Sure, everyone rushes to the table when burgers are on the menu, but these ones will get them moving double-quick. That’s because we've topped each tender beef patty with a crispy piece of rasher bacon, caramelised in brown sugar – it adds a special touch and is super simple to make!

Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Cut the potato (unpeeled) into 1cm fries. Place the fries on an oven tray lined with baking paper, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, then bake until tender, 25-30 minutes.
TIP: Cut the potato to the correct size so it cooks in the allocated time!
While the fries are baking, combine the beef mince, egg, fine breadcrumbs and soy sauce in a medium bowl. Using damp hands, form the beef mixture into 2cm thick patties, slightly larger than your burger buns. You should get 1 patty per person.
TIP: Make a shallow indent in the centre of each patty, this will help prevent it from puffing up as it cooks.
In a large frying pan, heat a small drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook until golden and crisp, 3-4 minutes each side. Add the brown sugar and water and cook until dark and sticky, 30 seconds. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel.
When the fries have 10 minutes cook time remaining, wash the frying pan, then return the pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the beef patties and cook the until cooked through, 4-5 minutes each side.
While the patties are cooking, place the burger buns on a wire rack in the oven and bake until heated through, 3 minutes. Thinly slice the tomato into rounds.
Slice the burger buns in half and spread the bases with some of the mayonnaise. Top with the beef patties, caramelised bacon, tomato slices and some mixed salad leaves. Serve with the fries.
