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 wide chips (no need to peel).
  • Pop the chips onto a large (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, bake on the top shelf until golden, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through.

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

Soften the Leeks
2
  • Trim the leek. Halve lengthways. Thinly slice one-half widthways (double for 4p).
  • Place a pan over medium heat with a knob of butter and a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, add the sliced leek and season with salt and pepper.
  • Cook until softened, stirring occasionally, 6-8 mins.
  • Once softened, remove from the pan and set aside.
Form the Burgers
3
  • In a large bowl, combine the Worcester sauce, mustard and breadcrumbs.
  • Add 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 shape into 1cm thick burgers—one per person. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw mince.

TIP: The burgers will shrink a little during cooking.

Fry the Burgers
4
  • Return the pan to 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 the heat if necessary.
  • Once cooked, remove the pan from the heat. IMPORTANT: Burgers are cooked when no longer pink in the middle. 
  • Place some cheese on top of each burger.
  • Cover the pan and set aside (off the heat) until the cheese melts, 3-4 mins.
Warm the Buns
5
  • While the burgers cook, separate the buns.
  • Pop into the oven to warm through, 2-3 mins.

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

Assemble and Serve
6
  • To assemble the burgers, spread some aioli and ketchup over each base bun.
  • Top with the cheesy beef burger and buttered leeks.
  • Sandwich closed with the top bun
  • Serve with chips alongside.
