INGREDIENTS:

For The French Fries:

  • ½ a cup of unsalted butter
  • 4 potatoes chopped into wedges with the skin on
  • Fine sea salt

6 Of Your Favorite Burger Buns (Sesame Seed Topped Are The Classic Option)

TO TOP:

  • American style mustard
  • Tomato ketchup
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 sliced fresh tomatoes
  • Pickle slices
  • Iceberg lettuce
  • Real mayonnaise

METHOD:

  • Heat up your grill or barbecue so it is hot enough to make a good sizzle when flicked with water.
  • Lay out some foil, and put the butter and potato slices with some seasoning in the middle. Wrap them up in the foil. And place on the grill for twenty minutes before you start to cook the beef patties.
  • Form the patties by mixing the beef, onion, and egg together in a bowl and mixing with your hands. Pull the mixture into six evenly sized balls, then flatten with your hands or a spatula to make thick burger patties.
  • E grill, and let them cook for five minutes on each side. Top each patty with a slice of cheese for the last minute of cooking time and allow it to melt.
  • Open the foil wrapping and see if your fries are ready by pushing a fork into them – they should be soft inside. When ready, close up the foil wrap again and shake to ensure the melted butter and seasoning has evenly covered the fries.
  • Put a swirl each of ketchup and mustard on the bottom part of each hamburger bun. Add a hot burger, then top each one with a piece of lettuce, a tomato slice, and a couple of slices of pickle. Smooth some mayo onto the top half of the bun to finish. Ranch dressing can make a nice alternative if you haven’t got mayo or don’t like it.

TIPS:

  •  You can season the potato wedges with garlic or different spices like paprika or cayenne pepper for different flavors.
  •  You can add different toppings to your burgers. Popular choices include bacon, a fried egg, onion rings, different types of cheese, and mushrooms. You can also try different sauces such as barbecue sauce or chili sauce.
