Pan with Lid


Cook the Chips
  • Preheat your 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
  • Remove the root and the dark green leafy part from the leek. Cut in half widthways.
  • Take one half (double for 4p) and halve lengthways, then thinly slice. 
  • Place a medium pan over medium heat with a knob of butter.
  • Once hot, add the sliced leek and season with salt and pepper. Cook until softened, 6-8 mins, stirring occasionally.
  • Once softened, remove from the pan and set aside.
Make the Burgers
  • 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 with your hands. 
  • Roll into evenly-sized balls, then form into 1cm thick burgers, 1 per person. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince.

TIP: The burgers will shrink a little during cooking.

Fry the Burgers
  • Return the pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once oil is hot, fry the burgers until browned on the outside and cooked through, 10-12 mins. Turn them every 2-3 mins and lower heat if needed. IMPORTANT: The burgers are cooked when no longer pink in the middle. 
  • When burgers are done, remove pan from heat.
  • Place some cheese on top of each burger.
  • Cover pan and set aside (off the heat) until the cheese melts, 3-4 mins.
Warm the Buns
  • While the burgers cook, pop the buns onto a baking tray.
  • Warm in the oven, 1-2 mins.

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

Dish Up
  • To assemble the burgers, spread a spoonful of aioli over each base bun.
  • Top with the cheesy beef burger and buttered leeks then close with the top bun
  • Serve with chips alongside.
