Baking Sheet with Baking Paper


Cook the Fries
  • Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Chop the sweet potatoes lengthways into 1cm slices, then into 1cm fries (peeling optional).
  • Pop onto a large (lined) baking tray. Toss with salt, pepper and a drizzle of oil. Spread out in a single layer. You want them well spaced out to achieve a crispy finish!
  • Roast on the top shelf until golden, 20-25 mins. Turn the tray halfway through.

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

Form the Burgers
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the mince, breadcrumbs, 2 tbsp water and ¼ tsp salt (double both for 4p). IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw meat.
  • Season with pepper and mix together by hand.
  • Roll into evenly-sized balls, then shape into 2cm thick burgers, one per person. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw meat.

TIP: Burgers will shrink a little during cooking.

Fry the Burgers
  • Place a large pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, fry the burgers until browned on the outside and cooked through, 12-14 mins.
  • Carefully turn every 3-4 mins, adjusting the heat if needed. IMPORTANT: Burgers are cooked when no longer pink in the middle. 
  • While the burgers cook, halve, peel and thinly slice the shallot.
Make the Sweet Chilli Bacon
  • Place a pot over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Fry the lardons and shallot until golden, stirring often, 5-7 mins. IMPORTANT: Cook lardons well.
  • Add a splash of water and the sweet chilli sauce. Cook for 2-3 mins. Once cooked, remove from the pot and cover to keep warm. Give the pot a quick wipe.
  • Trim the salad leaves, reserving one leaf per burger. Halve the rest lengthways and thinly slice widthways.
  • Chop the tomatoes into 2cm pieces.
Simmer the Cheese Sauce
  • Return the pot to medium-high heat with 2 tbsp butter (double for 4p).
  • Once melted, add 1 tbsp flour (double for 4p).
  • Stir in 100ml water (double for 4p) a little at a time. Bring to the boil, stirring, then simmer until thickened, 1-2 mins. 
  • Mix in the creme fraiche, cheese and ½ tsp pepper (double for 4p). Stir until all the cheese has melted. Season to taste with salt.
  • Pop the buns into the oven to warm through, 2-3 mins.
Finish and Serve
  • In a large bowl, toss the tomatoes and chopped salad with a drizzle of oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper
  • Spread a spoonful of sweet chilli bacon over each base bun.
  • Top with reserved salad leaves, burgers and cheese sauce. Sandwich closed with the top bun.
  • Serve with sweet potato fries, tossed salad and any remaining cheese sauce alongside.
  • Drizzle the balsamic glaze over the salad.
