Homemade Beef Burgers & Oven-baked Chips

The weather was just blissful in Dublin today. When the sun shines there is nothing better to eat than a good homemade beef burger. These burgers taste really special. It’s the one recipe One Yummy Daddy told me not to share, he loves it that much. (He thinks it’s going to make us millions one day!)

But I’m an all or nothing girl and just had to share. Lils nearly swallows these whole. I simply serve them with peas for herself then load on the onions and mushrooms for us.

Tip: It’fresh thyme s the fresh thyme that gives these burgers that extra something special… I buy a pot of it every so often in the weekly shop. This recipe will serve a family of 4.


  • olive oil or fry light
  • 450 g extra lean mince
  • a few sprigs of fresh thyme
  • a few sprigs of fresh parsley
  • 1 onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 beef stock cube
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

For the chips:

  • 6 large potatoes
  • olive oil or fry light


Preheat the oven to 180°c / gas mark 4.

Grate the onion and crush the garlic.

Chop the fresh thyme leaves and parsley and crumble the beef stock cube, adding them all into the mince along with the onion powder and garlic salt.

Get your hands in and give a good mix.

Roll the mince into 4 balls then flatten into a burger shape.

Cover with cling film and leave in the fridge while you make the chips.

Peel the potatoes and slice them length-ways to make rectangular chips.

Add the chips to boiling water and cook for 6 minutes then drain off the water.

Spray a baking tray with olive oil / fry light and place on the chips. Put them on the top shelf of the oven and cook for 45 minutes.

After 20 minutes, give the chips a shake and spray them again with olive oil / fry light.

Put the burgers on a baking tray on the middle shelf of the oven at 180°c.

Cook for 20 minutes, flipping them after 10 minutes.

Enjoy x
