Ingredients

•2 lbs of ground beef (85/15)

•2 eggs

•1⁄2 yellow onion

•2 tsp dijon mustard

•2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

•1 tsp minced garlic

•1 tsp salt

•1 tsp pepper

•1 tsp olive oil •Cooking spray

•2 Roma tomatoes

•1 head of romaine lettuce

•2 large sweet potatoes

•1 jalapeño (optional)

 

Preparation

•In a large bowl whisk two eggs and add in 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce, 2 tsp dijon mustard, 1 tsp minced garlic, 1⁄2 finely chopped onion, and 1 tsp salt and pepper

•Add in beef and mix together. Try and handle the meat as little as possible as it will get tough

•Use a scale if you have one to portion out 4oz balls and shape into a patty. Aim for 10 patties.

•Making a shallow imprint with your thumb into the patty will prevent it from puffing up during cooking.

•To cook your burgers, use a grill for best results. If you don’t have access to a grill heat a skillet over medium to medium high heat and cook with a small amount of oil. The burgers are done when they have reached in internal temperature of 160°F.

•While your burgers are cooking, wash and peel your sweet potatoes. Preheat your oven to 425°F. Cut potatoes into 1⁄4”x 1⁄4” matchstick shapes. Placing the potatoes in ice cold water for at least 30 minutes prior to cooking may help with crispiness. This step is optional.

•Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray with oil. Spread the potatoes out over the foil but be sure you don’t overcrowd the sheet. Spray the top of the potatoes with oil and season with salt and pepper or your favorite seasoning.

•Cook for 10 minutes and then flip the potatoes and cook for 5-10 additional minutes. Watch the pota- toes closely as they are prone to burn.

This recipe makes 5 servings. In each of your containers put two hamburger patties, two pieces of lettuce, tomato slices, one piece of cheese, and split the sweet potato fries evenly 5 ways.
