Baking Tray
Garlic Press


Roast the Wedges

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.

Chop the potatoes into 2cm wide wedges (no need to peel).

Pop them onto a large baking tray. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.

When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-35 mins. Turn halfway through.

Make the Meatballs

Meanwhile, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

In a large bowl, combine the garlic, breadcrumbs, salt and water for the breadcrumbs (see pantry for both amounts), then add the beef mince.

Season with pepper and mix together with your hands. Roll into evenly-sized balls, 5 per person. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince.

Finish the Prep

Grate the Cheddar cheese. Slice the buns down through the middle (but not all the way through). 

Halve, peel and thinly slice the onion.

Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium heat.

Once hot, add the onion, season with salt and pepper and fry, stirring occasionally, until golden, 8-10 mins.

Bake your Meatballs

Once the onion is golden, add the sugar (see pantry for amount) and cook until caramelised, 1-2 mins more.

Meanwhile, pop the meatballs onto a large baking tray and bake on the middle shelf until browned on the outside and cooked through, 12-15 mins. IMPORTANT: The meatballs are cooked when no longer pink in the middle. 

Assembly Time

When the meatballs have 2-3 mins left, pop the buns into the oven to warm through, 2-3 mins.

Move the wedges to the bottom shelf of your oven.

Once cooked, remove the meatballs from the baking tray and wipe the tray clean. Add the warmed buns to the tray and spread with the burger sauce. Share the meatballs between the buns and top with the cheese.

Bake on the top shelf until the cheese is melted and bubbly, 2-3 mins.

Finish and Serve

When everything's ready, transfer the meatball subs to your plates and serve the wedges alongside.

Spoon the caramelised onions on top of the meatball subs to finish.
