Preheat the oven to 240°C/220°C fan-forced. Cut the potato into fries, then place on a lined oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt. Toss to coat, spread out evenly, then bake until tender, 20-25 minutes.
While the fries are baking, thinly slice the red onion and tomato. In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Cook the onion, stirring, until softened, 4-5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, then add the balsamic vinegar, water and brown sugar and stir to combine. Cook until dark and sticky, 3-5 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and set aside.
While the onion is cooking, finely chop the garlic. In a large bowl, combine the garlic, egg, venison & beef mince, Nan's special seasoning and fine breadcrumbs. Season with salt and pepper. Using damp hands, shape the mixture into patties slightly larger than your burger buns. You should get 1 patty per person.
TIP: Make a shallow indentation in the centre of each patty to help prevent it puffing up as it cooks.
When the fries have 10 minutes cook time remaining, wipe out the frying pan and return to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the patties until just cooked through, 4-5 minutes each side. In the last 2-3 minutes of cook time, sprinkle the shredded Cheddar cheese over the patties and cover with a lid (or foil) to melt the cheese.
TIP: Reduce the heat of the pan to medium if the patties begin to char.
While the patties are cooking, bake the butter burger buns directly on a wire oven rack until heated through, 2-3 minutes. Meanwhile, add the mayonnaise to the bowl with the caramelised onion and stir to combine.
Slice the burger buns in half, then spread with the caramelised onion mayo. Top with the mixed salad leaves, a cheesy venison and beef patty and tomato. Serve with the fries.
