Burger Topped with Sweet Potato Fries and Beer Caramelized Onions


• 2 1/4 lb ground beef
• 2 large eggs
• 1/3 teaspoon salt and pepper
• 1/3 cup bread crumbs
• 1 1/2 cup shredded gruyere cheese
• 6 Turano Gourmet Sandwich Rolls
• 1 avocado

Sweet Potato Fries
• 4 sweet potatoes, cut into matchsticks
• 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil plus more for cooking
• 1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
• 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
• kosher salt and black pepper

Beer Caramelized onions
• 2 tablespoons salted butter
• 2 large yellow onions, thinly sliced
• 1 cup beer (lager or pilsner)


① In a medium bowl, combine the ground beef, eggs, salt, pepper, bread crumbs. Form the mix into 5-6 equal burgers. Place on a plate, cover, and transfer to the fridge.
② To make the fries. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place the sweet potatoes on a large baking sheet and toss with olive oil, chili powder, paprika, and a large pinch each of salt and pepper. Spread the fries in an even layer. Transfer to the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, then flip and bake for 15-20 minutes more.
③ Meanwhile, make the onions. Melt the butter and onions together in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally until softened, about 5 minutes. At this point, you want to slowly add the beer, 1/4 cup at a time, until the beer cooks into the onions. Continue to cook another 8-10 minutes until you've used all of the beer and the onions are deeply caramelized. Remove the onions from the skillet to a plate.
④ Cook the burgers in the same skillet, heat a drizzle of oil over medium-high heat. When the oil shimmers, add the burgers and cook until fully cooked through or desired temperature. During the last minute of cooking add the Gruyere cheese, cook until the cheese has melted.
⑤ To assemble, mash avocado on the bottom bun, then place each burger on top, add caramelized onions and sweet potatoes and finish with top bun. Enjoy!
