Pan with Lid


Make the Scary Sweet Potatoes
  • Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Chop the sweet potato widthways into 1cm thick rounds.
  • Using a knife, carefully carve eyes and a mouth into each slice to make scary sweet potato faces.
  • On a lined baking tray, toss with salt, pepper and a drizzle of oil.
  • Cook on the top shelf of the oven until golden, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through.

TIP: If you aren't into scary stuff, cut the sweet potatoes into wedges and cook as above.

Get Prepped
  • Thinly slice the tomato.
Form the Burgers
  • Mix the pork mince, mustard, Mexican spice, breadcrumbs and 2 tbsp water (double for 4p) in a large bowl. 
  • Add a generous pinch of salt and pepper and mix everything together by hand until well combined.
  • Form the mixture into evenly-sized burgers—1 per person. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw meat.

TIP: The burgers will shrink a little as they cook.

Fry the Burgers
  • Place a pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once the pan is hot, fry the burgers until cooked through and nicely browned on each side, 12-15 mins total.
  • Turn every 2-3 mins. IMPORTANT: Burgers are cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Melt the Cheese
  • Once cooked, pop the cheese on top of the burgers, pressing it down gently so it stays in place.
  • Reduce the heat to low, add a splash of water to the pan and cover with a lid or some tin foil.
  • Allow the cheese melt, 2-3 mins, then remove the pan from the heat. 
  • Meanwhile, pop the burger buns into the oven to warm through, 2-3 mins.
Assemble Your Burgers
  • Spread aioli over the cut side of each bun.
  • Divide tomato slices between bun bases.
  • Place a cheesy burger on top.
  • Close with the bun lid.
  • Serve with the scary sweet potato faces alongside.
