1 1/2 cups dried breadcrumbs
60ml plus 40ml whole milk
1 large yellow onion, grated on the large-hole side of a box grater
1 large egg, lightly beaten
900g lean beef mince
40ml fresh lime juice (from about 1 lime)
60ml tomato ketchup, plus extra for serving
3 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 tbsp salt
3/4 tsp paprika
1 tbsp olive oil
12 mini hamburger rolls or Cuban rolls
1) Place the breadcrumbs in a large bowl. Cover with milk and soak for 2 minutes. Add the onion, the beaten egg, minced beef, lime juice, tomato ketchup, garlic powder, salt and paprika, and work the ingredients together with your hands or a wooden spoon just until combined. Form the mixture into 12 small 2 1/2-cm thick patties and refrigerate them for at least 45 minutes or up to 8 hours.

2) Heat the olive oil in a large heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Add about half of the burgers and brown them on each side, flipping with spatula, 5-7 minutes. Set the fritas on the rolls and cook the remaining burgers.

Serve with generous amounts of tomato ketchup.
