Chorizo Pork Burgers & Paprika Wedges

Recipe Ingredients:

  • Enough new potatoes for 4 people (or more)

  • 2 (separate) tea spoons of sweet paprika

  • 2 half a tea spoons of chilli powder

  • 50 grs of chorizo (if you like it a lot 100grs)

  • 4 slices of French toast

  • 1 garlic clove

  • 500grs of minced lean pork

  • 1 egg

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 4 slices o Derbyshire cheddar (it can be found at Asda)

  • 2 spoons of olive oil

  • 1 spoon of plain flour

In bowl I crushed the French toast till resembled bread crumbs added some salt pepper; chorizo finely chopped; the garlic minced; one spoon of paprika; the 1/2 chilli powder, mix this well. Then added the minced pork, combining it (with hands) all until well mixed at this stage added the egg, continue mixing until well mixed again. At this stage shaped the mixture into four about 2" thick burgers (see the picture) and lay these on a board to rest the meat.
while waiting I washed and cut into quarters lengthways new potatoes (enough for four people) dried them well with a kitchen cloth, then in the bowl added the other 1/2 chilli powder; 2 spoons of olive oil; salt and pepper to taste and the other spoon of paprika (if you want as is to be served with pork you can also add fresh chopped rosemary) and finally the flour, mix this well with the potatoes, and placed it in the oven at gas mark 200 for 40 minutes.
After 20 minutes of the potatoes being in I placed the burgers in the griddle pan leaving it 8 minutes on each side then place the sliced cheese on top and a little oregano and to the oven, finishing them off with a grill blast ... but all should finish at the same time as the potatoes, and why not in those 4 minutes rustle a salad.
On mine I used baby plum tomatoes some red onion thinly sliced carrot, mixed salad leaves, read bell pepper thinly sliced, a little sea salt some oregano and olive oil and white wine vinegar.
Arranged all in your plate and bellow is what it looks like (it was yummy)...please leave some feedback.
