Ingredients

  • 4 baking potatoes, unpeeled, each cut into 8-10 wedges
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • zest and juice 1 lemon
  • 50g fresh breadcrumb
  • 500g pack pork mince
  • 50g grated Parmesan
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1 large garlic clove, crushed

Tip

Make it into a meatball sarnie
Replace the lemon zest and parsley with a pinch dried chilli flakes and 1 tsp fennel seeds. Shape into small meatballs and grill or fry until cooked through. Serve piled into ciabatta rolls with a spoonful fried onions and peppers.

Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Toss potato wedges in a large roasting tin with 1 tbsp oil and lemon juice. Spread out in a single layer. Bake for 35-45 mins, turning halfway, until golden brown and crisp.

  2. Meanwhile, place the breadcrumbs in a mixing bowl and moisten with 2 tbsp cold water. Add the mince, Parmesan, parsley, garlic and lemon zest. Season, mix well, then shape into 4 large, flat patties.

  3. Heat remaining oil in a pan and cook the patties for 7 mins on each side, or until they have a golden crust and are cooked through (alternatively, cook on the barbecue). Serve with the wedges and a tomato and rocket salad, if you like
