  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C.
  2. Toss the sweet potato chips with 1 tbsp of the oil, the dried herbs, salt and black pepper.
  3. Spread out in a single layer across 2 lined baking trays and bake for 30-35 mins, turning after 20 mins, until browned at the edges.
  4. Meanwhile, heat the rest of the oil in a large frying pan and cook the onion for 5-6 mins or until soft and browned. Scoop the onions into a bowl and set aside.
  5. Put the mince into a large bowl and mix in the diced apple, garlic granules and plenty of black pepper.
  6. Divide the mixture into 4 and shape into wide, thin patties. Pop the burgers into the same pan that had the onions and cook on a medium heat for 4-6 mins on each side until browned and cooked through.
  7. To serve, spread a little mayo onto each bun, if you like, followed by a few salad leaves and top with a burger. Add some fried onions to the top and a scoop of sweet potato fries to each plate.
