Prepare in Advance:

  1. Dried Onions: Chop 1 fresh onion finely and bake in an oven preheated to 140°C for 30-40 minutes.

Seasoned Potatoes:

  1. Wash and cut the potatoes into quarters. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Drizzle with rapeseed oil. Sprinkle with dried thyme, rosemary, paprika powder, and cumin seeds. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix well.
  2. Place the potatoes in an oven preheated to 160°C (convection) for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Baked Bacon:

  1. Arrange bacon slices on a second baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place in the oven with the potatoes and bake until the bacon is crispy.

Burger Patties:

  1. Add chopped onion, sliced pickles, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper, and barbecue sauce to the ground pork. Mix thoroughly.
  2. Place a piece of parchment paper on a cutting board and coat with rapeseed oil. Form 8 balls from the meat mixture, place on the paper, and flatten into patties that match the size of the buns. Refrigerate for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Preheat a grill pan and coat with rapeseed oil. Fry the patties for about 3 minutes on each side. Transfer the partially cooked patties to an ovenproof dish and bake at 160°C (convection) for 5 minutes.


  1. Mix the cream, ketchup, lemon juice, dried onion, and chopped green onions in a bowl. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
