30 Day Snap | Day 23

                            

This was my success today. Aided by little hands; homemade burgers and chips. 

Ingredients for the burgers
Lamb mince
Red opinion, grated 
Black pepper 
All purpose seasoning 
All spice 
Nutmeg
Rosemary, chopped 
1 beaten egg

For the chips
Baking potatoes
Salt
Oil

Method.
Mix burger ingredients, bar the egg together.  Then add the egg and mould into patty shapes.  Place the patties on a plate and cover and leave to set in the fridge. 

Boil some water for your chips.  Wash your potatoes and cut them in half.  Slice the halves into chunky chip shapes.  Make sure they are all the same thickness.  Place the chips in the boiling water for 10 minutes.  Meanwhile add oil to a roasting tin and place in the oven until it sizzles.  Drain the chips once boiled and season with salt.  Add the chips to the pan and coat them in the oil.  Cook them for 30 minutes.  I set my oven to 160/170 degrees (fan oven).  

Fry the burgers in a small amount of oil on a medium heat.  You want them to cook slowly and evenly so the outside doesn't crisp and the inside is raw. 

I served the burgers in buttered cholla buns with tomatoes and pineapple.  And the chips on the side. Voila!

Burgers are so easy to make- you can flavour them with ANYTHING.  The egg binds the mixture together, although you can use chutney or breadcrumbs to do this.  

Let me know if you're going to have a go!
