I went to lots of dinner parties over summer and liked some of the dishes served. I used some and put my touch on things. I also used Halloumi instead of beef as my sister is vegetarian

Method

1. Chop the Halloumi into two thick slices
2. Chop the potato into wedges
3. Put the potato in a bowl and add 1 tbsp of oil and the chip seasoning.
4. Put the potato and Halloumi in a bowl and to the side.
5. Put 200ml of water in a pan and boil
6. In a frying pan and the 2tbsp of oil and heat. In another frying pan add the last tbsp of oil and heat
7. Add the peas to the boiling water and cook for 5 mins. In the pan with 2tbsp of oil anddd the wedges and cook. In the other pan add the Halloumi and cook
8. Meanwhile chop the mint and chilli and crush the garlic.
9. When the peas are cooked drain and put to the side.
10. Too check if the wedges are cooked cut into one and it should be soft and a yellowish colour.
The Halloumi will be cooked if it is a light brown colour and soft.
11. Cut the burger bun in half and cook both side for 2 mins.
12. Put the Greek yoghurt in a bowl. Add the harrisa paste and mix.
13. Mix the chilli with the garlic mint and peas. Put on a plate. Put the wedges on a plate and the base of the bun. And a dollap of sauce to the bun. Then add one lettuce leave, one slice of Halloumi, the tomato slice, the other slice of Halloumi, the other lettuce leaf and the rest of the sauce. Add the final bun and use a small cocktail stick to hold it all together. Serve with a nice drink and enjoy.
