Recipe: 2012 oven-roasted garlic chips with gourmet burger

Chip Week is here, so get peeling those potatoes and try some of these fabulous retro recipes to celebrate a British favourite

This succulent beefburger is bursting full of flavour and served with thick-cut chips. You will have a restaurant classic served in no time — and if the sun is shining, why not pop your burgers on the barbecue?

What you'll need

For the garlic chips

3-4 Desirée potatoes (about 1kg)

3 tbsp olive oil

Sea salt and black pepper

4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

For the burger

Drizzle of sunflower oil

1 small onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

500g minced beef

Large bunch flat leaf parsley, chopped

1 large lemon, grated zest only

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

4 bread rolls, to serve

Heat the sunflower oil in a frying pan and gently cook the onion and garlic until soft, but not coloured.

Combine the onion and garlic with the other burger ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.

Shape the mixture into four burgers. Make sure all the burgers are the same thickness so that they cook evenly. Cover with cling film and chill for at least 30 minutes or until ready to cook.

Heat the oven to 220°C/gas 7/425°F. Cut the unpeeled potatoes into thick chips of similar thickness so they cook evenly.

Toss with the olive oil and tip onto a baking tray.

Add the garlic and toss the chips. Roast for 20-30 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked and deliciously golden brown.

Lightly oil both sides of the burger and grill for approximately five minutes, on each side.
