- Preheat the oven. Mix together the beef mince, egg, paprika, oregano, Worcestershire sauce and half the onion. Season with salt and pepper. Form into 4 burger shapes the same size as the buns.
- Parboil the potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 4-5 minutes. Place the potatoes on a baking tray and drizzle with 1 tbsp oil. Season with salt and pepper. Bake the potatoes for 20 minutes, or until crispy.
- Place the burgers on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 10 minutes, turning over once, or until cooked to your liking.
- Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan and cook the remaining onion for 5-6 minutes, or until soft. Set aside.
- Top the potato wedges with the cheese and cooked onion and return to the oven for 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
- Spread each of the toasted rolls with ketchup or mayonnaise, if using, and top with a burger. Add tomato slices and lettuce and serve alongside the cheese and onion wedges.
