Homemade hamburger meal
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 ͦC, or as directed on packet. Place the wedges on an oven tray covered with foil and lightly sprayed with cooking oil to prevent sticking. Cook the wedges for 10-15 minutes or as directed on the packet, until golden brown.
  2. Meanwhile, lightly spray a large non-stick pan with oil and heat it to medium-high. Chop the onion into thin slices. Add the onion and beef patties to the pan and cook for 10 minutes, or until browned, turning once.
  3. Slice the tomatoes.
  4. Place a piece of paper towel on a plate. Once the patties are cooked, gently press them with the paper towel to remove any excess oil. Remove the wedges from the oven and divide them onto each plate. Add the beef patties, onion, sauce, tomato and baby spinach to the buns, and serve.
