INSTRUCTIONS


1.

Preheat the oven to 425 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2.

Place the potatoes in a large pot with water on medium high heat and bring to a boil. Once the water starts boiling, cook the potatoes for 3-5 minutes.

3.

Using tongs, remove the potatoes from the water and place on a clean dish towel. Pat them dry with another towel to dry completely. Place a layer of potatoes evenly on the prepared baking sheet, toss with the oil and a sprinkle of salt. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden.

4.

Add the onions and oil to a small saucepan over medium low heat. Cook low and slow to caramelize the onions.

5.

Form the ground into two round balls. Loosely wrap plastic wrap around the base of a small pot. Heat a large frying pan over medium high heat. When the pan is hot, add the ground, spaced as far apart as possible. Smash the burgers down with the bottom of the pot. Season with salt and pepper. Cook 3-4 minutes then flip. Cook until cooked through, 2-3 more minutes. Top with cheese and cover until the cheese is melted and burgers are cooked to your liking.

6.

Toast your buns. Mix together the burger sauce ingredients. Assemble your burgers with the burger sauce, burger patty, lettuce, tomato, pickles, and caramelized onions. Serve with the oven fries.
