Hamburgers in wholemeal buns with fresh salad ingredients and relish, served with a side of charred baby carrots and roast tomatoes.
1. Set oven to 220°C, grill (see notes). Trim baby carrots (halve larger ones) and cut each tomato into 4 slices. Toss with oil, salt and picked oregano leaves on a lined oven tray. Roast for 15 minutes, or until tender.

2. Heat a large frypan over medium-high heat. Rub patties with oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until just cooked through.

3. Slice cucumber and apple, separate lettuce leaves. Set aside at the table.

4. Have rolls and warm in the oven or in a dry pan for 3-4 minutes (optional).

5. Assemble burgers at the table with beef patty, relish and fresh ingredients. Serve accompanies with roast carrots and tomatoes (see notes).

NOTES
All ovens are different! If using the grill setting, make sure to watch so the carrots and tomatoes don’t burn. If unsure, set the oven to 250°C, conventional heat, and roast for 20 minutes.
Serve roasted tomatoes in the burger or on the side with roasted carrots. Add any other favourite sauce such as tomato sauce or mayonnaise (optional).
No beef option - beef patties are replaced with chicken schnitzels. Increase cooking time to ensure chicken is cooked through. Season with half of the oregano.
