A note about serious food allergies

Add a bit of sweet (onion jam), a hint of heat (red pepper flakes), and just a touch of the tang (balsamic), and you've got a flavor combination to beat the band. (Ever wonder where that phrase came from? We definitely do.) Add all this flavor, plus cheese, to a meaty burger and what have you got? A meal that's the bee's knees. (Wonder who came up with that one!)

  1. 1

    Roast the Potatoes and Garlic

    Cut potatoes into 1/2"-thick wedges and pat dry.

    Place potatoes on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Massage oil, salt, and pepper into potatoes.

    Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until tender, 25-30 minutes, flipping once halfway through.

    While potatoes roast, place garlic on a piece of foil and drizzle with 1/2 tsp. olive oil. Form a small pouch around garlic.

    Place directly on oven rack in hot oven, opening side up, and roast until golden brown, 12-15 minutes.

    While potatoes and garlic roast, continue recipe.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve and peel onion. Slice halves into thin strips.

    Season ground beef with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Form into two equally-sized patties, about 5" in diameter.

  3. 3

    Make the Onion Jam

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add onions and a pinch of salt and pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally until browned, 10-12 minutes.

    If pan becomes dry, add water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, as needed. Add balsamic vinegar. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir occasionally until liquid is almost entirely evaporated, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Stir in red pepper flakes (to taste).

    While onions cook, continue recipe.

  4. 4

    Toast Buns and Cook Patties

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1/2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add buns to hot pan, cut side down. Toast until browned, 1-2 minutes.

    Transfer buns to a plate. Keep pan over medium heat.

    Add patties to hot pan and cook until browned and patties reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes per side, covering pan after flipping patties.

    Remove from burner. Top patties evenly with softened cheese spread. Patties and pan will be hot! Use a utensil. Cover pan until cheese is melted, 1-2 minutes.

  5. 5

    Make Garlic Aioli and Finish Dish

    Carefully, unwrap foil pouch and transfer garlic to a mixing bowl. Mash until slightly chunky.

    Stir in mayonnaise until combined.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing onion jam on bottom bun and topping with patty, arugula, and top bun. Serve potatoes with garlic aioli on the side for dipping. Bon appétit!
