Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Cut the potato (unpeeled) into 1cm fries. Spread the fries over an oven tray lined with baking paper and sprinkle with the sweet paprika (see ingredients list). Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Toss to coat, then bake until tender, 25-30 minutes. TIP: Cut the potato to the correct size to ensure it cooks in the allocated time!


While the fries are baking, thinly slice the red onion. In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until softened, 5-6 minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar, water and brown sugar and mix well. Reduce the heat to medium and cook until dark and sticky, 3-5 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl.


While the onion is caramelising, thinly slice the tomato. Shred the cos lettuce leaves. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise and BBQ sauce. Set aside. In a large bowl, add the beef mince, All-American spice blend, fine breadcrumbs (see ingredients list), salt, egg and a good pinch of pepper. Mix well, then shape the beef mixture into evenly sized patties slightly larger than your burger buns.


Wash the frying pan and return to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the beef patties and cook until cooked through, 4-5 minutes each side. In the last 1-2 minutes of cook time, sprinkle the shredded Cheddar cheese over the patties and cover the pan with a lid (or foil) so the cheese melts.


While the patties are cooking, place the bake-at-home burger buns on a wire rack in the oven until heated through, 3 minutes.


Slice the burger buns in half. Spread each burger bun with a layer of BBQ mayo and top with a beef patty, caramelised onion, tomato and cos lettuce. Serve with the potato fries and any remaining BBQ mayo.
