Step 1:

In a large mixing bowl, combine the minced beef, oregano, basil, smoked paprika, ground cayenne, onion, black pepper, salt, and egg. Shape into one large ball and ensure everything is held tightly together. If you find the mixture too runny and not sticking, add a little flour.

Step 2:

Separate the large ball into 4 equally sized chunks and proceed to shape them into burger patties. Set aside for now.

Step 3:

Chop your sweet potato into the shape of long, skinny fries.

Step 4:

Transfer into a large mixing bowl. Add paprika, cayenne pepper, wild herb cooking salt and a dash of extra virgin olive oil. Mix until the fries are well coated.

Step 5:

Heat two separate frying pans on a medium heat. Add a generous helping of olive oil to both pans.

Step 6:

In one pan, fry the sweet potato fries until golden brown and crispy. Make sure you turn them regularly.

Step 7:

In the other pan, fry your 4 burger patties for about 12 minutes or until nicely browned and cooked through. Turn halfway. Toward the last 2 or 3 minutes, place your cheese slices on top so that they melt.

Step 8:

To serve, place your burger on the bottom half of a burger bun. On top, stack tomato, lettuce, cucumber, and pickles. Add any sauces or relish of your choice and then ‘close’ the burger with the top half of the bun.

Step 9:

Serve with sweet potato fries.
