Ingredients
2 tbsp Olive oil
2 onions, finely chopped
250g A bag of spinach
5 slices white bread, blitzed into breadcrumbs
(or 150g dried breadcrumbs)
good grating of fresh nutmeg
100g mature cheddar, grated
40g parmesan, finely grated
1-2 large eggs, beaten
3 tbsp plain flour

To Serve
6 crusty bread rolls
4 ripe, juicy tomatoes, thickly sliced
tomato Ketchup or relish
Sweet Potato Fries (optional)

Method

  1. Heat half the oil in frying pan and gently fry the onions for about 10 minutes
    until pale and soft, then leave to cool.
  2. Finely chop the spinach in a food processor and tip into a bowl. Add the cooled onion, breadcrumbs, nutmeg, cheddar and parmesan, and mash together. Add the beaten egg, a little at a time (you may not need all of it), until the mixture holds together. Divide into eight and shape into fat burgers.
  3. Put the flour in a shallow bowl, season well and dip the burgers into the flour to coat. Store in a plastic container between layers of baking parchment. Either chill until ready to cook or freeze.
  4. Heat the remaining oil in the frying pan and fry for about 5 minutes each side until browned all over.
  5. Serve in the crusty rolls, with a couple of slices of tomato and ketchup with sweet potato fries on the side if you choose.
