Instructions

Make the Fries
1
  • Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Cut the sweet potatoes lengthways into 1cm slices, then into 1cm fries (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 the tray halfway through.

TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary. You want them well spaced out to achieve a crispy finish.

Form the Burgers
2
  • Chop the diced chorizo as finely as you're able.
  • In a large bowl, combine the breadcrumbs with 2 tbsp water and ¼ tsp salt (double both for 4p).
  • Add the beef mince and half the chorizo.
  • 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.

TIP: The burgers will shrink a little during cooking.

Fry 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, 12-15 mins.
  • Turn every 2-3 mins, adjusting the heat if necessary. IMPORTANT: Burgers are cooked when no longer pink in the middle. 
  • Once cooked, remove the pan from the heat and 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.
Caramelise the Onion
4
  • 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 stirring occasionally, 4-5 mins. 
  • Add the remaining chorizo to the pot and cook for another 4-5 mins, stirring until the onions are caramelised.
  • Add half the balsamic glaze and a pinch of sugar. Cook until the balsamic has evaporated, 1-2 mins.
Finishing Touches
5
  • 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 and two tomato slices (double for 4p) for the burgers.
  • Toss the remaining salad leaves with remaining tomato, remaining balsamic glaze, a drizzle of oil, salt and pepper.
Assemble and Serve
6
  • 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 and chorizo.
  • Sandwich closed with the top bun
  • Serve with sweet potato fries, salad and remaining aioli alongside.
