What’s better than a beef burger? A beef and caramelised bacon burger! That’s right, it’s got bacon to really turn the flavour factor up. Plus a dash of soy sauce in the patty is the secret ingredient to keep everyone guessing. Once you dig into this winning combo, you’ll never go back to your standard beef burger recipe again.

Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Cut the potato (unpeeled) into 1cm fries. Place on an oven tray lined with baking paper, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, then bake until tender, 25-30 minutes.
TIP: Cut the potato to the correct size so it cooks in the allocated time.
While the fries are baking, combine the beef mince, egg, fine breadcrumbs and soy sauce in a medium bowl. Using damp hands, form into 2cm thick patties slightly larger than your burger buns. You should get one patty per person.
TIP: Make a shallow indentation in the centre of each patty to help prevent it puffing up as it cooks.
Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat with a small drizzle of olive oil. Add the bacon and cook until golden and crisp, 3-4 minutes each side. Add the brown sugar and water and cook, tossing the bacon until caramelised, 30 seconds. Transfer to a plate.
When the fries have 10 minutes cook time remaining, wash the pan out then return to a medium-high heat with a drizzle more olive oil. Cook the patties until cooked through, 4-5 minutes each side.
While the patties are cooking, place the bake-at-home burger buns on a wire rack in the oven until heated through, 3 minutes. Thinly slice the tomato.
Slice the burger buns in half and spread the bases with some of the mayonnaise. Top with the mixed salad leaves, beef patties, tomato and caramelised bacon. Serve with the fries.
