Recipe for two - Zucchini burger with twice baked potatoes.

For the burger;

2 zucchini, grated 
1 spring onion, minced
1 tbsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
½ teaspoon paprika
1/2 egg
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, finely grated
1 tbsp flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped
salt, pepper for seasoning

First of all, mix the grated zucchini with a teaspoon of salt and let sit for about 30 minutes, than take your zucchini and squeeze any excess liquid with your hands.

In a large bowl, combine zucchini, parsley, parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, spring onion and egg. Shape into two burger and place on an baking tray, lined with baking paper. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes, until golden brown.

For the potatoes:

6 small potatoes
1 spring onion
1 tbsp basil chopped
1/2 egg
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 tsp english mustard
salt, pepper for seasoning

Wash potatoes and place them onto a baking tray lined with baking paper. Bake in a preheated oven at 200C until soft in the middle. 
When the potatoes are done, let them cool completely before cutting of the top third of each potato.
Scoop out the inside and mash it with fork. Add in spring onion, basil and half of the cheddar cheese, mix until well combined. Taste it and season with salt & pepper, if needed.
Fill the potato shells with the mixture. Top with the remaining cheddar cheese & bake in a preheated oven at 200C for 10 minutes.

Tips: if you want, you can add to the mashed potatoes some bacon or chorizo, sauted before in a frying pan.
