Skinny burger and chips
To make my burger and chips healthier I dropped the bread, made my own chips with little oil and grilled my burgers, oh, and stacked up the salad! Still to be enjoyed, but not full of terrible unhealthy ingredients you get from fast food take aways. Bread is fine to have with these burgers though, I just decided to go without. I also made these with half a 400g pack of mince beef that I got on offer in a supermarket. The other half was for my chilli con carne.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees, and grill to a medium heat,
Put the oil in an oven tray with short sides or a roasting tray, and pop in the oven for about 10 minutes to get hot.
Chop the potato into chip shapes (halve it, then slice down each half again, then halve each piece you have cut)
Put the potato in the hot oven tray (this will spit a bit so be very careful) and season, tossing the potato in the oil to coat all over.
Put in the oven for 25 minutes or until brown, turning half way.
Whilst they are cooking, add the onion and garlic to the mince. If you have an egg (beaten and 1 tbsp worth) and some bread crumbs some recipes suggest adding this to help bind the mixture toegther, however I personally don’t bother.
Squidge the mixture together and roll and pat into burger shapes.
When it is 10 minutes before you need to get the chips out of the oven, cook the burgers until brown on each side.
serve with salad, or put the burgers in a bun.
