Lucky Star Pilchard and Chakalaka burgers
Recipe: Lucky Star

Serves: 4
Preparation time: 30 min
Cooking Time: 15 min

For the patties
2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 tin Lucky Star Pilchards in Sweet Chilli Sauce
½ onion, finely chopped
Handful fresh parsley, chopped
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
½ cup flour
1 egg, beaten
1 cup corn flakes, crushed
Salt and pepper, to season
For the burgers
4 wholewheat bread rolls
Fresh rocket
1 tin Lucky star Chakalaka, warmed up
½ cucumber, sliced into ribbons using a vegetable peeler
Sweet chilli sauce
¼ cup mayonnaise

For the patties
Boil the sweet potatoes in water until just falling apart. Drain and mash until smooth.
Debone pilchards and flake. *Chef’s Tip: This is an optional step as the bones are safe to eat.
In a large bowl, mix together flaked pilchard, mashed potato, onion, a tablespoon or two of sauce from the tin, freshly chopped parsley and the breadcrumbs. Season with some salt and pepper to taste. The mixture should hold together well.
Form medium sized balls in your hands and press down to form patty shapes.
Crush the corn flakes and place in a shallow bowl.
Dust each patty with flour, then dip into the egg, then crushed corn flakes.
Place on a tray and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
Remove patties from the fridge. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a shallow pan and fry patties for 10-15 minutes on either side, until golden and crispy.
To assemble
Slice buns in half and lightly toast them in the hot pan.
Spread a generous amount of mayonnaise the inside of each half.
Add a big scoop of chakalaka.

Pile some fresh rocket, your Pilchard patty and cucumber ribbons on top of each other, finish with a drizzle of sweet chilli sauce and ENJOY!
