Burgers

  • 450g / 1lb of cooked, mashed potatoes
  • 8 scallions, finely chopped
  • 1 medium egg
  • 4 tablespoons of semi-skimmed milk
  • 75g / 3 oz. of wholegrain breadcrumbs - around 2 slices
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Salsa

  • 225g / 8 oz. of firm, ripe tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon dried, ground coriander

Method

Burgers

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F / Gas Mark 4
  2. To get them at the right constancy, prepare the mashed potatoes several hours in advance and refrigerate
  3. Mix the scallions into the chilled potato
  4. In a small mixing bowl, beat the egg and milk with a whisk. Stir half the egg and milk mixture into potatoes and season with salt and pepper
  5. Shape the potatoes into four burgers. Ensure they are relatively flat so that they fully cook in the oven
  6. Dip each one first into the remaining egg and milk and then into the dried/toasted breadcrumbs to coat
  7. Place the burgers on a baking tray or grill and place in the oven for approximately 15 minutes, or until the burgers are golden brown and piping hot throughout

Salsa

  1. Pour boiling water over the tomatoes, and let sit for one minute. This helps to remove the skin easily
  2. Drain and cover with cold water
  3. Peel the skin off each tomato and chop
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine all the salsa ingredients

Serving Suggestions

Serve the burgers immediately with your fresh homemade salsa and a crispy side salad
