Shaping hamburger patties

shapers to make your burgers.
Form 4 hamburger patties and place them in the fridge for 1 hour. This allows the flavours to develop, tenderises the meat, and firms up the mix.
Heat a frying pan with a little oil to a medium high heat, add the burgers. Ensure you get a good golden brown colour on both sides and cook to your liking.
Allow to rest for 3 or 4 minutes after cooking

For the chips
Peel and cut your potatoes into chunky chips, and rinse thoroughly in cold water to remove the starch.
Cook your chips in a large pan of lightly salted water until fully tender, then gently remove from the pan.
Place them on a wire rack to allow them to dry. This can be done overnight (in the fridge), to ensure the chips dry out thoroughly.
Heat your oil to 135 deg celcius, then fry your chips in small batches. Fry until a skin has formed, for about 5 minutes.
Drain and chill. Ideally overnight.
Heat the oil to 185 deg celcius. Fry the chips until golden brown and crispy. Drain onto kitchen paper, and season with Maldon sea salt, and serve immediately
