- Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
- Cut the sweet potatoes lengthways into 1cm slices, then into 1cm wide chips (no need to peel).
- Pop onto a lined baking tray.
- Toss with oil, salt, pepper and half the paprika. Spread out in a single layer.
- When the oven is hot, bake on the top shelf until golden, 20-25 mins. Turn halfway through.
TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary. You want them well spaced out to achieve a crispy finish.
- In a large bowl, combine the breadcrumbs with 2 tsp water and ¼ tsp salt (double both for 4p).
- Add the beef mince and chorizo. Season with pepper and mix everything together by hand.
- Roll into evenly-sized balls, then form into 1cm thick burgers, 1 per person. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw mince.
TIP: The burgers will shrink a little during cooking.
- Place a pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
- Once hot, fry the chorizo and beef burgers until browned on the outside and cooked through, 10-15 mins. Turn every 2-3 mins and lower heat if needed. IMPORTANT: Burgers are cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
- Once cooked, remove the pan from the heat.
- Place some cheese on top of each burger.
- Cover the pan and set aside (off the heat) until the cheese has melted, 3-4 mins.
- Meanwhile, halve, peel and thinly slice the onion.
- Place a pot over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
- Once hot, add the onion, season with salt and pepper and fry until soft and sweet, stirring occasionally, 8-10 mins.
- Add half the balsamic glaze and a pinch of sugar.
- Cook until the balsamic has evaporated, 1-2 mins.
- Pop the buns into the oven to warm, 2-3 mins.
- Meanwhile, mix the remaining paprika with the aioli.
- Thinly slice the tomato.
- Reserve a few salad leaves for the burgers and toss the remaining salad leaves with the tomatoes, remaining balsamic glaze, drizzle of oil, salt and pepper.
- To assemble the burgers, spread a spoonful of paprika aioli over each base bun.
- Top with the reserved leaves, tomato slices, cheesy chorizo and beef burger and caramelised onion.
- Close with the top bun.
- Serve with sweet potato fries, salad and remaining aioli alongside.
