  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/fan 160ºC/gas 4.
  2. Using your hands or a wooden spoon, mix together the plant-based mince, red onion and red pepper; season well. Divide and shape into 8 balls.
  3. Trim the chilli cheese to reduce the size of the square slices – about 1cm off each side. With the remaining bits, mush together with your hands to form a ball. Divide this into 8 and shape into balls, then flatten slightly to make disc shapes.
  4. Press your thumb in the centre of the mince balls and place in the cheese discs, then shape back into balls so the cheese is hidden inside and press into a burger patty shape.​
  5. Heat the sunflower oil over a medium heat in a saucepan and fry the patties for 2 mins a side until nicely browned. Place on a baking tray and cook in the oven for a further 10-15 mins.
  6. Slice the buns in half and set aside.
  7. Top the burgers with the cheese slices and return to the oven for 1 min to just begin to melt.
  8. Place a lettuce leaf on a bun base, followed by a tomato slice, a burger patty, red onion and gherkins, if you like. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make 8 sliders. Serve straight away with a glass of cider.
