Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 20 oz. ground beef, follow same instructions as 10 oz., forming four patties and stacking two to serve.

  • If using Impossible burger, cook until patties reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 3-4 minutes per side. 

  1. 1

    Roast the Fries

    Cut potatoes into 1/4" fries and pat dry. Place fries on prepared baking sheet and toss with 4 tsp. olive oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Spread into a single layer.

    Roast in hot oven until lightly browned, 25-30 minutes, tossing once halfway through.

    Carefully remove from oven. Add ranch seasoning and stir to combine. Sheet and fries will be hot! Use a utensil.

    While fries roast, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Core tomato and cut into 1/2" rounds.

    Peel and halve shallot. Slice thinly.

    Form ground beef into two equally-sized patties, about 5" in diameter. Season patties on both sides with blackening seasoning and a pinch of salt.

  3. 3

    Toast the Buns

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Spray cut-sides of buns with cooking spray. Add buns, cut-side down, to hot, dry pan and toast until lightly browned, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Transfer buns to a plate and set aside. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  4. 4

    Make the Bacon Topping

    Return pan used to toast buns to medium heat. Add bacon and shallots to hot pan. Stir occasionally until bacon is crispy and shallots are browned, 2-3 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    Transfer shallot-bacon mixture to a mixing bowl. Add softened cream cheese and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir until combined. Set aside.

  5. 5

    Cook Patties and Finish Dish

    Place another large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add patties to hot pan. Cook until lightly charred and beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side.

    Top patties with cheese. Cover and let melt, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping bottom bun with patty, tomatoes, bacon topping, and top bun. Bon appétit!
