warm.

TIP: Loosen with a splash of water if the sauce becomes too thick.

Warm the Buns
5
  • Chop the tomatoes into 2cm chunks.
  • Toss the chopped tomato together in a bowl with the salad leaves, a drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Pop the buns into the oven to warm through, 2-3 mins.

TIP: Keep an eye on them so they don't burn!

Finish and Serve
6
  • To assemble the burgers, top each base bun with the beef burger, some bacon strips and a spoonful of truffle sauce. 
  • Close with the top bun.
  • Serve the cheesy chips and salad alongside.
