To make this Slimming World recipe, preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6. Cook the chips in a large saucepan of lightly salted boiling water over a high heat for 5 minutes. Drain, return to the saucepan and shake to rough up the edges.
Spray a baking sheet with low-calorie cooking spray. Transfer the chips to the tray, spray lightly with low-calorie cooking spray and cook in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on all sides, turning occasionally.
Meanwhile, put the onion, garlic, beef and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl, season to taste and combine using your fingers. Divide the mixture into four portions and shape each one into a burger.
Put the burgers on the grill pan, spray with low-calorie cooking spray and grill for 10-12 minutes or until cooked through, turning once.
Grill the bacon alongside the burgers until done to your liking, and top the burgers with the cheese for the last 2 minutes of the cooking time to melt.
Fill each roll with tomato, lettuce, cucumber, two bacon rashers, a burger and 1 tbsp passata. Serve hot with the chips and salad.
