  1. Preheat a gas barbecue to medium-high or heat a charcoal barbecue until the coals are white and there are no flames. Brush the burgers with olive oil, then barbecue for 7-8 mins each side or until cooked through, topping each with a Fire Pit Red Leicester chilli burger melt for the final 5 mins of cooking. Transfer to a plate, cover loosely with foil and set aside for 5 mins.

  2. Meanwhile, cook the bacon to pack instructions until crispy. Halve the burger buns and barbecue to toast.

  3. Spread 1 tsp Tesco Finest chilli relish over the base of each bun and top each with a cooked patty, 2 rashers of bacon and 5g wild rocket. Spread the inside of each bun lid with 1 tsp light mayonnaise, then top the burgers to serve.
