Method
  • Preheat the oven to 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.

Arrange the batons in a single layer on the baking trays. Drizzle with 1tsp of the oil and cook for 20 mins until golden and crisp.

  • Heat the remaining oil in a nonstick frying pan over a medium setting and fry the burgers for 5-6 mins each side until cooked through.

  • Mix the mayonnaise with the lime juice.

  • Split and lightly toast the 4 rolls and fill with the shredded lettuce, tomatoes, a little of the lime mayo and the burgers.
