Juicy Flavorful Cheeseburger and Loaded Fries

 

Juicy Flavorful Cheeseburger & Loaded Fries

Who can resist a juicy and flavorful cheeseburger? Not me!!! I went to my Mother-In-Law’s family reunion in a small town in Texas and they had a county fair going on. Well honey help me because I had one of their burgers and almost fainted from the flavor. I mean really every bite was like heaven. It’s like I started chewing slowly as not to miss not one bit of the intense flavor!! Of course I am a woman who confronts a challenge head on, so I started disecting the burger so I could make one at home. One of the things I quickly noticed is that they buttered, seasoned and heated their bun, YUM! Then I realized they must have put something really juicy on this burger because the juices just spilled out with every bite. I came home and got right on it and BAM there it was, soooo gooood dribble drool dribble. OK, so here is this fabulous lonely burger, I felt compelled to give him company. I decided to go with loaded fries because those are my daughter’s favoriate! She’d say, “lots of cheese and bacon Mommy please”.

INGREDIENTS:

Burger –
80% Lean Ground Beef (I used 2 pounds but base yours on how many burgers you will make)
Potato Hamburger Buns (Obviously buy enough buns for 1 bun per burger)
American Cheese by the slice (1 slice per burger)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (3-4 tbs per batch of burgers)
1/2 cup Melted Butter
Sea Salt (to taste)
Ground Black Pepper (to taste)
Granulated Garlic (to taste)
Dried Tyme (to taste)
1/4 cup A1 Steak Sauce

Loaded Fries –
One 1-2 pound bag of frozen fries in a bag (I used the Oreda French Fried Potatoes)
Sea Salt (to taste)
7-8 slices of thick sliced pork bacon
1 cup of shredded colby cheese (I bought the block and shredded it because Colby is hard to find shredded)
1 cup of shredded monterary jack cheese

Thousand Island –
 1/2 cup Mayo (I use Helmans)
1/4 cup Ketchup
1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
2 tbs white vingear
2 tbs granulated sugar
Sea Salt (to taste)

  1. Take your ground beef out the package and put in large bowl
  2. Season your ground beef with sea salt, granulated garlic salt, thyme and ground black pepper
  3. mold your ground beef into pattys
  4. On a grill or in a grill pan add extra virgin olive oil and heat on high heat
  5. Once your extra virgin olive oil is very hot, turn it down to medimum and add your ground beef pattys (do not press down on the pattys allow them to stay plump)
  6. Brush your burgers with A1 sauce every time you flip them (cook 5-8 minutes on each side, flip them 3-4 times depending on how you like it cooked, I like well done)
  7. Add sea salt, ground pepper and thyme to melted butter and mix
  8. Brush your buns with the seasoned melted butter
  9. Put buns under broiler or in the oven at 400 for about 5-8 minutes or until butter has melted, set aside
  10. Make Thousand Island – in a bowl mix together the mayo, ketchup, sweet pickled relish, sugar, and white vingear (double the recipe if you have lots of burgers), set aside

  12. Make Fries according to back of bag, when they come out of oven, spinkle generously with sea salt
  13. Pile chopped bacon and colby & monterary cheeses on the fries and add back to the oven for about 8-10 minutes or until the cheese is melted
