- Prepare the oven to 200 °C (180°C fan oven) gas mark 6. Put the wedges in a roasting tin and drizzle with a little oil. Roast for 20 minutes on their own.
- Put the mince in a bowl and mix together with the thyme, chilli flakes and egg. Divide the mixture in o four. Take one portion and spread flat into a small circle, pat the middle to make a shallow well, then put quarter of the cheese on top.
- Season, and then wrap the beef around and over the cheese to cover.
- Shape into a ball then flatten slightly into a burger. Repeat with remaining mince and cheese to make all 4 burgers. Add the burgers alongside the wedges and cook for 15-20 minutes until the burgers are cooked all the way through and the wedges are golden.
- Toast the burger buns, top with lettuce, sliced tomato, cucumber and red onion then the burger. Add some chutney and then enjoy!
