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. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Toss to coat, then bake until tender, 20-25 minutes.
TIP: Cut the potato to the correct size so it cooks in the allocated time!
While the fries are baking, thinly slice the red onion. In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until softened, 5-6 minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar, water and brown sugar and mix well. Reduce the heat to medium and cook until dark and sticky, 3-5 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl.
While the onion is cooking, thinly slice the tomato. In a small bowl, combine the garlic aioli and BBQ sauce. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine the beef mince, All-American spice blend, fine breadcrumbs (see ingredients list), the salt, egg and a good pinch of pepper. Mix well. Shape the beef mixture into evenly sized patties slightly larger than your burger buns and set aside on a plate. 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.
Wash the frying pan and return to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the beef patties and cook until cooked through, 4-5 minutes each side. In the last 1-2 minutes of cook time, sprinkle the shredded Cheddar cheese over the patties and cover with a lid so the cheese melts.
While the patties are cooking, place the burger buns directly on a wire rack in the oven and bake until heated through, 3 minutes.
Slice the burger buns in half. Spread the base of each bun with a layer of BBQ aioli and top with a cheesy beef patty, some caramelised onion, tomato and mixed salad leaves. Serve with the fries and any remaining BBQ aioli.
