Baking Tray
Garlic Press
Large Bowl


Cook 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.

Prep Time

Meanwhile, cut the cheese into even chunks. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Shape your Burgers

In a large bowl, combine the sun-dried tomato paste, garlic and breadcrumbs, then add the beef mince. Season with salt and pepper, then mix together with your hands. 

Roll the mince into even-sized balls. Shape into 2cm thick burgers around a chunk of cheese, ensuring they’re well sealed, 1 per person. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince.

Ready, Steady, Bake

Pop the burgers onto a baking tray and bake on the middle shelf of your oven until cooked through, 12-15 mins. IMPORTANT: The mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Warm the Buns

When the wedges and burgers are almost cooked, halve the burger buns.

Pop onto a baking tray and into the oven to warm through, 2-3 mins.

Assemble and Serve

When everything's ready, spread some mayo (see pantry for amount) over the bun bases. Top with the burgers and a handful of pea shoots. TIP: Scoop up any escaped cheese from the baking tray and pile on top.

Add the remaining pea shoots to your plates and drizzle over the balsamic glaze.

Serve your melt in the middle burgers with the wedges and salad alongside.
