Ingredients For The Patty

  • 500g Lean mince beef
  • Juicy Lean Mini Burgers
  • 2 Tablespoons of Worcestershire Sauce
  • A Splash of Tomato Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1 tsp Chilli Flakes
  • 1/2 Red or White Onion

To Serve

  • Lettuce or Rocket
  • 1 Tomato
  • 1 Sweet Potato
  • Bacon & cheese (optional)


  1. Start by slicing the sweet potato into thin circles and coat them in a healthy oil of your choice, I use coconut or hemp seed, and then crackle on some pepper, chilli flakes and a tiny pinch of salt if required.
  2. Pop these into a pre-heated oven at 180 degrees. They will take about 20-25 minutes.
  3. While the sweet potatoes are baking, put the beef mince and all of the patty ingredients into a large bowl and kneed together until fully combined.
  4. Grab a small handful of the mince and roll it into a neat ball, flatten it to your desired thickness and repeat until you have about 6-8 mini patties.
  5. I always seal the burgers in a frying pan first, so heat a pan with a little oil and place each burger in on a medium heat. These will only take 5 minutes to brown on both sides.
  6. Once browned, you can put them into the grill/oven for a final 8-15 minutes or until they are piping hot throughout and depending on how you like them; rare, medium or well done.
Serve the burgers with the sweet potato slices instead of buns and pop salad in too as you would a normal burger. You could opt for a slice of cheese or even some lean bacon to jazz it up a little and give a greasy take-away a run for it's money! Try these on the BBQ for a healthy summer treat and don't forget you can freeze these immediately once you've made them and they've cooled down and use them within 3 months, or pop them in a container cooked and have them with salad for lunch the day after. Enjoy!
