  1. Place the mince in a large mixing bowl and add the chopped onion, herbs, beaten egg and season with salt and pepper. Mix well until all the ingredients are combined.
  2. Using wet clean hands to stop the mixture sticking, shape the burgers by dividing the mixture into four. Pop the burgers into the fridge to chill for 30 minutes.
  3. In the meantime preheat the oven to 240°C / Gas Mark 9.
  4. Pre heat the grill to medium (or heat a grill pan if preferred) – Personally I prefer to use my Tefal Optigrill
  5. Grate the zest from the lemon into the mayo along with the juice for the lemon. Mixand chill until needed.
  6. Spread some McCain French Fries in a single layer on a large oven sheet and bake in the oven for 14-16 minutes or until they are crisp and golden.
  7. While the fries are cooking, place the burgers on the grill tray or grill pan, drizzle with a little olive oil and cook for 7-8 minutes on each side, ensuring they are cooked through before serving.
  8. Serve in buns with the McCain French Fries, salad leaves and lemon mayo.
