  • 480 grams beef mince the best quality you can
  • 900 grams potatoes
  • 20 grams hard cheese such as parmesan
  • 50 grams panko breadcrumbs
  • 80 grams ketchup
  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 60 grams cheddar
  • ½ medium cucumber
  • 2 medium carrots
  • 2 medium baby gem lettuces
  • 2 tbsp clear runny honey
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 4 large burger buns
  • 5 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper for seasoning


  1. Preheat the oven to 220 °C/425°F/Gas Mark 7

    Slice the potatoes into wedges and coat in a little olive oil (2 tbsp) and sea salt. There is no need to peel the potatoes.

  2. Meanwhile, pop the beef mince into a mixing bowl with the ketchup, panko breadcrumbs, hard Italian cheese and a generous pinch of salt and pepper.

  3. Mix together with your hands until completely combined, then shape into burger patties, one per person, about 2cm thick. 

  4. Heat a tbsp of oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat. Once hot, add the burgers and lower the heat to medium. Cook until browned on the outside and cooked through, turn carefully once or twice. This should take 12-14 mins in total. Make sure the burgers are cooked completely through.

  5. Top the burgers with a ¼ of the grated cheddar cheese and cover the frying pan (large plate or lid). Leave to the side, while the cheese melts, 5 mins. Halve the buns and put them on the middle shelf of your oven to warm for 3-4 mins.

  6. Prepare and chop the salad and mix 2 tbsp of olive oil with 2 tbsp of honey and 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar, the dressing ingredients, season and together. Pour over the dressing and mix to coat.

  7. Spread a little mayo on the bottom of each bun and make up the burgers. Serve with the wedges and salad.

  8. Apply To Unstressed Face.
